Mark Bower says he is only focused on Bradford (Park Avenue’s) results and performances and expects further twists and turns in their play-off battle, the Telegraph & Argus report.

Avenue hope to build on a 2-1 midweek win over Leamington as they face an away double header in Vanarama National league North when they first travel to third-from-bottom Ashton United tomorrow, followed by a trip to third-placed Spennymoor Town next Tuesday.

Only one point separates fourth to seventh place in the table as the play-off picture looks like going right to the wire. Avenue are in a good position, after they moved up to fifth on 54 points following Tuesday’s triumph.

Bower says his side’s sole focus is on tomorrow’s clash which he sees as a tricky test despite his opponent’s lowly league position.

He said: “Ashton are more than capable of causing teams problems. They beat Chorley a couple of weeks ago.

“Tomorrow’s game is the priority and the focus for us. They are looking to recover from a couple of defeats and will be looking to pick up some points.

“Pretty much everyone in the league have something to play for, down to seventh place for the play-offs, they still have a chance.”
