Guiseley gunning for home win

Mark Bower is keen to see his Guiseley team change their luck in front of goal ahead of the visit of Woking in the Vanarama National League this Saturday.

Last weekend’s draw at Torquay United was a familiar tale for the Lions as they saw several opportunities go begging in front of goal and were forced to settle for a point.

Guiseley took a deserved lead midway through the first half when Liam Dickinson tucked away a penalty but conceded shortly after and were unable to convert several chances to claim the win.

Saturday’s opponents Woking have shrugged off long-term injuries to key men Scott Rendell and Ismail Yakubu to start the campaign impressively and currently find themselves third in the National League.

Despite a strong start to the season, the Cards succumbed to their second league defeat last time out, losing 2-1 away at Macclesfield Town.

Hoping to inflict another defeat on Woking, Bower believes the Lions’ fortunes in front of goal will change soon.

“Woking is another difficult one,” he said.

“We’ve had a couple of indifferent results at home but we’ve taken a lot of heart from the away performances, and even the Gateshead performance.

“We’ve created a lot of chances and if we can do that it will come. It’s just that little stroke of luck that’s needed that will be that difference between drawing, as we did against Torquay, and winning the game.”
