Guiseley boss Steve Kittrick believes his side are over their late-season blip thanks to back-to-back victories and they will be aiming to make it nine points from nine when Solihull Moors visit Nethermoor on Saturday.

The Lions are 16 points off the summit with just two games in hand but are nine clear of third-placed Brackley Town.

With just 11 Blue Square Bet North fixtures remaining, it is very much the business end of the campaign and Guiseley have to maximise their points potential.

Kittrick said: “For us to catch Chester they would have to lose four games, and they have only lost one all season so far.

It is getting more remote but we can’t do any more than keep the pressure on them, which we will try to do.”

The victories at Corby Town and Droylsden brought no new injury concerns but Kittrick, who watched Altrincham at home to Soilhull on Wednesday, will be without two players.

“There are no injuries in the squad - everyone is fine,” added the manager.

“But Wally (striker James Walshaw) and Aaron (Hardy – full back) both begin suspensions.

"Wally has three games but Wayne Brooksby comes back into contention and Aaron will miss this and Tuesday against Altrincham.

“I was pleased with the two wins, even though we are not playing the fluent football we did early season. I would like to think that the run of poor form is behind us now.

“We haven’t lost many this season but it just proves what a tough division this is because we could finish with 100 points and still miss out on automatic promotion, which is unheard of in football.”

The Lions go into this weekend with 72 points on the board and 33 to play for.
