SETTING THE SCENE
Moors face the third of four games in the space of 11 days as they welcome Guiseley to The Brewery Field.
Glen Taylor’s penalty five minutes from time on Tuesday evening rescued a point for Moors after Southport’s Jack Sampson had given the Sandgrounders the lead with nine minutes to play.
That goal could prove to be crucial as the need for points becomes even greater with only 10 games remaining in the season, especially when Stockport County won again to climb to the summit of the table.
Visitors Guiseley are currently one place and three points above the relegation zone having gone 12 games without a win since a 2-1 victory at Bradford (Park Avenue) on New Year’s Day.
Whilst many of those losses have been narrow, the Lions will be pointing towards their high number of draws as another issue. They have been involved in 15 stalemates in 2018/19, more than any other side.
The two sides played out a 1-1 draw at Nethermoor Park in November, a game which was played immediately after the Lions brilliant 4-3 win over Cambridge United in the First Round of the FA Cup.
- Guiseley are currently on a 12-game winless streak since a 2-1 win at Bradford (Park Avenue) on New Year’s Day, drawing six and losing six since.
- Five of The Lions’ six defeats have been by a single goal, with four of those score lines ending 1-0.
- They have recorded the most draws of any side in the division in 2018/19 (15).
- Spennymoor’s draw with Southport was the first time they have failed to win in the league at home since a 2-2 draw with Blyth Spartans New Year’s Day.
- Glen Taylor’s penalty against Southport means the striker has scored in seven of Moors’ 13 games in all competitions this calendar year and is the first player to reach the 20-goal mark in the National League North in 2018/19.
- Guiseley have conceded 22 fewer goals than the side directly below them, Ashton United, but are just three points better off.
LAST TIME WE MET
We got the views of Guiseley media man, Adam Bridson, to get the latest news and thoughts in and around the club.
Buy our match day programme to read the full interview with Adam!
How would you evaluate your season so far?
“I think we got off to a good start and had an excellent run in the Emirates FA Cup. Unfortunately, results have tailed off lately but after a big overhaul in the summer in terms of playing staff and a new management team hopefully we can secure survival.”
Which players have impressed you this season and who should we look out for?
“Cliff Moyo has had an excellent season at right back and has been solid for us, Rowan Liburd is our top scorer and a valuable asset to the side. Then you have Will Hatfield who has been with us for a few years now alongside Alex Purver.”
You begin the day three points above the relegation zone, with your last win coming on New Years’ Day against Bradford (Park Avenue). Do you think your performances have deserved more this year?
“There are some games we have deserved to get more points that we did, Monday night at Curzon Ashton is a prime example of this. We just haven’t been able to finish the chances off we are creating at times but hopefully that will come one day.”
What are your memories of playing against Spennymoor Town?
“I have been supporting the club for around 14 years now and in that time, we haven’t come up against each other. There are a lot of our supporters who remember trips to Spennymoor Town though and mention how hard a place it is to go to. The game at Nethermoor earlier on in the season was a close game and one I felt we were unlucky to draw.”
