Here we are, a week out from Christmas and we all get a welcome present. Reds are playing football again Our disrupted league campaign resumes with a trip to Brighouse. I understand this is one of five fixtures happening this weekend. Rams are not playing which means a Reds victory would see us take over at the top of the league.
We have actually played three cup fixtures since our last outing in the league which was a win at Ossett Utd on 21 October.
Brighouse are 18th with 4 points from 7 games. Reds are 2nd with 18 points from 8 games.
Brighouse at home 1-1-3 Reds away 2-2-0
Recent Brighouse results: 31 Oct Brighouse 0-2 Buxton (FAT3QR) 24 Oct Brighouse 2-0 Pontefract 20 Oct Pickering Town 1-0 Brighouse 17 Oct Kendal 1-0 Brighouse (FAT2QR) (Kendal removed from competition and Brighouse reinstated) 12 Oct Brighouse 3-4 Dunston 10 Oct Brighouse 2-5 City of Liverpool 5 Oct Brighouse 3-3 Runcorn
Brighouse overall since 1 Oct 1-1-5 Reds overall since 1 Oct 7-0-1
Almost Christmas and Reds are one of three teams who are undefeated in the league. We won our previous 5 league fixtures on the bounce before the season was suspended. Our only outing since then was the FAT defeat at Nantwich on 8 Dec.
Form is again difficult to figure with the significant disruption. Here's hoping we are top of the league at Christmas after this match. Come on you Reds.
