Lions pre­par­ing for rel­e­ga­tion rites

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - FOOTBALL -

NA­TIONAL LEAGUE: Guise­ley must win their last five games and hope other re­sults go their way af­ter los­ing at Soli­hull Moors.

The 3-1 de­feat means the Lions are 15 points away from safety with 15 points to play for.

In­terim man­ager Sean St Ledger said: “It is dis­ap­point­ing to lose. We’ve faced one of the form sides in the league and could have got back to 2-2.

“We just have to go again and look ahead to Tues­day at home against Barrow. We know how im­por­tant that game is for ev­ery­one.”

Guise­ley made a bright start with Dayle Southwell hav­ing a shot saved.

St Ledger was go­ing up against his old team and so was Ben Frem­pah, who had the mis­for­tune of head­ing into his own net from a long throw.

Guise­ley’s task be­came even more dif­fi­cult as Jamey Os­bourne saw his ef­fort from dis­tance take a big de­flec­tion and leave goal­keeper Joe Green with no chance.

The Lions got back in it thanks to a penalty from Southwell af­ter he had been fouled.

Mo­ments later Max O’Leary saved a fine ef­fort from Dar­ren Holden, but Soli­hull’s Dar­ren Carter de­liv­ered a cross that Fi­acre Kelle­her glanced in.

Rowan Liburd had an ef­fort cleared off the line for the Lions.
