Guiseley gained their second draw with Paul Cox as manager after drawing 0-0 at Barrow.

The hosts had the first chance when Bedsente Gomis was fed through into the area, his strike towards the near post was well saved by Joe Green who did well to block it with his legs.

Asa Hall was the next to test Green, with his effort from 20 yards out being palmed away cleverly as he moved it away from danger.

But Guiseley had a fantastic chance just before half-time, when a Connor Brown hit the post it fell to Jake Lawlor but his header from close range narrowly went wide.

The second-half was a struggle for both sides with a heavy wind and plenty of rain meant first touches were an issue, Raul Correia saw his long range effort go just wide.

A free-kick for the hosts was nodded into the six yard area, it could have fallen to anyone but instead passed the Barrow players and went to Green instead.

Guiseley could have won it late on when Kevan Hurst had a long range effort on the half-volley it zipped across the turf but went narrowly wide.
