GUISELEY will be looking to put their "chances into the back of the net" as they aim to getting back to winning ways this Saturday when they play Curzon Ashton at Nethermoor.

After both clubs saw their matches postponed at the weekend the two sides prepare to face each other once again.

In a close contest a week last Monday, Curzon were 1-0 victors when Lewis Reilly struck midway through the first half.

It marked the third consecutive 1-0 loss for joint managers' Marcus Bignot and Russ O’Neill’s side, but it was a much improved performance by the Lions in Greater Manchester.

"It was a good performance, and we didn't get what we deserved," said O'Neill. "We just need to make sure when we create chances to put them in the back of the net to come out on the right side of the result.

"We under no illusions though, as this will be a completely different game."

Curzon Ashton have been in good form since the start of 2019 only tasting defeat twice, drawing once and winning eight times in all competitions.

Bignot was pleased with the improvement in the performance at Curzon last time out.

Bignot added: “To have a zero in the for column is hard to take but there was loads of positives, the performance, the goal scoring opportunities we created and the football we played.”

“The away supporters were clapping us off at the end, it shows every man put in a really good performance, you can see the football we can play. We didn’t deserve to be on the losing end with that performance.

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

New loan signing Lewis Archer, from Hednesford Town, will be in line to make his Lions debut on Saturday.

The highly rated 20-year-old striker, who is on loan until the end of the season, has previously attracted interest from Championship side West Bromwich Albion, who invited him for a trial earlier this season.

"Lewis has scored goals in the league below us," said Guiseley joint manager Russ O'Neill. "He's really quick and has an eye a goal."

Niall Heaton, who was withdrawn with a head injury just three minutes into the last Curzon Ashton game, could be a doubt going into this clash.

"It'll be touch and go for Niall for the weekend," added O'Neill.

In other news at the club, Akeel Francis and Kwame Boateng have both signed dual registration agreements.

Francis arrived at Nethermoor last month and will now link up with academy graduate Luke Hogg at Grantham Town, who has just started a loan spell there.

Boateng has joined Farsley Celtic.

In addition, goalkeeper Joe Green has signed for Gainsborough Trinity on loan.

The shot stopper will link up with the Lincolnshire side until the end of the season.

Trinity currently sit in fifth place in the Evo-Stik Premier Division.

Signed from Scarborough Athletic at the beginning of the 2017/18 campaign Joe has made 44 appearances for The Lions so far.

Green last featured for Guiseley against Barnoldswick Town last month when he was subbed on at half-time.
