Guiseley will be looking to snap out of their recent slump when they host Colwyn Bay in Blue Square Bet North tomorrow night.

The Lions have dropped five points over their last two games but remain second in the table.

Steve Kittrick’s men could have got within two points of runaway leaders Chester had they won their games in hand but taking just one point from the last available six has severely damaged their title hopes.

Kittrick remains positive but Guiseley will be severely tested by a Colwyn Bay side who will still be frustrated by Saturday’s wasted journey to nearby Bradford Park Avenue.

That game was called off a little over an hour before scheduled kick-off.

Following Saturday’s 2-0 defeat at Vauxhall Motors, Kittrick said: “We could have played all day and not scored - their keeper didn’t have one shot to save. That won’t happen from us again.”

Guiseley now trail Chester by 16 points but have just three games in hand.

Elsewhere, Brighouse Town also lost the initiative in pursuit of the title in their division as they suffered a surprise home defeat in the Baris Northern Counties East League Premier Division.

Town can reclaim second place tomorrow if they beat mid-table Heanor Town but they would still be two points behind leaders Scarborough Athletic, while Bridlington Town, who they would leapfrog with a maximum, would have two games in hand on both of the top two.

A big Bradford derby is in prospect in the same division as Thackley host Liversedge in a re-arranged fixture.
