Teams warm up ahead of the game

Warrington thought they’d broken the deadlock after five minutes, a stabbed pass into the penalty area found the feet of Buckley-Richards who was able to beat Cameron Mason only for the linesman’s flag to halt the celebrations.

It took until the 31st minute for Warrington to have another chance on goal, neat footwork from Luke Duffy opened up space but from 20 yards he could only fire down the throat of Cameron Mason.

For all the home side’s possession in the first half, it was Paul Phillips who almost saw his side take the lead just five minutes after the restart. A George Smith freekick from halfway found Meppen-Walters in the penalty box whose header was expertly saved by the right hand of Tony Thompson.

What looked like a harmless Guiseley free kick on 59 minutes almost turned into the opening goal. George Smith with another delivery from deep this time inadvertently had Thompson scrambling backwards with the top of the crossbar coming to his rescue.

After 70 minutes Declan Walker cut inside from the right after beating his man but could only drag his shot wide of Mason’s left post in the Guiseley goal.

With time running out Warrington tried to force the issue through Matty McDonald, the midfielder picked up the ball in the 88th minute on the left of the penalty area and fired goal bound only for Mason to collect at the second time of asking.

There was one final chance in injury time for the Yellows, a marauding run from Bohan Dixon saw him break away down the right before his pull back found McDonald on the edge of the penalty area whose first time strike hit the side netting.

It was honours even at Cantilever Park with both teams having hoped for more, but it finished goalless and a point a piece.
