Goal-hungry Lions target third win on the spin

UP TO the business positions again in Vanarama North, Guiseley are seeking to end a fine week on a high note when they travel to Gloucester City.

Mark Bower’s men head to the south west, buoyed by successive victories over Gainsborough Trinity and Lowestoft and, as on Tuesday evening, the Lions will not require any motivation for the clash against Gloucester tomorrow.

Up to third place after the 2-1 win at Gainsborough, Guiseley are mindful of their hefty 4-1 home loss against Gloucester on August 30 and claiming a spot of revenge, just as they successfully achieved at The Northolme in midweek.

Goals were plundered by Adam Boyes and in-form Oli Johnson, with the former Norwich City man following up his impressive performance against Lowestoft with another choice display against the Lincolnshire outfit.

Gloucester are aiming to claim their second Yorkshire scalp in the space of a week after Harrogate Town’s mini-revival in a 1-0 verdict last Sunday. Simon Weaver’s troops have the opportunity to hit back tomorrow at home to Hyde United at the CNG Stadium.

Several new faces could make their home debuts having recently signed for the club.

They include former Leeds United winger Seb Carole, on the books of Town’s near-neighbours Knaresborough Town last season, and centre-back Luke Shiels.

Definitely out is Ashley Worsfold, who is injured, with Town also allowing striker Ryan Kendall to return to North Ferriby United earlier this week.

FC Halifax, who went down 1-0 at Grimsby Town on Tuesday evening, play host to fifth-placed Woking at the Shay tomorrow.

The Shaymen are down to sixth spot in the Vanarama Conference after their defeat at Blundell Park, but have the perfect opportunity to hit back in the next few weeks, with three of their next four games at home.
