A TOPSY-TURVY game saw Brighouse Town’s bad start to the Northern Premier League North West Division season continue, as they lost 4-3 at home to Dunston.

Dunston were already top of the league going into last night’s clash, but Brig stunned them with a goal after just two minutes.

A corner was headed back across goal, and James Hurtley fired home from close range.

But Town’s lead didn’t last long. They conceded a penalty six minutes into the game, which was converted by Terry Galbraith, with Michael Hall putting Dunston in front soon after.

When Galbraith netted his second, and Dunston’s third, on 39 minutes, the game looked to be over as a contest.

But a pair of substitutions worked wonders for Brighouse.

They brought on former Albion Sports forward Alhassane Keita and ex-Silsden striker Laurence Sorhaindo with just under half an hour left, and it did not take either of them long to make their mark.

On 72 minutes, Keita got past two defenders down the left, before firing home at the near post.

And Sorhaindo joined him on the scoresheet just two minutes later. Kurt Harris laid the ball off on the edge of the box, and Sorhaindo smashed it home with glee.

Sadly for Brig, they were not on level terms for long, with Dunston’s Connor Bell netting an 80th minute winner.

The result leaves Town on just one point from their opening five league games.

But it is not all bad news for the club, as they confirmed the signing of defender Darius Smith from Mickleover. He made his debut in last night’s clash.
