This time last season, Guiseley recorded a dramatic 4-3 home victory over Torquay United in their final game of the season, extending their stay in the National League.
Now the Lions have to do it all over again, as Solihull Moors visit Nethermoor, with Guiseley just one point clear of the relegation zone.
Braintree and York, currently sitting in the relegation zone, are the only teams who can now catch Guiseley, with Southport and North Ferriby already down. A win for the Lions would guarantee their safety, but a draw or loss would open the door for the chasing pair.
Solihull currently sit 16th in the table with nothing to play for, as they are mathematically safe from relegation and unable to challenge for the play-offs.
Will Hatfield, Jake Lawlor and Marcus Williams are all doubts for Guiseley through injury. Jake Cassidy returns to the side after serving his three game suspension.
Speaking to the Ilkley Gazette, Guiseley manager Adam Lockwood said: “I would like to think we can get over the line. We have been focused every game but I can be something of a pain and be demanding of the people at the club, to make sure that we do the best we possibly can.
“To be part-time and compete against full-time clubs and teams with bigger resources is impressive. To me, we have a group of individuals who are professional.”
Various special offers are in place as Guiseley look to boost the attendance and get as many fans behind the team as possible. Premier League and Football League club season ticket holders is just £5 entry, and u18’s can watch for free.
Guiseley adult season ticket holders can also claim a free tea or coffee at the game.
KO: 12:15pm, Nethermoor.
