Struggling Lions heading to Aldershot

Aldershot Town welcome Guiseley to the Recreation Ground today, as the Lions go in  search of just their third win of the season.

The West Yorkshire club went thirteen games without a win at the start of the campaign, finally picking up their first victory with an emphatic 6-1 home win over York.

They come in to this match off an impressive 1-1 draw against Gateshead, despite holding the lead in that match, until an 86th minute equaliser from Gateshead’s Danny Johnson.

Aldershot meanwhile sit 9th in  the National League table, just two points off the play-off places. The Shots have only lost two of their last ten games.

The club this week dismissed rumours that they were once again suffering severe cash flow problems. The club almost folded in 2013 after going into administration with £1 million of debt.

The Shots will be without winger Shamir Fenelon, after suffering an ankle injury in their 0-0 draw with Torquay.

Simon Walton will be unavailable for Guiseley through suspension, following his sending off against Gateshead.

Lions defender Connor Brown will be serving the last of his three game match ban.

KO: Recreation Ground, 3pm.
