On Saturday the Robins make the trip to West Yorkshire as they visit the Yorkshire Payments Stadium to take on Brighouse Town.

The last three results don’t show good reading for Robins fans, with 3 losses on the bounce, although it could be argued that the performances were far better than the results depict. Yet to get off the mark in 2023, this will be seen as a great opportunity to kick start 2023.

The hosts come into the tie in similar form, only picking up one point from their last three games, and were in midweek action when they traveled to South Tyneside, going down 0-1 to a own goal.

They find themselves sitting in 9th place, just 6 points ahead of the Robins, which shows just how tight it is and picking up a couple of wins can propel you up the table.

The reverse fixture saw the two teams play out a 0-0 stalemate.
