FA Trophy

Guiseley at home if we can first get past Stafford Rangers - an attractive enough prospect against a side not doing much on the road this season and of course a chance to erase some of the painful memory of losing that play-off final! But of course a job to do first.

Job done, just about. It wasn't the best performance of the year, but yet another clean sheet was the foundation for our victory. Thanks to an excellent turnout from Stafford, there was a half decent atmosphere on a rotten night.

Agreed, Mark. I was concerned beforehand that it might be a difficult game partly because we hadn't played for over a fortnight and partly because Stafford were on a good run, unbeaten in ten. They made us work hard - but it would have been considerably easier, I suspect, if only Jason Walker had accepted a clear chance in the first minute. He rushed his finish unmarked six yards out at the far post when he had time to take a touch and size the job up. The goal owed everything to Adam Roscoe's fiercely-struck free kick which beat the wall and forced a good save from the keeper in pushing it aside but full credit to Kieran Charnock for picking up the loose ball and scoring from a difficult angle. Although we bossed the first half, Stafford (wind-assisted) had the greater possession in the second and we were forced to defend in numbers. As usual our defensive strengths showed and as Mark says it was the essence of the win. For all Stafford's pressing, Shaun Rowley wasn't too seriously tested, shot-wise, but he showed confident handling when necessary. A very pleasing outcome as, had we lost, we would have had no game for the third Saturday on the bounce. And of course there was the small matter of £4k prize-money! Let's hope for a better spectacle and another win on Saturday. COYM!

Well said Mike1, not much to add, thought Adam Roscoe deserves a mention for another terrific display, good in the air, some great tackles and, of course, a fiercely hit free kick which lead to the goal . Well done everyone, on to Saturday, COYM

Has Nathan Sheron loan period ended? He looked very useful.

He was always an unpleasant character as manager of Rushall ... Although previously he had
a good record against us, Notably the 6-1 win at V.P :(

To be fair I don't think he was particularly unpleasant. Imagine Matt in the same position he would probably have said similar things. It sounds as though they did give a good account of themselves so you can understand his dissapointment.

Talking out of his backside. Turned it off when he said "slight slope on the pitch". Maybe he's got one leg shorter than the other

Agreed Ian. That's the worst we've played all season probably and we still beat them. They didn't like a team being as physical as they were. Walker missed a sitter and we had a good shout for or not given. It could have been over at half time. They lumped a few balls into the box in the second half but thats about it.

We were pretty poor and rusty on a terrible night, with a small crowd and very little atmosphere. They missed their big chance of a upset and we were professional enough to see it out.

Now it makes sense...I honestly didn't know this fact and was only saying on Tuesday -"just like Rushall of old -time wasters, divers, over aggressive , abusive, attempting to intimidate the officials". Leopards and spots etc.

We did what we needed to do as Tempie says. On now to Saturday, when surely Guiseley will be more cultured/skillful and allow us to play a football match. Hope we can flatten out the slope by then. COYM!
