GUISELEY boss Mark Bower feels this will be a huge weekend for Vanarama Conference North, with clubs making sizeable moves up and down the table.

Currently sitting at the summit after three games, the former Bantams skipper is hoping his club don’t tumble with the Bank Holiday weekend having six points on offer over three days.

Bower said: “We have got to be pleased with the start we have had, especially with four first-team players sidelined with injury, but no one is getting carried away. If you lose a couple of games, all of a sudden nine points from 15 looks pretty average.

“This is a big weekend for clubs and a tough one. It’s always a testing time for the lads because they are not up to full speed yet and are still building up reserves.

“But it’s a time of the season that is welcome because of the points on offer, and for us it’s a chance to cement the good start we’ve made.”

Bower knows it will be difficult at AFC Fylde on Saturday and at home to Gainsborough Trinity on Monday.

“Fylde are an unknown quantity but you often find that teams that have come up have momentum and they are very used to winning games,” said Bower.

“They beat Brackley 4-0 in their first game, but we can go there with confidence after our own start.

“If we can play as well as we have so far and keep our organisation and commitment, then we have a chance of getting a result.”
