Russ O’Neill says his Guiseley side have regrouped and are ready for one of their longest road trips of the season this weekend.

The Lions travel to 15th-placed AFC Telford United on Saturday encouraged by a 1-1 home draw with Altrincham, which leaves them in seventh on 21 points.

This share of the spoils stopped a mini-rot of two successive league and FA Cup defeats for Guiseley, who have suffered with 14-goal top scorer Aaron Martin serving a three-match suspension, which ends after the trip to Shropshire.

Guiseley will also be missing midfielder Jamie Spencer at Telford as he serves a ban for picking up five yellow cards already this season.

Despite his side needing to be patched up, O’Neill says they travel with plenty of confidence as they recover from a frantic start to the campaign, with 10 league games in the opening four weeks.

Joint-manager O’Neill said: “It was a positive draw against Altrincham. It’s been a good start to the season.

“We have had a few suspensions and that’s something we can manage ourselves and improve on that. We have lost key players like Aaron Martin.

“The last seven to 10 days has been about us regrouping and managing to get back to where we were at the start of the season.”
