Guiseley’s injury crisis has bit so deep that manager Steve Kittrick is set to finalise his side on Saturday morning for the home Blue Square Bet North clash against Gainsborough Trinity just hours later.

“I only had nine fully-fit players for Tuesday night’s West Riding County Cup semi-final against Farsley AFC, another two were 80 per cent fit and I only had one outfield sub,” said the Lions boss.

“I don’t know what my team is going to be for Saturday. I should know more today but I am not expecting to finalise my team until Saturday morning for what is a massive weekend.

“We will be facing one team who have been in the top five or six all season (Gainsborough) and are push-ing for the play-offs and another who are going for automatic promotion (Nuneaton away on Monday).”

Kittrick added: “I was glad that we had the game against Farsley on Tuesday as we put in a poor perfor-mance in losing 2-1 to Eastwood last Saturday. One or two players needed to look at themselves after that.”
