After Tuesday’s emphatic 6-1 win over AFC Telford, midfielder and assistant manager Danny Boshell was delighted with the reaction of his side following the disappointment of the weekend.
The result saw Guiseley move into the play-offs just days after missing out due to a frustrating 3-3 draw against Oxford City.
However, Bosh was pleased with the way the Lions reacted to Saturday’s draw and was full of praise for man-of-the-match Gavin Rothery, who scored twice and proved a constant threat against high-flying Telford.
“I think we got a reaction from the lads after Saturday, where we slipped up. Myself and Mark asked the lads to put in a performance and we certainly got it,” he told Tom Feaheny.
“The two centre-halves were excellent as was Drenchy and then you have to look at Gav (Rothery). The last two games have been the Gav we want, so I think he probably just edged it.”
Looking ahead to Saturday’s trip to Vauxhall Motors, the assistant warned of taking the game lightly but insisted confidence is high in the dressing room after Tuesday’s win.
“There are no easy games, but if we approach it the right way, we know we are looking to go to Vauxhall and get a result,” he added.
“We are confident, we are going on a good run where we are not losing and we were fifteen games unbeaten before the weather kicked in.
“We know on our day we are as good as anyone that is in this league.”
Winger Wayne Brooksby also highlighted team-mate Rothery as being the danger man on Tuesday – describing him as “different class” – and said such an impressive team performance had been in the offing.
“I thought it was the perfect performance. We could have kept a clean sheet if we were being really picky, but we could not have asked for much more really,” he told Micky Ruddle.
“I think we’ve been due to give someone a good hiding because we have been really playing well recently.”
