Lions Extend Unbeaten Run To Five

Guiseley extended their unbeaten run to five as Andy Halls equaliser midway through the second half cancelled out Jordan Hulme’s opener to give the visitors a well-deserved share of the points at newly promoted Altrincham this afternoon.

The Lions starting eleven was the same as finished the victory against Nuneaton on Saturday with the exception of Jack Dyche who started in place of Tas Hussain.

The first half was an even affair with Guiseley shading the possession while Altrincham created the better openings.

Kayode Odejayi powered a header just wide for the visitors early on and Sean Williams shot over the angle for the home side.

Max Harrop should have put Altrincham ahead on the half hour as a cross from the left wing evaded everyone but he put his shot into the side netting with the goal gaping, leaving the teams level at the break.

The first goal came on 56 minutes when a corner from the right was headed back into the mix where the League’s leading scorer Jordan Hulme glanced the ball home.

The lead lasted just fifteen minutes as Andy Hall made his way into the visitors half before showing his shot shy strikers how it was done with a powerful daisy cutter from twenty five yards that fizzed past Elliott Wynne into the bottom corner.

Paul Clayton and Reece Thompson replaced Odejayi and Dyche in an effort to clinch the three points, the nearest they came being Cliff Moyo’s curling shot that was marginally wide.
