Pilgrim’s boss Dennis Greene is relishing Saturday’s showdown against last season’s beaten play-off semi-finalists Guiseley.

Guiseley visit The Jakemans Stadium (kick-off 3pm) to re-ignite memories of some entertaining clashes between the sides over recent years.

The Lions have started with two wins, two draws and two defeats from their opening six fixtures but that was not enough to keep manager Steve Kittrick in a job, with the boss departing today (Wednesday).

Fresh from their excellent comeback at Vauxhall Motors, the United boss is ready to go again.

Greene told The Standard: “Guiseley usually provide the benchmark for success in this division and although they have not started brilliantly, they are still likely to feature in the shake-up at the end of the season.

“It will be a good test for us. We are in good form and are keen to extend our good record on home soil. That will be imperative for enjoying a good season. The lads showed good character at Vauxhall Motors. We should arguably have won the match, but I would always take a point when you are losing in the 89th minute.”

The Pilgrims will be without the services of striker Charley Sanders for the final time as he completes a three-match ban. He will return for Tuesday’s trip to Oxford City (kick-off 7.45pm).

United could name an unchanged line-up for the seventh match in a row when they face Guiseley. Greene confirmed he is in advanced talks to sign a midfielder, but the player’s identity has not yet been disclosed.
