Guiseley made it four points from their last two National League home games after a 0-0 draw at home against Boreham Wood last night.

This was a game that affected both ends of the table with the Lions looking to climb out of the relegation places while Boreham Wood wanted to get into the play-off places.

Bruno Andrade had the first chance with the division’s leading scorer seeing his effort towards the top corner being well saved by Guiseley keeper Jonny Maxted.

The hosts who were aiming to make it three wins in a row in all competitions, had Lee Molyneux deliver a low cross that was cleared only as far as Kevan Hurst who fired just over from 20 yards out. While chances were at a premium, Tom Champion saw an effort go just wide, when he found a bit of space just outside the area.

The second half was a real case of both sides trying to get it forward but the defences were on top and quite comfortably.

As the game reached the final stages, Lee Molyneux saw his shot on the edge of the area force an acrobatic save by Wood keeper Grant Smith.

Lions boss Paul Cox said: “It was a bit of a strange game.

“We just didn’t seem to get going. We didn’t work their keeper enough but it is a clean sheet and four points from those two games is something we’d have taken.”

Harrogate Town drew 1-1 with Bradford Park Avenue in National League North.

Joe Leesley missed a third-minute penalty for Town, who eventually took the lead on 29 through Jack Emmett.

But former Guiseley player Adam Boyes equalised with a header, five minutes into the second half, from Nicky Clee’s cross.
