Marcus Bignot post Guiseley

We aren’t making it any easier for ourselves. It was a game where we should have come away with all three points. It was something we were in control of. We were in possession of the ball on the halfway line and should have just run the clock down. For some reason we have had the last minute in our half. It’s a hugely disappointed dressing room. Being in that position with a minute left to go, it should have been game over.

Even tougher task

Waiting for Bignot
