Guiseley co-manager Marcus Bignot insists that he remains very confident that the Lions will stave off the National League North drop – and avoid a second successive relegation, report the Yorkshire Evening Post.

It has been another testing campaign for the Lions, afforded kudos by way of some FA Cup highs, but some sobering reality at league level.

As it stands, the fourth-from-bottom Lions are winless in 12 matches since New Year’s Day and have not picked up three points on home soil since October 13.

They do have a three-point buffer and a game in hand over the two sides just above them in FC United of Manchester and Ashton United – who they welcome in a potential pivotal ‘six-pointer’ on April 13. And Bignot remains confident that Guiseley have the wherewithal to stay up.

He said: “We have no doubt about this group; they are all in it together. Whether it is the starting 11 on the pitch or in the stands.

“We have all got our common cause and the motivation is to make sure that we are a National League North club at the end of the season. I have no doubt that we will manage to do that.”
