OJ: We have work still to do

Oli Johnson is taking nothing for granted in the Skrill North play-off semi-final against North Ferriby United, having scoring the second goal in Wednesday’s 2-0 first-leg win.

The former Norwich City man added to Adam Boyes’ opener early in the second half to put the game beyond the visitors and edge the Lions into the driving seat ahead of Saturday’s second leg.

Despite forming a dangerous partnership with Boyes and the two-goal advantage, Johnson says the tie is far from over and explained that the squad are in no mood to rest on their laurels.

“It’s a good result for us but it is a job half done, now we have to see it out during the second leg,” he told Tom Feaheny.

“I’m delighted to get the goal – recently it hasn’t been going in for me. I’ve had a few chances lately but hopefully now I can kick on and get a few more.”

Johnson played a part in both goals with his flick-on allowing Boyes to race in and score the opener before he tricked his way down the wing and lobbed Adam Nicklin for the second.

He paid tribute to strike partner Boyes, who has been a key fixture in the Lions’ strong form of late, and said the pair are confident of building on Guiseley’s first-leg advantage.

“Boyesy is really easy to play with, even when he played with AJ you could see that,” Johnson continued.

“The more games we play together hopefully we can improve.

“They (Ferriby) will be on the front foot from the start, trying to overturn the deficit, but we are confident.”
