Marcus Bignot was delighted with his Guiseley squad after Thursday night’s performance against Leeds United, with the Lions now preparing for the visit of Scunthorpe United to Nethermoor on Saturday.
Leeds edged out Guiseley in a close-fought contest after Kaine Felix gave the home side the lead before two goals after the break from the visitors.
Bignot said: “I am absolutely delighted with the performance we put in. Every Guiseley fan can come away really encouraged with the performance we put in.”
“This was a serious test. Speaking to Leeds in the week, they were approaching it as a serious game.
“If you compare it to their game at York, they played two 11s. They wanted to keep the same 11 out there tonight.
“This is only our second game, so to put in that performance mentally, physically, tactically and technically, I am absolutely delighted, because we got to our own ability and it was there for all to see. I couldn’t be any prouder of them.”
