Guiseley’s season is slowly gathering pace and they will be hoping to haul themselves into the top ten of the Skrill North table on Saturday at Gloucester City.

The Lions began with an opening-day defeat in front of their home supporters but have won two and drawn one since.

Gloucester have also won twice but have lost their other two league fixtures.

Following Bank Holiday Monday’s 1-0 win over Workington, thanks to substitute Jake Lawlor’s injury-time header, Lions boss Steve Kittrick hinted there could be changes to his starting line-up.

He said: “We have been good defensively but not too good going forward. There are definitely one or two players out of sorts.”

Guiseley have just missed out on promotion in the last two seasons, finishing second both times but being pipped in the play-offs.

Changes have been made to the squad, with some being snapped up by bigger clubs while some have had to make way.

Kittrick has drafted in some exciting young talent but could have an older head back on Saturday.

The manager said: “Andy Holdsworth had gastroenteritis and I told him to stay away last Monday.

“He felt he was over the worst and wanted to come along and give his support but you never know if it’s still contagious, so we played safe.

“Andy makes a big difference – he is a footballer. But where do you put him and do you change a winning team?

“The players have done well in the last two games and I told them they have earned the right to play.

“So it could be a case of where do you put Andy if he is ready to come back. I may change things, we will see.”

Holdsworth was due to train with the rest of the squad tonight.
