Lowly Guiseley made it two wins in a week as they added a victory over Southport to Tuesday’s mauling of York.

The hosts’ Jake Cassidy hit a shot against Magnus Norman’s upright early on while at the other end, Ryan Higgins also hit the woodwork with a deflected shot.

Adam Lockwood’s basement battlers nosed in front four minutes after the break when Jermaine Hylton teed up Cassidy to net a rasping opener.

Southport levelled in the 69th minute when Jamie Allen fired home after a manic goalmouth scramble, but two substitutes combined to win it for Guiseley after 82 minutes as Adam Boyes crossed for Michael Rankine to nod home.

Rankine had a late penalty saved by Norman but it did not alter the outcome.
