Lions Still Wary Despite Good Form

Guiseley may have risen to the dizzy heights of 17th place in the Vanarama National League but Adam Lockwood knows there is so much work still to do.

The Lions have moved six point ahead of those in the relegation zone after being inside it for most of the season.

Part of the reason, apart from their incredible home form, has much to do with Saturday’s heroic victory at Torquay, their fellow strugglers.

Guiseley not only came from behind to win, but they did it with ten men. Lockwood, their manager, praised not only the players’ fitness but their determination as well.

“We all knew how important the game was,” the manager said. “I really can’t speak highly enough of the players and their attitudes.

“We had to be professional on Saturday and we were. It was an important win.

“We have won 4 out of our last 5 matches but by no means is it job done, not at all. We have tricky games coming up and the gap is not a big enough one for us to be relaxed about the situation.”

The Lions welcome Aldershot Town on Saturday, a side Guiseley know will be demanding. Gary Waddock’s men are looking to make the playoffs and a win this weekend could push them into a top five place.
