WITH opportunities limited for him at present, teenage Bradford (Park Avenue) striker Rob Guilfoyle has gone out on a 28-day loan to Pontefract Collieries.

He had been on loan at Ponte's NPL East Division rivals Worksop Town, helping them up seventh in the table.

But Pontefract are in dire straits, and could do with Guilfoyle's help and goals, sitting second-bottom after 12 games.

He goes straight into their squad for today's crucial clash at home to Hebburn Town.

Avenue think a lot of former York City prospect Guilfoyle, having brought him in over the summer.

But with Luke Rawson, Oli Johnson and Adam Nowakowski ahead of him in the pecking order up front at present, these short-term loans at least give him the chance to get first team minutes.
