Fleetwood Town boss Joey Barton has praised Guiseley after it was announced that their FA Cup second round meeting has been chosen for live TV coverage, The Blackpool Gazette report.

The match will take place on Monday, December 3 (8pm) and will be shown on BT Sport 1. Guiseley have already staged one giantkilling so far, knocking League Two side Cambridge United out with a 4-3 win last weekend.

Town dispatched the Lions’ fellow National League North side Alfreton Town on Sunday with a 4-1 win at the Impact Arena.

It might be another non-league team on the horizon but Barton (pictured) will treat them with the same respect that he would a League One side as Town anticipate a difficult evening at Nethermoor.

He said: “It is how you approach it. They have come off the back of beating Cambridge.

“It is a game that, if someone offered you an opportunity to get into the third round, then you would like to be at home – which we are not, which makes it a bit more complex than I would like it – and then you would like to play a side preferably from the divisions below you.”
