Lions Welcome Nethermoor Return

The Lions are back at Nethermoor on Tuesday night with Curzon Ashton the visitors in this rearranged fixture, kick-off is at 7:45pm.

After postponements and two games on the road LS20 sees a Vanarama National League North fixture for the first time since 2nd March.

The Lions have lost the last four games 1-0 with the last win coming on New Year’s Day at Bradford (Park Avenue), after a tough spell of results Joint Manager Marcus Bignot has urged everyone to “stand side by side”.

Curzon Ashton meanwhile have also suffered two postponements but did defeat FC United of Manchester 3-1 to secure back to back home wins.

The clash between the two sides is the second this month with the The Nash the victors at the Tameside Stadium earlier on in March.

Speaking after the defeat at Hereford Bignot said “We are just on the wrong side of these scorelines, the performance was not good enough to win a game of football but it was certainly a performance which should not have lost the game, we should be going back up north with a point.”

“We are disappointed with the goal we conceded, it is definitely something we could have controlled and dealt with.”

“It is a disappointing day but results have gone our way so it is as we were but we cannot keep saying that, we have got a perfect opportunity to bounce back on Tuesday.”

Speaking of recent results and performances the Joint Manager added “I am a great believer in the harder you work the luckier you get, it will turn for us. Let’s learn from the lessons today, how we can be better to turn the performance into a win. Ultimately a result and three points is all that matters, there’s areas and ways we can be better and that is what we will look to improve on on Tuesday.”

Lewis Archer made his debut at Edgar Street and Marcus thinks he can be pleased with his performance “It was hard for him today, he has not had a lot of service, there was not anything for him to get to his ability. We know he is going to be a real big asset for us, it is up to the others to put the ball in the right areas for him to be in goal scoring positions and create chances.”

“Lewis can create goals himself and get himself into goal scoring opportunities but he has not played for an age, he can be pleased in a way but like everyone we are asking for more.”

Ahead of the visit of Curzon Ashton Bignot is looking for a good Lions turnout to back the players “To every supporter at Guiseley we will get through this, these moments will make us stronger. Let’s stand together side by side and have a real positive performance on and off the pitch and a real togetherness.”

“It is one we can reflect on and go we went there not so long ago and nine times out of ten we win that game of football, we have got to repeat that and make sure it is one of those nine type of performances that get you the three points.”

Tickets for the West Riding County Cup final will be on sale in the Club Shop priced at £8 adults and £4 concessions.
