HARROGATE Town travel to Stalybridge Celtic on Tuesday night, for their first Blue Square North away match of the new season.

Town got their campaign off to a flyer on Saturday, beating visitors Altrincham 3-2 at the CNG Stadium, despite going down to ten men after Michael Tait was sent off.

Two Paul Brayson strikes plus a Laurie Wilson penalty earned Simon Weaver’s troops three points against their Cheshire visitors.

Stalybridge also made a winning start by two goals to one at Nuneaton Town.

Phil Marsh slammed in two goals from the spot.

Town should be in confident mood for the clash, as they beat Celtic home and away last season.

After Tuesday’s game they visit Hinckley on Saturday.
