Shane Killick and Steve Mallory were the scorers for Harrogate who visit Guiseley for the return on New Year's Day

Defender Danny Hall was substituted at half-time with a hamstring injury which makes him a doubt for Saturday's home game with Gainsborough Trinity.

Manager Mark Bower said: "We deserved the three points, created the most chances, and stood up to their direct approach.

"They scrambled in a couple of goals from set pieces  but all in all I was pleased with how we defended.
"The win keeps the run going and you get into that winning habit. We are almost down to the bare bones but the lads keep going."
