Guiseley set for Trinity test

By Tom Feaheny

Guiseley welcome Gainsborough Trinity to Nethermoor on Tuesday evening (7.45pm ko) aiming to continue the fine form that has moved them into the play-off positions.

During their last two matches Guiseley have scored eleven goals in a 6-1 win against AFC Telford and a 5-0 victory away at Vauxhall Motors.

The Lions are currently in the last play-off place but have a game in hand on some of the teams around them.

Although Guiseley will be facing a side struggling in the lower reaches of the Skrill North, manager Mark Bower believes Trinity will pose a stern test.

“It’s always tricky against Gainsborough wherever they are in the league. They have a lot of youth in the side and they are very energetic,” he said.

“I saw them against Bradford Park Avenue a couple of weeks ago and although they were soundly beaten they were very unlucky to have been beaten by such a scoreline, they caused a lot of problems we won’t underestimate them.”

With a number of the sides around them also playing on Tuesday, Guiseley know a victory will ensure they remain in the play-off places with games fast running out.

Midfielder Michael Potts, who came on as a substitute against Vauxhall Motors on Saturday, said the Lions are feeling good after a couple of big wins.

“There’s a lot of confidence, especially with AJ and Boyesy up front – and the confidence can definitely help us in the run in,” he told Tim Richards.

The last time these sides faced each other it was Wayne Brooksby and Gavin Rothery who made the difference in a 2-1 victory – Guiseley’s first win of the campaign.

Tuesday’s match sponsors are Fourways Coaches

Longstanding Guiseley supporter Tom Harvey will be carrying out a bucket collection at the game in aid of helping his young cousin and other autistic children attend Camp Puzzle Peace in America.
