Bradford Park Avenue will feel like they are walking on air as they journey to Runcorn FC Halton for a UniBond Premier Division noon showdown tomorrow following a massive win in midweek.

Avenue had to come from a goal down and bounce back from an 89th-minute equaliser to beat Farsley Celtic 4-3 in a breathtaking match at Horsfall Stadium.

The three hard-earned points took them above their neighbours and close rivals.

However, the victory celebrations have been dampened after news that midfielder Greg Challender suffered a collapsed lung following a rib injury during the game and will miss tomorrow's match.

And all this after he received a bruised jaw following an incident in the tunnel at half-time in the win at Witton Albion last Saturday.

An Avenue victory would put them six points clear of Farsley, who are in FA Cup third qualifying round action tomorrow, and keep them in touch with the leaders.

"I think Wednesday's win showed what a great team spirit we have in the squad at the club," said Bradford boss Gary Brook.

"The eight players we had out with in-jury all came along to watch. That is not something I have told them to do - they do it because they genuinely care about the club and their mates who can make it on to the pitch.

"There are no little cliques at this club. I see to that and I did the same when I was at Ossett Town. I make no apologies for it. Little self-serving groups are very divisive and can damage morale beyond repair.

"All we have here are good players who want to be involved - that was easy to see when we won against Farsley. They scored in the last minute and we got the winner in injury time. The players who aren't fit were all in the stand behind the dug-outs and they were jumping out of their seats.

"That's what I mean when I say it was a massive win for the confidence factor."

Sweeper Wayne Benn picked up an ankle injury in midweek but he is expected to recover in time. New signing Steve Smith - a forward from Stalybridge Celtic - made a cameo debut appearance from the bench on Wednesday and will be involved again.
