Brackley on Saturday for Non-League Day

Guiseley manager Steve Kittrick is looking forward to the visit of Brackley Town on Saturday for a match which will also be marked as the northern showpiece for Non-League Day.

Kittrick said: “John (Brady’s) side are big lads and are very back to front. They’ll all be six foot two but we’ve had some good games against them. I thought last year when we went there we were the better team but they nicked it.

“We’ve got to win games, we’ve got to bed things in, next week (Brackley) is a good game to bounce back and get three points.”

Guiseley will hope for a return to winning ways after drawing 1-1 with Gloucester City away from home on Saturday, with Michael Potts scoring his first goal for the Lions.

Last season Brackley were defeated in the play-off final by FC Halifax Town, with Brady’s men beating Kittrick’s side home and away in the league.

Brackley have continued their impressive form and currently sit third in the table after gaining three wins out of their first five games. Although Guiseley are tenth, a win for the Lions on Saturday would put them level on points with their Northamptonshire visitors.

The match is kindly sponsored by Thorne Asset Finance.
