Rock Bottom Guiseley Return To Action

by Jamie Woodhouse

Guiseley return to National League action this weekend as they welcome Torquay United to Nethermoor.

The Lions remain 24th and last in the National League five points from safety, picking up only two wins this season.

This will be both teams first league match in two weeks, after missing out on the FA Cup first round fixtures played last weekend.

Torquay are also struggling, sitting in 18th place, winning just one of their last five league matches.

Fans will remember the classic encounter between the two teams on the final day of last season, where Guiseley defeated Torquay 4-3 at Nethermoor in a seven goal thriller to avoid relegation to the National North, sending their West Yorkshire neighbours Halifax Town down in the process.

Midfielders Jake Lawlor and Simon Walton will both be unavailable for Guiseley through suspension but the Lions will be boosted by the return of Connor Brown after serving his suspension.

Lockwood is expected to include new signing Joel Logan in the squad.

Dan Sprakes, Aman Verma and Damon Lathrope are all ruled out for the Gulls with injuries. Newly signed winger David Fitzpatrick is expected to make his debut.

KO: 3pm, Nethermoor.
