Guiseley looking to sink teeth into Bloods
Guiseley consolidated second place in Blue Square Bet North with a midweek victory and even though they are not currently at their best they must fancy another three points on Saturday.
The Lions are in Greater Manchester to take on second-bottom Droylsden, who have been hammered 7-0 by Bradford Park Avenue and 5-0 by Altrincham – both at their Butchers Arms ground – in the last two games.
James Walshaw turned from villain to hero with two goals at Corby Town in Wednesday night’s nervy 3-2 win following his aberration in the previous game.
The striker was dismissed for kicking out at the opposing keeper when his side lost 2-0 at home to third-placed Brackley Town last Saturday.
Exasperated Guiseley boss Steve Kittrick is taking nothing for granted ahead of his side’s journey to the struggling Bloods.
“Wally answered his critics in the right way because he knows he did wrong against Brackley,” said Kittrick.
“That is all well and good but he will be available for this game and then be suspended for the next three. He has promised me 25 goals this season, so he had better get on with it when his ban is over.
“We go to Droylsden with the intention of getting another three points but I know we are not playing to our full potential at the minute and so do the players.
“Teams see us as a scalp because we are second in the league and were in the play-offs last season, so they won’t let us play our brand of football and we have to be a bit more professional.
“There is no doom and gloom though. It has been a good season overall and we need the supporters with us to make it an even better one.”
