LIVE: Guiseley v Alfreton

Preview

An important game for relegation threatened Guiseley sees them take on 12th place Alfreton Town at Nethermoor this Tuesday, looking to keep their hopes of staying in the National League North alive.

The home side come into the game without a win in five, despite a valiant performance last time out against high-flying Fylde losing 2-1, The Lions precariously sit just two points above the lone relegation spot this season.

Conversely, Alfreton will be desperate for the three points in their efforts to push for the play-offs this season but a poor defeat to Blyth last time out leaves them four points off seventh place Curzon Ashton.

Last time these two sides met, The Reds defeated Guiseley 4-2 in a thrilling affair at Nethermoor in 2019, but with the home side having just sold top scorer Jordan Thewlis to Spennymoor, goals may be hard to come by for The Lions this time around.

Report

Guiseley overcame Alfreton town 3-2 in a brilliant 5 goal thriller at Nethermoor this evening to put themselves 5 points clear of the dropzone.

A brace from new man Dominic Tear on his home debut and a late curling effort from Lebrun Mbeka saw The Lions pick up all 3 points in what was an impressive performance from the West Yorkshire side.

Despite Alfreton equalising twice after going behind, they couldn’t hold out for a draw and are slowly seeing teams around the play-offs pull away from them.

Next up for Guiseley is a trip to Merseyside to face Southport, whilst Alfreton host fellow play-off hopefuls Spennymoor Town.
