Kendal Town 1 Guiseley 0

GUISELEY went out of the FA Cup on Tuesday night when their re-play at Kendal saw the home side triumph by a solitary goal after Guiseley had hit a post and then failed from the penalty spot.

Steve Kittrick’s men created a host of chances but it is Kendal who now travel to Nuneaton and a potential crack at League opposition for the winners.

Guiseley started with the line-up that finished so strongly on Saturday, but it was the home side who threatened first when a cross from the left was headed wide by the unmarked Glen Steel. Steve Burton then turned Steel at the other end but pulled his shot just wide.

Warren Beattie’s half volley whistled past Worsnop’s upright and when Liam Needham whipped in a cross from the left Lee Tuck put his header the wrong side of the post. As the game swung from end-to-end the home side’s Danny Wisdom did well to evade two visiting defenders and shoot across Worsnop but fortunately his shot went behind.

After the resumption Kendal’s Steve Cotterill hit a volley over, then Burton turned his marker once again only to see his low shot beat David Newnes and rebound off the foot of the post.

James Walshaw has a fierce shot tipped round the post by Newnes whilst Lee Askham has a goalbound shot blocked and Kendal’s Ryan Salmon headed wide from a good position.

The decisive moment came on 78 minutes when Kendal’s Carl Osman forced the ball home from close range following a free-kick delivered in from the right.

Guiseley were then given a golden opportunity with minutes remaining when Walshaw was tripped in the penalty area, but Anthony Lloyd’s spot kick brought a superb save from Newnes. Despite five minutes of added time Guiseley were unable to grab an equaliser.
