GUISELEY played out an absorbing 0-0 draw with fellow National League North high-flyers York City at Nethermoor on Tuesday, and joint-manager Russ O'Neill said his players need to perform at that level when they visit Chester on Saturday.

After the game, O'Neill said: "I don't know how it was 0-0. It was a fantastic spectacle for Conference North level of football.

"We feel disappointed not to have won but I'm sure they'll feel they've had a few chances too. It's the best York side I've seen for a few years and we matched them.

"We stepped up another gear in the second half. It's a testament to our lads given that we're part time and they're full time."

It does not get any easier for the Lions, with third-placed Chester likely to provide an equally tough test.

O'Neill said: "I watched them at Curzon Ashton the other night and I was really impressed. I said to the lads when they were laid on the floor at the end tonight that they'd better get ready to go again because it'll be no different on Saturday."
