Guiseley joint-manager Marcus Bignot is eagerly anticipating his side’s FA Cup second round game with Joey Barton’s Fleetwood Town tonight.

Former Chester FC boss Bignot told the Yorkshire Evening Post:

“I played at QPR when Clint Hill, who is Joey’s assistant, was there. I finished my diploma in football management with Clint over the summer and know Clint really well.

“I have a lot of respect for what Joey has done in the game and have watched his managerial stint with interest because I do think he is one of those who is a student of the game and is intelligent behind the character that people try to portray.

“There is a person in there who is driven and one who I believe will do well in the game. Fleetwood are a good team and it will be a difficult challenge from a league and standard above what we played in the last round (Cambridge United).

“We know we will have to be at our very best and deliver technically and tactically and be right on it mentally too.”
