Louis Walsh doesn’t have X Fac­tor for Guise­ley

Sunday Sun - - Non-league Football -

QUAKERS are now un­beaten in five games af­ter set­tling for a point against Guise­ley at Blackwell Mead­ows.

Quakers were never al­lowed to set­tle by their en­er­getic vis­i­tors, plus they had to ad­just to the loss of striker Si­mon Ainge just be­fore half time.

Guise­ley nearly opened the scor­ing af­ter 12 min­utes when Louis Walsh, who was signed on loan from Barns­ley the day be­fore the game, ran through and hit the post with keeper Zach Hem­ming beaten.

Quakers had their first real chance on 29 min­utes when Stephen Thomp­son rose high to head the ball into the Guise­ley six yard box, where Har­vey Saun­ders turned the ball over the top.

A minute later Jor­dan Ni­chol­son opened the de­fence up and set up Thomp­son, who fired right footed across the face of goal and just past the far post.

But Quakers had to reshuf­fle just be­fore half time when Ainge suf­fered a deep cut on his head as he went for the ball, and had to be re­placed by David Sy­ers, and in turn Quakers lost some of their aerial threat.

In the sec­ond half, Har­vey Saun­ders forced Guise­ley keeper Joe Green into a good save at the foot of his post but it was Guise­ley who forced the pace af­ter that.

Kaine Felix forced Hem­ming into a good low save, then in their next at­tack Paul Clay­ton some­how man­aged to miss from a cou­ple of yards af­ter Hem­ming had par­ried a shot by Kings­ley James.

Hem­mings then touched a de­flected cross by Felix against the bar, and then in the last minute, Clay­ton missed an­other sit­ter af­ter Felix’s shot was blocked.
