Guiseley AFC need just one more point to ensure second spot in the Blue Square Premier North.
By securing the runners-up spot, The Lions guarantee a home game for the second leg of the playoff semi- final against whichever team manages to claim fifth in the table.
Saturday’s opponents Halifax have also claimed a place in the playoffs but their final finishing spot is more up in the air with the Shaymen still fighting for third place.
The Lions find themselves in this advantageous position thanks in part to their 2-1 victory over newly-crowned champions Chester.
Former Vauxhall Motors midfielder Josh Wilson was once again impressive, takiug his tally to 19 goals for the season and helping guide Guiseley to what was seen by some as a mental victory, even if the result made no change to the standings.
