West Yorkshire rivals FC Halifax Town go head-to-head with Guiseley on Tuesday night (7.45pm) at Nethermoor with both sides in need of a win.

The two clubs have just three wins between them so far this season, although Guiseley’s last win came against Kidderminster on August 15.

Since then, the Lions have played six games without a win, with Mark Bower’s side conceding more goals at home than any other team in the division.

Guiseley recovered from a losing position three times on Saturday to draw 4-4 with Woking; the second time they’ve conceded four goals this term.

Neil Aspin admits it’s a big game for both clubs, and insists his Town team must be on the front foot.

“A game at Guiseley is always competitive, and it’s a big game for both sides,” he said.

“We have to be positive. When you haven’t kept a clean sheet you’re not going to go there and say ‘we’re going to shut up shop’.”

Danny Hattersley, who limped off on Saturday, is not expected to feature, and neither is Sean Tuton, who is still struggling with an ankle injury.
