DALTON will be hoping to put a run of three Pennine League Division One defeats behind them when they host Brighouse Rangers at Kelland Park tomorrow (2pm kick-off).

The home side are missing four players from the team who lost 22-0 at second-placed Illingworth last weekend, with Jonathan Walsh and Ryan Baines having work commitments, and Rob Bamber and Scott Paisley unavailable.

However, a big boost for Dalton sees former Barrow Raiders man Adam Nicholson returning to the club. He will play alongside Harry Foster, a recent signing from Bamber Bridge who has just moved to the area.

The trio of Matty Bolton, Jamie Southward and Adam Langhorn should help bolster a Dalton pack who have been struggling for size in recent weeks as they look for revenge for a 28-18 defeat at Rangers.
