Nethermoor awaits the visit of Nuneaton

Guiseley will be looking to maintain their impressive home form when Nuneaton Town pay them a visit tonight. The current league positions of the two sides suggest the game could be a spectacle to behold.

The two sides are separated by a solitary point in what is developing into one of the tightest league standings for years as we approach the halfway point of the season.

With six wins out of a possible eight on home turf, it is important that as many supporters as possible make their way down to Nethermoor Park to support the Lions tonight.

Nuneaton have already accumulated a solid 13 points on their travels this season, meaning they will make the journey to West Yorkshire fully confident that they can inflict Guiseley’s second home defeat of the campaign.

Lions’ Manager Steve Kittrick faces a future selection headache as the suspensions of two of key defenders will leave Guiseley very thin on the ground at the back. With red cards in the last two games, discipline could well play a key role in deciding the outcome of tonight’s encounter.

Gavin Rothery looks set to regain full fitness, having appeared off the bench in the draw against Stalybridge on Saturday, with Lee Ellington expected to return to the team in a reshuffle of the forward line. There would be no better time for new signing Kevin Gall to open his goalscoring account for the Lions, having failed to convert the chances that have come his way thus far.

A win would open up a four-point gap between Guiseley and the Boro, with the Nethermoor men having a game in hand over second-placed Stalybridge Celtic going into this weekend’s round of fixtures.
