Lancaster City travel to Guiseley looking for a “reaction”

Lancaster City will look to bounce back from a disappointing result at the weekend when they face Guiseley.

Lancaster lost 2-1 to Stafford Rangers on Saturday, a result which saw them drop to 17th in the NPL Premier Division, just three points clear of the drop zone.

Mark Fell’s men haven’t won in five away from home and his side will be looking to change that at Nethermoor.

Guiseley, who City will play on Tuesday night, are the only side in the league that the Dollies have not played this season.

The original date for this fixture was in December but the match has now been rearranged twice, once from the original fixture date due to Guiseley’s involvement in the FA Trophy, and again in January when the playing surface at Nethermoor was frozen.

The two sides haven’t played each other since 2018 when they were drawn against each other in the FA Trophy.

Guiseley were relegated from the Vanarama National North last season and are playing NPL football for the first time in thirteen seasons.

They are ninth in the league and have been in relatively good form of late, winning six of their last ten and keeping clean sheets in their previous three games.

Their upturn in form after a tricky start to the season is partly down to new manager Paul Phillips, who joined the Lions at the back end of November.

Speaking after Lancaster’s defeat to Stafford Rangers on Saturday, Mark Fell said that the next six games are really important “for getting out of trouble”.

He also said he expects a “reaction” from the players to after the disappointment at the weekend.

“We haven’t started the last couple of games well – we didn’t start well against FC United [of Manchester] and didn’t start well [on Saturday], so I want to see a reaction, I want to see us at our best.”

Guiseley v Lancaster City kicks off on Tuesday at 7.45pm at Nethermoor.
