WARRINGTON Rylands’ unbeaten run is over.

For the first time in 14 league games, Michael Clegg’s side suffered defeat today.

It came at the hands of Guiseley, falling 1-0 at Gorsey Lane.

Gabriel Johnson scored the deciding goal in the 69th minute.

It was a poor goal to give away in what was a dour game.

Rylands keeper Luke Pilling clashed with Guiseley midfielder Tom Pratt after rushing off his line and it left Johnson with the opportunity to chip the ball into the empty net.

Clegg rued the absence of some experienced players, with Rylands fielding a young XI in the Northern Premier League encounter.

“We were poor from minute one to 93. I thought the game was poor and it was a terrible goal for us to concede but I thought today it was one of them where we just ran out of steam.

“Experienced lads were unavailable and I just didn’t think we did much.

“I said to the lads they weren’t exciting at all, they were really bland.

“We looked void of ideas and credit to Guiseley for the three points. I watched them on Tuesday when I thought they were really good and I thought they were alright again today but we were just poor from start to finish.

“We missed the older lads. That was a very young XI barring Scott Bakkor and Ben Hardcastle, and I thought we just looked void of ideas which is a little bit worrying because that’s no goals in two games for us which is a bit unheard of with the firepower we’ve got.

“We’ll just carry on grinding and we’re still second in the league and we’ll dig in all we can to stay up there.”
