Preston conceded a free kick on the edge of the D when the ball bounced up and hit his hand, the free kick from the central position was deflected by the Lambs defensive wall but the ball fell to a Guiseley player who from the right hit a firm low shot which Belshaw did well to stop with a one handed save diving to his left.
Brendon Daniels was starting to fnd his range with the free kicks from around 30 yards when another from the right went straight to the back post and just missed the on rushing Connor Taylor and went out for a goal kick.
Seconds later another free kick from a similiar postion was easily taken by Steven Drenck the Guiseley keeper.
