GUISELEY boss Marcus Bignot admits he will take a win by whatever means in the FA Cup first round this weekend.

His Lions side host League Two Cambridge on Sunday (kick-off 12.45pm) when they will make club history after reaching the first round proper of the knockout competition for consecutive seasons for the first time.

Since the cup draw was made, Joe Dunne's U’s have enjoyed a purple patch and are now unbeaten in four, having won their last three without conceding, moving themselves seven points above the bottom two in 19th place.

But Guiseley go into this clash on a poor run in front of goal, scoring only once in their last four Vanarama League North games.

These included their last two away dates, a goalless draw at Darlington last Saturday, followed by a 1-0 defeat at Ashton United on Tuesday night.

Bignot said: "It's cup football. The league is judged over 42 performances and you hope to win more than you lose over a season. But in cup football, you don't have to play well. It can be one chance, one bit of luck that sends you through.

"In cup football you don't have to play well. We are creating lots of chances and it is a good opportunity to get into the second round. We have to take it.

"It's a one-off game, we have to find a way to win.

"Being at home on Sunday is an advantage. Playing on a Sunday is something that we are not used to, an earlier kick-off time is something we are not used to.

"Playing at home is something we are very used to and that will help.

"Our supporters are key with their vocal support for us."

Bignot says he is not overly concerned by his goal-shy side's recent form.

He said: "It just goes to show how cruel football can be sometimes.

"Our performances have warranted six points from the last two games. We have created enough chances too. It is the hardest thing in football to score goals.

"We created enough chances to win both of our last two league games comfortably. We will look at all of the elements to help the group. We are going along in the right manner."

To mark Remembrance Sunday, a minute's silence will be held prior to kick-off. The teams will toss up with a specially minted coin to mark the end of First World War hostilities a century ago.

This is not an all-ticket game but demand is expected to be high for a ground whose capacity is a little over 4,000.
