Guiseley: Report

It was a game of two halves tonight, with Town dominating the first with goals from Sam Walker and Kingsley James. However, Guiseley came back into the second half with a determination to level the playing field, and they did just that with Adam Boyes scoring twice.

An impressive performance in the first half saw the Shaymen carry a 2-0 lead into the second half for the first time this season. After being brought down on the edge of the area, Sam Walker stepped up to take the free kick, firing a powerful shot into the back of the net to put Town ahead 13 minutes in. It was Kingsley James who gave the Shaymen a comfortable 2-0 lead minutes before the half time whistle.

A great ball into the box by Scott McManus on the left wing, gave the Shaymen their first shot on goal, but it was caught easily by Guiseley keeper Steven Drench. Town came close again minutes later as a scramble in the Guiseley box was cleared off the line, as the Shaymen continued to keep up the pressure.

Town took the lead with Walker firing home from a free kick just outside the area to give the home side their first goal. Shortly after, Walker put the Guiseley keeper under pressure once more with his second shot of the game.

Former Shayman, Will Hatfield gave Guiseley a glimmer of hope but he couldn't keep his shot down, sending the ball wide over the bar.

The Shaymen continued to dominate play as a flick on by Burrows was met by Roberts who made a run down the wing, firing the ball towards Guiseley's net. But his shot is saved well by Drench.

Kingsley James ensured Town went into the half time break with a 2-0 lead, collecting the ball down the right wing to go one on one with the keeper before slotting the ball under Steven Drench for his third goal this season in Town colours.

Guiseley looked to make a comback in the second half, upping the pressure, but a dangerous tackle on Nicky Wroe saw Danny Boshell receive the first yellow card of the match.

Jordan Burrows came close to increasing Town's lead on the 65thminute, his shot just teasing the crossbar.

Guiseley yet again found themselves with a yellow card as Adam Lockwood was booked. Shortly after, the referee got his cards out once more, this time showing Nicky Wroe a yellow for a foul.

The Shaymen made a break down the middle to find Robert on the edge of the area, but he was unable to trouble Drench who kicked it back out to his side.

The Lions finally found the back of the net on the 75thminute with Adam Boyes firing home to give Guiseley an extra boost of confidence before getting his second goal of the game five minutes later to level the score at 2-2.

With 15 minutes left of play, Town looked to make a break for it as a a great cross to Tuton on the left wing was played to James who put the ball into the box, but they were unable to capitalise.

Both teams had chances to increase the goal tally and take the lead but neither side could find the back of net to leave the full time score at 2-2. The replay will most likely take place on Tuesday night at Nethermoor Park.
