Guiseley ensured themselves a place in the Blue Square Bet North Division play-offs with a point at Stalybridge Celtic last night but they still want to secure second place.

The Lions are currently in the runners-up spot and need just six points from their remaining five games to claim it for a second season on the trot.

They begin the quest for those two wins tomorrow night when they host Altrincham.

However, after losing last Saturday at third-placed Brackley Town and then being held to a draw at Stalybridge, the Lions will not be relishing a visit from Lee Sinnott’s promotion-chasing Altrincham.

The Cheshire side are fourth and are hungry for more points to book themselves a place in the end-of- season extras.

Sinnott’s men are ten points adrift of Brackley but have two games in hand so have not given up on third spot.

FC Halifax Town are just one point behind former Bantam Sinbad’s Altincham and they, in turn, have two games in hand on them.

In fact the Shaymen are the main threat to Guiseley’s second spot as they have played fewer games than any of their top-eight rivals.

Halifax still have eight games to play and they host struggling Corby Town tomorrow night.

The visitors to The Shay are fourth from bottom with just three games remaining.
