Lions humbled at Maidenhead

Maidenhead cruised to victory over Guiseley at York Road to extend the visitors’ winless run to eight games.

Ryan Upward kick-started the hosts’ first-half rout by heading in from close range after three minutes, before Harry Pritchard curled one home just two minutes later.

After a brief salvo from the visitors, which saw Reece Thompson and John Rooney both go close, James Comley made it 3-0 with a superb lobbed strike in the 35th minute and it could have been even worse for Guiseley as Adrian Clifton sent a header against a post just before the break.

With the job done the hosts eased off in the second half and Guiseley were unable to mount a fightback as manager Paul Cox suffered his first defeat in charge after four successive draws.
