 Source: Yorkshire Post

 Guiseley shrugged off first-half injuries to striker Danny Forrest and midfielder Danny Boshell to gain a 2-0 victory over FC United of Manchester, at Nethermoor, and reach the second round.

Although Guiseley always looked the better side they had to wait until the 71st minute to open the scoring, Gavin Rothery doing it in style by giving three defenders the slip before shooting against a post and firing home the rebound.

Guiseley’s place in the next round was assured with four minutes left when Lee Ellington shot into the corner of the net after the visitors failed to clear a corner.
