GUISELEY will be hoping home comforts can help them put an end to their dismal five-game losing run and claw back vital ground in the National League survival battle.

The Lions host three home matches in a week, with Gateshead the visitors to Nethermoor tonight (7.45pm) before Maidenhead (Saturday) and AFC Fylde (next Tuesday) both make trips to West Yorkshire.

Guiseley are currently rock bottom of the National League and are nine points from safety, with their last victory coming back at Chester on Boxing Day and boss Paul Cox is well aware that his side have to start chalking up the victories soon.

He said: “The games are running out but there’s still 45 points to play for. We had this run down as a tough set of fixtures. We have got a lot of games in the final 15 that if we cut out the minor mistakes we have a chance of winning them.

“We have got to be focused and dust ourselves down for Tuesday now and not feel sorry for ourselves.”

Opponents Gateshead currently sit 15th in the table following Saturday’s 2-1 home defeat to AFC Fylde which brought an end to their impressive eight-game unbeaten run.
