Cambridge boss has high hopes for Guiseley
It was a quiet bus ride home for Guiseley’s players on Tuesday night after their gut-wrenching 1-0 FA Trophy exit at Cambridge United.
But after the pain of bowing out despite dominating territory, possess-ion and chances, some consolation for the Lions came via Cambridge manager Jez George.
Guiseley boss Steve Kittrick said: “He came up to me afterwards and said ‘see you next season’.”
The inference there was that George felt Guiseley have what it takes to be promoted.
Kittrick said: “I was proud of all 20 of the players who travelled, and Cambridge, who have only lost three home games this season, were lucky.
“The guy from The Non-League Paper said we had 80 per cent of the possession and 90 per cent of the territory.
“They had three chances and scored one goal and we had 17 chances and scored no goals.
“We also hit the bar, a post, had a shot cleared off the line and had some goalmouth scrambles.”
The only downside, result apart, was that Mark Bower injured a calf just before half-time and is set to be out for four to five weeks.
Guiseley are now at home to Eastwood Town (Saturday, league) and Farsley (Tuesday, County Cup).
