GUISELEY joint manager Marcus Bignot is calling for his team to use Monday's positive performance to get a result at high-flying Spennymoor Town this Saturday.

The Lions are coming off two 1-0 losses, one against Southport at Nethermoor last Saturday and another at Curzon Ashton on Monday night.

"It was a real positive performance," Bignot said about the Curzon Ashton match. "The only negative was the result, although we know that's more important.

"Performances like that over the next nine games will get us the results we need."

Bignot said young Curtis Morrison put in a good performance, alongside debuts for Guiseley Academy's18-year-old striker Aleks Starchenko, and new signing Dylan Barkers, an 18-year-old midfielder from the academy as Bignot's former club Solihull Moors.

"They give us some youth, enthusiasm and pace," said Bignot, who pleased with his team's effort on Monday.

"The boys gave us everything," he said. "We were a lot better in possession than of late and there was some real purpose in creating goal-scoring opportunities."

Bignot was disappointed with the decision to disallow Morrison's goal after 16 minutes, but added: "We hope a decision goes our way on Saturday".

Going into this Saturday's away game against third placed Spennymoor Town, Bignot is hoping that Niall Heaton, who had to go off on Monday after a clash of heads, will be fit.

"We'll assess him on Thursday. We've been decimated by injuries this season, and never been able to call upon a full fit team.

"Spennymoor Town will be a big test for us. They are a physical and technical team who are going for automatic promotion this season.

"We've going to make it difficult for them, and this will be an opportunity for us to put some points on the board."
