Guiseley boss Steve Kittrick rues missed chances
Gloucester City 1 Guiseley 1
Guiseley took the lead at Gloucester and threatened to find top gear in a decent first-half display but they failed to hold on for a much-needed victory.
The point earned from a testing away fixture saw the Lions creep into the top ten in the Skrill North.
It has definitely not been the start Guiseley and their supporters had hoped for but, after just five games, there is a long way to go.
Michael Potts put the visitors in front when he fired a 19th-minute shot into the top corner after good work from Gavin Rothery.
However, the home side had started well and continued to create chances.
Guiseley settled and began to control the game. Glouc-ester had their fair share of possession but were not hurting the visitors in the final third.
They did put the ball in the net but Scott Wilson was offside when he poked it over the line.
With a little over 16 minutes remaining, the home side got their equaliser from the penalty spot after an error from Danny Ellis.
They came close to snatching a lead just two minutes later when Lewis Hogg’s free-kick drifted just wide.
The Lions finished strongly, looking for the winner, and they thought they had it just into time added on.
Substitute Adam Priestley netted but he was also offside.
Lions boss Steve Kittrick said: “I thought we should have been two or three up in the first half and then it’s a different conversation in the dressing room at half time. At 1-0 it’s never comfortable but we had more chances early doors in the second half.
“Gloucester did well but I should have gone 4-4-2 earlier. I wanted to but let myself get talked out of it. That won’t happen again.”
