Lions to face Brackley test

Guiseley host Brackley Town in the Blue Square Bet North on Saturday, and they will be looking to gain another three points towards their promotion push.

The game sees the second-placed Lions, buoyed after returning to winning ways on Saturday at Worcester City, take on the side just one slot below them.

Prior to that Guiseley had lost at Vauxhall Motors and drawn at home to Colwyn Bay, but a late James Walshaw strike secured three much-needed points in a 1-0 win.

Although this is the first time the sides have faced each other in the League, they did meet in the FA Trophy earlier this season, Guiseley coming out on top 3-1 thanks to a Kevin Holsgrove goal on top of penalties from Nicky Boshell and Gavin Rothery.

Following the game, Guiseley will travel to Corby Town on Wednesday 6th March before facing Droylsden the following Saturday at the Butcher’s Arms ground.

A week later they are back at Nethermoor to face Solihull Moors.

Admission on Saturday is just £10 for adults, £6 for concessions and £4 for 12-to-16 year-olds, and the kick-off is at 3 pm.
