Lions preparing for relegation rites
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.
