GUISELEY will create a piece of history on Sunday when they play in the second round of the FA Cup for the first time.

But while the club’s supporters get swept up by the romance of a tie which sees them visit Football League side Mansfield who both Paul Cox and his assistant Adam Murray used to manage, the Nethermoor bosses are more interested in a happy ending to a different story.

“I have had great moments in the FA Cup, I love its razzmatazz and its drama, said Cox.

“There was great emotion when we won the replay at Accrington, but everyone has to keep their feet on the floor.

“The goalposts haven’t change. My job is to keep Guiseley in the National League and build a base from which we can move this club forward. The priority for all of us is the National League and we mustn’t lose sight of that objective.

“Sunday is exciting for everybody connected with the club, but we cannot forget the fact that we need wins in the league.”

Cox admits that he was extremely frustrated by his team’s performance last Saturday when they lost 2-0 at home to Sutton United.
