Andy wants more of the same after Leamington win

With 15 games remaining, Andy Holdsworth believes every game in now crucial for the Lions in their bid for a play-off place.

Guiseley moved 11th on Tuesday with a 2-1 win over Leamington as goals from Danny Ellis and Kevin Holsgrove gave Mark Bower’s side their first home win of 2014.

It was only the second time that Guiseley have played at Nethermoor since the New Year and, despite the pitch conditions not favouring the Lions’ passing game, Holdsworth believes they have a slight advantage with Vauxhall Motors and Stockport County their next visitors to Nethermoor on Saturday and Tuesday respectively.

“I think every game we go in to now is massive for us. We’re chasing,” he told Micky Ruddle.

“Obviously we are on home soil and we know how it is. In the second-half (on Tuesday) we didn’t play as well as we maybe could have done and with the pitch cutting up and it’s boggy in lots of areas, it’s hard for us to get the ball down and pass it.

“But you have to play to the conditions and we ground out a 2-1 win.”

Saturday sees the start of a busy fixture period for the Lions as they seek to make their games in hand count and book a play-off spot for the fourth season running.

After picking up four points on the road at Brackley and Histon, the skipper is eager for Guiseley to make the most of home advantage in their remaining fixtures.

“In the last couple of weeks it seems like we have got air miles. You could say jet-lagged because it’s been that far,” he added.

“We’re back on home soil and we have got to keep winning, that’s all we’ve got to do. Set our stall out and just keeping winning and see how far that gets us.”

The match sponsors for Saturday’s game against Vauxhall Motors are Blacks Solicitors.
