The injury crisis at RCA was somewhat removed with the return of Harkess, Drysdale and Coe. Armstrong and Hughes had also shrugged off niggling little injuries, leaving only Larkin and Hatch on the injury list.
The game started in beautiful sunshine and although RCA started brightly they found it difficult to break down Guisborough's well organised defence and it was the visitors who almost opened the scoring in the fifth minute when a freekick from Bettson was not caught cleanly by Harkess and fell to Earl; fortunately for RCA the offside flag had been raised.
