WILL power is set to play a big part in Guiseley’s bid to claw their way off the bottom of the Vanarama National League.

One man who has impressed caretaker manager Sean St Ledger during his brief spell at the helm is fit-again Will Hatfield.

The midfieldman recently returned to action after a long spell on the sidelines after undergoing groin surgery in November. St Ledger enthused: “He’s been magnificent, he’s clearly looked after his body while he’s been injured.

“I’ve been really surprised at how well he’s managed his fitness levels, I thought he would have struggled a lot more because he was out for such a long time.

“That’s credit to him and the way he manages himself.

“Will’s a winner and you need those people in your squad.”

Guiseley currently sit 11 points off safety with 11 games remaining in the season.

The postponement of the home games with Dagenham and Redbridge on Saturday and Barrow on Tuesday has at least given the former Republic of Ireland international time to work with his squad ahead of Saturday’s trip to Bromley.

Guiseley currently sit 11 points off safety with 11 games remaining in the season.

“It’s probably my first week where we haven’t had a Tuesday game, apart from last week where we weren’t able to train because of the snow, so I’m looking forward to it (working with the squad in training).” St Ledger said.

He admitted that opponents Bromley may have been affected by their long midweek trip to Spennymoor Town for an FA Trophy replay, that was called off when they had trekked all the way to the north east.

St Ledger said: "It's going to be a difficult game but an added advantage might be that we'll be fresh, we haven't played for nearly two weeks and they'll have had a long journey.

"They won't have got back to London until late on Tuesday night. Sometimes you just have to look at positives like that."

In terms of his own role, St Ledger was coy about whether he would be on the sidelines or lining up in defence for the Lions at the weekend.

He laughed: "I'm not too sure yet, we'll just have to wait and see.

"Besides, that would be telling, I can't give all my secrets away!"

Guiseley have re-arranged the Nethermoor clash with Barrow for Tuesday, April 17.
