Marcus Bignot has challenged his squad players to battle for places in Guiseley’s first team following an encouraging start to the season for his side.

The Lions have roared up into the top six after a mixed Bank Holiday weekend, where a 4-2 defeat to Alfreton Town at Nethermoor on Saturday was followed by a 4-1 victory at bottom-placed Blyth Spartans on Monday in Vanarama National League North.

Guiseley now have a home league double header as they entertain 12th-placed Curzon Ashton on Saturday (3pm kick-off) followed by the visit of leaders York City on Tuesday (7.45pm).

Guiseley are fifth on 13 points after four wins from their opening seven league games.

Bignot said his side quickly bounced back from their loss to Alfreton, showing their strength of character.

He said: “I was disappointed with Saturday, we were short physically. But we learned the lesson very quickly. Saturday into Monday was a quick turnaround, much needed for us.

“We have now got to our first block of seven games, it’s looking healthy for us.

“We are young, there is a lot of athleticism and power in the team.”
