Lions succumb to league leaders

The Lions faced big spending Forest Green at the New Lawn this afternoon and were soundly beaten as Rovers registered a three nil win.

Darren Carter bagged the opener after twenty minutes when he curlede a shot beyond Dan Atkinson.

Guiseley battled away without making too much headway and Christian Doidge effectively sealed the game for the home side five minutes into the second half when he turned his marker and fired home.

Any hopes of a Lions comeback were extinguished on the hour when Jake Lawlor turned a Daniel Wishart cross into his own net.

Liam Noble also hit the post late on as Rovers returned to the top of the table..
