Preview: Quakers at Guiseley

Looking for second away win of the season

We are looking to bounce back from Saturday’s defeat at home to Telford when we go to Nethermoor tonight.

Manager Alun Armstrong was far from happy with the Telford performance, and said; “I thought we played some good football in the first half, but we gave away some soft goals.

“The players know that we must be much better tonight.”

Quakers won 2-1 in the corresponding fixture last season, when Will Hatfield and Adam Campbell scored.

While Quakers have only played four games because of FA Cup commitments, Guiseley have only played three because of a recent Covid outbreak in the camp. Their last game was on 27th October, three weeks ago.
