GUISELEY'S fantastic run away from home of 11 matches unbeaten in the Vanarama National League North finally came to an end at the same venue they suffered their last defeat more than a year ago.

AFC Telford United again the victors but in less convincing fashion than that 4-1 win last October at New Bucks Head.

Prince Ekpolo's red card in the 69th minute was the game changer after Zak Lilly had given the hosts an early second half lead.

Four minutes later, Davies scored a penalty to secure a comfortable 2-0 victory for Telford.

Striker Kaine Felix returned to the starting XI, while there was a first senior start for Lewis Hey, and new signing John Lufudu made his debut at right back. The defender had been brought in on a dual registration from Aston United earlier in the day.

The hosts had the better of the opening chances. Dominic McHale fired straight at Brad Wade, and Jason Oswell missed an unmarked header at the back stick.

Then came an extraordinary event what would only happen in non-league. Referee Liam Marshall clashed with a United player meaning he had to go off injured at half time.

In his place came assistant Mark Ryder, with a linesman missing, step forward Southport club secretary James Tedford. The Sandgrounders man had only been at the game to do some scouting.

Guiseley should have taken the lead when a mix-up at the back between Theo Streete and Russ Griffiths allowed Felix to find Nathan Newall at the far post but the youngster blazed over.

A couple of minutes later, Lilly headed home at close range. Ekpolo then received his marching orders for a late high boot on Jack Byrne.

George Cantrill pulled down Lee Vaughan in the box to all but end his side's chances.

The Lions travel to Spennymoor Town tonight after signing up academy centre half Chukwudalu Molokwu.
