Guiseley close gap on leaders Chester after hitting back to win
9:23am Wednesday 9th January 2013 in Sport
Guiseley 2, Corby Town 1
Guiseley hit back from a goal down as they earned a narrow home win against lowly Corby to cut Chester’s lead at the Blue Square Bet North summit – overnight at least.
The Lions consolidated second place thanks to their victory, which could have been by a much bigger margin as they found the visiting keeper in good form and were also thwarted by the woodwork.
Corby striker Josh Moreman netted the opening goal just after the half-hour mark and Guiseley could not find an equaliser before the break.
James Walshaw finally levelled just after the hour before Josh Wilson, who was denied twice by Corby’s keeper in the first half, struck the winner 11 minutes from time.
Guiseley are now ten points behind Chester with two games in hand, although the leaders play tonight.
