Lions look to bounce back against Bishop’s Stortford

Guiseley host Bishop’s Stortford this Saturday, hoping to get back to winning ways after defeat at Chester last week.

Manager Steve Kittrick will be hoping his side can resume normal service after last week’s disappointing performance, but the Lions will have their work cut out against a side who won both encounters last season.

The Lions lost 4-1 away from home and 1-0 at Nethermoor, the latter confirming the end of their title push, but Steve and his men will be looking to exact revenge.

Guiseley currently sit in third with an impressive goal difference, and have won every home game in the Blue Square Bet North this season.

Recently called-up England ‘C’ trio defender Simon Ainge, midfielder Stephen Brogan and striker Josh Wilson will all be hoping to continue their impressive form for the club with starts against Bishop’s Stortford.

Stortford, who last season ended the season in 10th, have seen mixed results this season with two wins, one draw and three losses.
