Farsley Celtic 0

Guiseley 1

GUISELEY'S wrapped up an encouraging festive period with victory over Farsley Celtic in Vanarama National League North on New Year's Day.

Chris Sang's goal after 67 minutes was the difference between the two sides in this derby, as Marcus Bignot and Russ O'Neill's side continued their pursuit of a play-off place.

A long throw from Brad Nicholson was sent in and Sang struck home to give the travelling Guiseley fans a happy start to the new decade.

After wins over York City and Farsley Celtic, on Saturday and Boxing Day respectively, the Nethermoor side made it three wins in a row over Christmas in the return derby with Farsley.

Guiseley had the first decent chance of the game after 14 minutes. Chris Sang's shot went just wide of the top corner.

The Lions continued to roar forward when Aram Soleman won a free-kick in line with home side's penalty area, which came to nothing as the game finished goalless at the break.

The only incident of a sluggish opening to the second half saw a booking for Guiseley's Andrai Jones on 57 minutes in front of a 1,010-strong crowd at the Citadel.

But Sang soon struck and Guiseley managed to hang on for the three points.

The Lions now turn their attention to the home league clash with Chester on Saturday (3pm kick-off).
