Mix of experience and youth turns things around for Guiseley
Guiseley went some way to atoning for their opening-day horror show in the Skrill North with a victory on the road in midweek, and they will be looking to build on their points total at Colwyn Bay on Saturday.
Former Chelsea defender Frank Sinclair’s Welsh outfit have not had the best start to the new campaign.
Colwyn Bay are one of five club’s in the division that have yet to register a point following two defeats on the trot.
After the Lions’ 2-1 win at Gainsborough Trinity on Tuesday, Steve Kittrick said: “We changed the system and the players worked hard - that is what you have to do to win football matches.
“We created good chances. We scored twice and hit the woodwork twice. It could have been 4-0 because we should never have allowed ourselves to concede that late goal.
“But after Saturday (3-0 defeat at home to Solihull Moors) it was fantastic to see the desire from the players to put it right. It would have been nice to have a bigger win but 2-1 was a great result.”
Close-season signing Spencer Harris is now available. The Lions have been awaiting international clearance after the player’s spell in Australia, and Kittrick has no fresh injury concerns after the win at Trinity.
“Some of the younger players we signed have not played at this level before so we went for experience in midweek,” added the boss.
“But players like Jake Scott, James Burgess, Adam Priestley and Craig Hobson need to be playing and have done well, so they will be involved.”
