Brown has come close a couple of times - and he will be looking for a goal tonight against Manchester Storm, after coach Paul Thompson decided against releasing him to farm team Blackburn Hawks.

Brown has energy, pace and awareness as well as an offensive instinct that has already seen him collect two 2 assists in the eight games he has dressed for the club this season.
