Cox Knows Task At Hand At Guiseley

Guiseley manager Paul Cox believes keeping Guiseley in the National League would be his best achievement.

The Lions have their full attention on the league after their exit from the FA Cup, they take on Ebbsfleet United away from home as they look to get up the table, writes Tom Feaheny.

"When I came in the aim was staying up, the cup run has been a nice extra, our bread and butter is the league matches, we know there has to be a change," Cox said.

"I've gained promotions, won leagues but keeping Guiseley up would be my best achievement, I've never been relegated as a boss or player now the focus is on that."

Guiseley's 3-0 loss against Mansfield Town was watched in front of a good deal in the away end, and Cox says he wants results for them

"There was a tremendous turnout of 650 fans being there, we wanted to give them a performance unfortunately we couldn't at Mansfield but now we want to in the other games.

"It was disappointing for us all as we just didn't get going for the first 20 minutes, we let them dictate the pace of the match and that set the trend, that has been and gone now, we know what the focus and attention is on."

"We move on there are a lot of points to play for, we aim to get as many as we can."
