GUISELEY travel to last season’s beaten finalists Gateshead tonight for a re-arranged Buildbase FA Trophy first-round tie, knowing that a home game against Boreham Wood or Dartford awaits the winners.

The Lions were due to make the trip north at the weekend but the sub- zero temperatures put paid to that.

The Heed had arranged an early-morning pitch inspection at the International Stadium, and it was no surprise when Guiseley got the call informing them that the pitch was frozen.

The tie was immediately re-scheduled for tonight and it will be played to a finish, with extra-time and penalties if needed.

Lions boss Paul Cox and his opposite number Steve Watson had agreed that and got clearance from the FA before Saturday’s first attempt.

Fellow Vanarama National League outfit Boreham Wood and National League South leaders Dartford also play tonight, and that tie will also be concluded as it is a replay, the sides playing out a 1-1 draw at the weekend.

FC Halifax Town and Macclesfield Town will make a second attempt to play their tie after the pitch at The Shay was also frostbound on Saturday.

The Shaymen will be second favourites in a two-horse race as the Silkmen are currently leading the National League.

The winners of that tie will host Maidenhead United.

Tonight’s re-scheduled Trophy tie means that Paul Cox’s Lions have had to delay their West Riding County Cup quarter-final.

They were due to make the short trip to take on last season’s beaten finalists Tadcaster Albion tonight.

Guiseley put out a side made up of fringe first-team players and promising Academy graduates in the last round - a 6-0 win at Garforth Town.

Cox will no doubt play a similar side against the Brewers but some of those players will feature in tonight’s match-day squad, so the West Riding tie has been put back 24 hours and will be played tomorrow.
