Guiseley boss Steve Kittrick is seeking positive reaction
Guiseley boss Steve Kittrick will be looking for a reaction from his players tomorrow night when they travel to Gainsborough Trinity for their second league game of the new Skrill North season.
The Lions got a mauling at home on Saturday, suffering a shock 3-0 loss to Solihull Moors but the biggest surprise was the total lack of spark from Kittrick’s men.
Close-season signing Jameel Ible was handed the man of the match accolade even though he had conceded a penalty that led to one of the goals. However, candidates were sparse as the whole squad under performed.
Experienced skipper Andy Holdsworth and usually solid keeper Steve Drench were no better than youngsters Jake Scott (on loan from Barsley) and Michael Potts, who like Ible is a former York City player.
Gainsborough also lost their first game, 2-1 at Vauxhall Motors, so tomorrow's clash will be tense as both sides need to get off the mark.
Farsley, also looking for their first point in Evo-Stik Division One North, host Prescot Cables.
Centre back James Riley (gashed foot) is doubtful but club captain Rob O’Brien is available after serving the second of a two-game ban that saw him miss the last game of last season.
Brighouse Town are at home in the Toolstation Northern Counties East League Premier Division to Glasshoughton Welfare, and Town will be buoyant after progressing in the FA Cup at the weekend.
In Division One, Eccleshill United make the short journey to AFC Emley.
