GUISELEY will be hoping the added motivation of a Yorkshire derby will help them finally put an end to their winless run when York City visit Nethermoor tonight, kick-off 7.45pm.

Adam Lockwood’s Lions are currently bottom of the National League with only three points to their name and a full 10 points from safety.

But their North Yorkshire opponents have also endured a season of struggle thus far and are currently hovering just above the relegation zone themselves.

Meanwhile, the Lions have been handed a difficult trip to Lincoln City in the FA Cup fourth qualifying round.

The tie will take place on the October 15 at Sincil Bank with a 3pm kick-off.

Harrogate Town and FC United of Manchester face off for a third time this season tonight to determine who will take on FC Halifax Town in the FA Cup fourth qualifying round.

Saturday’s meeting at Broadhurst Park produced a classic cup encounter as Joe Colbeck’s 96th-minute equaliser earned Town a 3-3 draw to set up tonight’s clash.

Simon Weaver’s men have scored 14 goals in the last four fixtures between the clubs.

Town will be without Dominic Knowles tonight and for the foreseeable future, as the striker fractured his foot at FC United and he joins Ben Parker and Lloyd Kerry on the sidelines.
