Lions and Avenue in bore draw

Saturday’s West Yorkshire derby between Guiseley and Bradford Park Avenue ended goalless in a forgettable encounter at the Horsfall Stadium.

Neither side could break the deadlock in a game affected by the blustery conditions, although the Lions were able to pick up another point in their bid to reach the play-offs.

Guiseley had the best of the possession and came closest to breaking the deadlock when Adam Boyes tested John Danby early on.

Steven Drench then pulled off a good stop midway through the second period but those were the only occasions when either keeper was seriously tested.

The draw leaves the Lions in fifth place, needing two more wins to guarantee a play-off place from fixtures against Chorley, North Ferriby and Oxford City.
