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
We’ll have reaction online shortly.

As we were
Scrappy game continues so far. 5 minutes in and a game of very little quality.
Second half kicks off
Blues get us back underway. No changes.
Crowd of 855 here at Guiseley. Plenty of Blues fans in that.
Surprising scoreline at half time
Half time: Guiseley 0 Chester 0
Ok defensively but impotent going forward from the Blues.
