Guiseley midfielder Alex Purver expects tomorrow’s National League clash against Torquay United at Nethermoor to be another huge game.

Purver, who signed permanently for the club in the summer from Leeds United, was pleased with a return to the starting XI in the goalless draw with Tranmere Rovers on Tuesday night, but knows that the third-from-bottom Lions need to get their first win on the board as soon as possible.

He said: “It is another big game. I know it is early in the season but it is a really big game for us so I am looking forward to it. We want to win every game we can and Saturday is no different.

“Obviously we bought a few new players in, we are still getting used to the lads how different people play.

“It is not going to happen overnight but I think we are starting to get those few little relationships and combinations all over the pitch.”

Lions boss Adam Lockwood added: “Anyone who comes and watches this level of football knows you are in for a tough, tough game.

“You have to be right and on our game to stand a chance of getting results or points. They will be a good side I know that, we have to do things right and be on our game.”

Elsewhere in the National League, FC Halifax Town travel to Solihull Moors, while in National North, Harrogate Town play at Gainsborough Trinity and Bradford Park Avenue host FC United of Manchester.
