Town’s match against local rivals Guiseley has been re-arranged as the Shaymen look to close the 20 point gap to the top of the Conference North table.

The game will now be played at Nethermoor on Tuesday December 11.

It was originally scheduled for Tuesday November 27, but was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch after 48 hours of heavy rain.

Town then had a second league game in a row called off when Saturday’s game against Solihull Moors at the Shay fell victim to a frozen and waterlogged pitch.

The Shaymen are due to play Harrogate Town at the Shay on Wednesday night (December 5) - a game which will be only their fifth league game in almost 12 weeks since they hammered Gloucester City at home on September 15.

In that time Town have played nine cup games, including the West Riding County Cup, but currently find themselves 20 points off the top of the league - and are now four games behind most teams above them.
