Young Lions go close

Given the attractive home friendly against Doncaster Rovers at Nethermoor on Saturday Guiseley chose to send their Academy side to face Yorkhire Amateurs at Bracken Edge this evening .

The youngsters took some time to adjust to the physical nature of the game but once they had, and especially in the second half, they give a good account of themselves and with more clinical final balls could have tested their hosts resolve.

The home side took the lead on 21 minutes when a quick one-two left their striker with only the Lions keeper to beat.

Three minutes later the Ammers doubled their lead as a free kick just outside the area found its way through the defensive wall past the keeper and into the far corner.

With 14 minutes remaining the visitors pulled one back as Albert Ibrahimi powered home a header from a corner.

The young Lionsthen had a trio of chances but the final ball was always too near the home keeper and the opportunities were lost.
