Guiseley are still looking for their first point of the season after losing late on 3-2 to North Ferriby United.

North Ferriby took the lead after only eight minutes when Ryan Kendall picked up a pass and was able to strike it into the top corner.

The home side were soon 2-0 up when Danny Emerton took advantage of a mis-hit clearance and fired the ball into the corner of the goal.

Guiseley needed to react to being behind and got back in the match when Jordan Preston passed to Oil Johnson who lifted the ball past the keeper and into the net.

The second half saw the away side on the attack with the likes of Will Hatfield and Michael Rankine, seeing efforts saved. Johnson then saw his effort late on somehow cleared off the line with not long left in the match.

But Johnson would not be denied again as he leveled the scores with a smart finish.

A draw looked like the only result until in the 90th minute a Marcus Williams clearence came off Simon Russell and somehow went past Dan Atkinson and into the goal.
