Guiseley return to Nethermoor on Tuesday night as Gateshead make the trip to West Yorkshire with kick-off at 7:45pm.
The wait for the first Lions win in 2018 continues after Saturday’s 2-1 defeat at Macclesfield Town after Rowan Liburd had given us the lead.
Tuesday night’s game is the first in a run of three consecutive home fixtures with Maidenhead the visitors on Saturday and we host AFC Fylde on 20th February.
The Heed come into the fixture off the back of a 2-1 home defeat to AFC Fylde but that is only their second loss in 2018 bringing an eight game unbeaten run in all competitions to an end.
Chris Bell spoke to Paul Cox after the trip to Moss Rose, the boss was pleased with the first half but frustrated with the overall performance from his squad.
“We came here and we looked comfortable, we scored a good goal. I thought we did really well, we have just had a long chat in the dressing room, it seems to be the same things.”
Something the boss has mentioned in recent weeks is game management, he felt this swung the game in the favour of the hosts on Saturday. “It is game management, we didn’t do the basics well for 90 minutes, that’s the thing that frustrates me.”
Cox did however feel that the sides were closely matched “I didn’t think there was much between the two sides for 50-60 minutes, when you are down there you have to be a bit more resolute. There were some good parts to our play today, we created some good chances.”
Looking at the run to the end of the campaign Paul said “The games are running out, there’s still 45 points to play for. We had this run down as a tough set of fixtures, we have got a lot of games in the final 15 that if we cut out the minor mistakes we have a chance of winning them.”
“We have got to be focused and dust ourselves down for Tuesday now and not feel sorry for ourselves.”
