Match Review

Aaron Williams scored his second hat trick for Bucks six years after scoring his first treble, with the Bucks proving too strong for playoff occupied Guiseley. The Bucks make it two positive results on a row following last weeks draw against league leaders York City.

Williams scored his first after the visitors failed to deal with a corner kick as the ball eventually came his way, with the striker just having sweep up the finish from close range as he waited at the back post.

Williams then got his second when just after the half time interval, where there was an infringement from an opposing player where a quick snap shot from Darryl Knights deflected the ball onto a Guiseley hand. Williams stepped up with a perfect penalty by blasting the ball high into the left side of the net.

His third and the goal that wrapped up his hat trick came when Brendan Daniels was quick to take a free kick where he played the ball into Williams feet, as he then sliced the ball into the back of the net when getting goal side of the defender.

Stenson added the third after he finally got his reward for another hard-working performance, the attacker kept his calm and composure to dispatch a low driven shot from inside the box following a mazy-like run.

The opposition`s goal came at 2-0 with the home keeper Matt Yates choosing wrongly to try to claim a free kick as he was caught off guard, as when the ball came floated in Hamza Bencherif just had the simple matter of proding the ball into an empty net.

The Bucks had several opportunities to further embed a more damaging score line at the hands of Guiseley, as Williams had a chance for the hat trick earlier in the game when his header was saved low down by their keeper.

The Bucks managed to finish the game at 4-1 with Williams putting in an man of the match display leading off his fine hat trick.

Here is what manager is Gavin Cowan`s had to say following on from the game as he was full of praise for Williams and his team following a comprehensive team effort.

He was also keen to point out that their levels must not drop and if they are to continue to progress then must keep striving to embrace their duties.

“I think its taking time for everyone to get going, not just Aaron, you know some of the defenders that are not measured on goals, and perhaps haven`t been fulfilling their tasks. Aaron is measured on goals which is a little bit clearer. Credit to him and everyone else that their fulfilling their duties.

“I think if you are going to be successful that its important you get your home form right and we have done that the last two games, but again its a long season so we got to continue to do so.

“Standards, the standards of the football club are at a certain level, and if you`re not meeting them then you won`t be apart of this football club. Everyone who is involved in every capacity of the club has to understand that this club has to meet certain standards.”
