North Ferriby United v Guiseley
Tuesday 22 October
North Ferriby United will be looking to bounce back from Saturday’s defeat at Telford when struggling Guiseley visit the Eon Visual Media Stadium on Tuesday.
Guiseley are currently in the relegation zone. The West Yorkshire side has the worst scoring record in the division and one of the worst defensive records.
The game provides an early opportunity for Ferriby to recover from Saturday’s disappointing defeat. Nathan Jarman’s sending-off for two yellow cards just before the interval was the turning point of the game. Ferriby defended stubbornly with Matt Wilson and Gregg Anderson outstanding against a largely aerial attack from Telford. The games’ one moment of real quality from Tony Gray and a goal that most people in the ground thought should have been given as off-side sealed Ferriby’s fate.
Manager Billy Heath commented, “We started slowly and never really got in to our rhythm. The sending-off obviously changed the game as it made life more difficult. The result was obviously disappointing but we mustn’t forget that we are still third in the division.”
Commenting on the Guiseley fixture, Heath said, “I expect the players to show their character and determination on Tuesday. Guiseley are struggling but we will not be underestimating them. We have a 100 per cent home record and are obviously keen to maintain that.
Danny Hone is back in contention for a place after recovering from an ankle ligament injury but Dean Lisles is still doubtful. Central defender Mark Gray returns to the squad after being ineligible for the FA Cup game.
