Paul Cox wants to rid his Guiseley team of the anxiety that is dogging their bid to escape relegation from the Vanarama National League.

They have dropped to second bottom after taking five points from their four festive games. And now they face two more crucial matches in four days as they look to lift themselves out of the mire.

Saturday’s away trip to Eastleigh is followed by a home clash with Gateshead on Tuesday.

Cox said: “You could see the anxiety in our play in Monday’s 1-1 draw with Chester. I felt we needed to grab hold of the game, but we were tentative and uncertain.

“I want the players to play more freely and work to cut out the lapses that have cost us dear. We have conceded late goals against Wrexham, Macclesfield, Bromley and Aldershot and all proved costly.

“With better concentration and game management we would have emerged with more points. The margins are small.”
