Old Boyes hoping to ruin Barrow's night

Wharfedale Observer: Adam Boyes could well face his old club Barrow for Guiseley tomorrow Adam Boyes could well face his old club Barrow for Guiseley tomorrow

Guiseley will be hoping tomorrow night’s fixture at Barrow gets the go ahead after Mark Bower’s men suffered yet another postponement in the Conference North at the weekend.

The frustration is running deep within the squad as the players have had to sit out five of their last six league games.

The Lions’ new signing Adam Boyes could be lining up against one of his former clubs, and both he and Danny Forrest had very prolific spells with Barrow.

The home side have Guiseley’s Phil Marsh on loan but he will not be allowed to face his parent club.

It could be an intriguing clash as Barrow are just five points above the relegation places, while the Lions face the same gap to the play-off zone.

However, the home side are in good form with four wins on the spin but Bower’s men are also on a roll - they are unbeaten in the last two months and have won four of six games in that spell.

Guiseley have a handful of games in hand on their promotion rivals and have played four fewer than tomorrow's hosts after all their recently-shelved fixtures.

Thackley were due to host near-neighbours Albion Sports in the Toolstation Northern Counties East League Premier Division but that derby fixture was called off today.

One of the floodlight pylons at Dennyfield was damaged during routine maintenance on Sunday.

Brighouse Town can capitalise on that postponement if they win at struggling Lincoln Moorlands Railway.

Three points would take Town up to fourth, above both Thackley and Albion, and they would still have three games in hand on both of their neighbours.

Lincoln are second from bottom with just seven points from their 31 games and a minus-138 goal difference, so Town are favourites to win.
