Vixens take on Chester-le-Street at home

Guiseley Vixens return home this Sunday as they welcome third-placed Chester-le-Street to Nethermoor Park.

The Vixens are looking for one of their two wins and a draw which would see them win the league title but it will be a tough task as Chester-le-Street have lost just one game since Christmas.

This will be the first of the back to back games with Chester-le-Street after the previous fixture was postponed. 

Manager Kyle OReilly said: We’re feeling focused. From the beginning of the season we’ve had our goal and have worked hard each week to put the points on the board and with six games left it’s still the same mentality, keep performing and keep looking to build that points total.

Chester-le-Street are a well-organised outfit and very potent in the forward areas. They’ll definitely be one of the tougher tests we’ve faced this season but these are the games we relish, we want to be tested, and in ultra-competitive games, that’s what footballs all about for both players and coaches.

“They have played well all season to be fair to them. They went to a resolute Brighouse with 10 players and managed a 2-2 draw and have taken points off of our title rivals also, so the warning signs are there for us, we have to bring our best it’s that simple.

The game will kick-off at 2pm on Sunday at Nethermoor Park. Entry is £3, £1 concessions and free to Guiseley Season Ticket holders.
