Despite being in the relegation zone and facing the team who are second, the Lions took the lead due to an own goal when Sam Habergham tried to clear a low cross from the left but sliced it powerfully into his own net.

Lincoln were only able to create one chance during the opening 45 minutes when Theo Robinson fired straight at Guiseley keeper Jonny Maxted from inside the box.
