Derby sees Brighouse keep second-half clean-sheet against United

Two first half goals from Barnies United’s Andy Holmes gave his side the win in the C-Grade clash with club mates Brighouse, with defender Mick Carpenter claiming the assist for the second.

With United feeling the absence of key attackers on the day, Brighouse dug deep and continued to show signs of improvement.

United defender, Mick Flynn, returned to the side after international duties but his inspirational performance failed to deliver second half goals.

With United's elderly legs tiring as the game went on, the sturdy Brighouse defence held out in the second half.

The side's forwards were unlucky not to make it onto the scoresheet, despite a series of attacking raids.
