This promises to be an interesting game with lots of action and energy as both teams are well refreshed since they last played a game. Let's go!


Stourbridge form and stats

Last season, Stourbridge's Fa Trophy journey ended in the 3rd round qualifying.

3W-1D-0L is the hard facts regardless of venue in the Fa Trophy for Stourbridge.

Stourbridge's previous game was also a home match, the defeat 0-2 versus Banbury United.

Before that, Stourbridge had a Non League Premier: Southern Central home game versus Redditch United which ended with a victory 4-0.

The bookmakers consider this a fairly even contest. One could say only the home advantage separates the teams. It could be relevant to look at how Stourbridge have performed in matches similar to this (as small favourites). Our database has found two matches with the results: Won zero, drawn one and lost one.

Some members of the home team might already be thinking of their next match, the Non League Premier: Southern Central game versus Stratford Town in only two days. This game is also played here at War Memorial Athletic Ground.

Stourbridge have prepared for this season with two friendly games versus mixed opposition. Results from training matches should always be treated with caution, but the takeaways from these two matches are 0 victories, 0 draws and 2 losses. In these games, Stourbridge have scored 1 goal and conceded 4 times.


Guiseley form and stats

They also participated in Fa Trophy last season. This ended in the 3rd round.

Guiseley lost away at Spennymoor Town (1-2) in their previous game and are perhaps starting to feel homesick.

Ahead of that game was the 0-0 draw at home against Farsley Celtic in the Vanarama National League North.

As mentioned above, this is an open game with no clear favourite. We have found six similar matches played by Guiseley in our archives, and the results are: two wins for Guiseley, four draws and zero defeats.
