Duane Holmes, Harry Bunn and substitute Jake Charles all hit the target alongside Northern Ireland international Oliver Norwood.

"They were very good; their ability was there for everyone to see," Robins told the club's official website.

"You can see there is an ethos and way of doing things running throughout the club now, which is really pleasing; it's taken 12 months to get to this stage.

"That's testament to all the work that is going on at the club and the players that we are recruiting."

Guiseley held Huddersfield to a 2-2 draw around this time last year, so the omens look good for Town to improve on last season's 17th-placed finish in the Sky Bet Championship.

"It was a really good workout," added Robins. "I thought all the lads that played were excellent; they put a good shift in, ran well and passed the ball well."

Robins reported that Oscar Gobern (toe), Danny Ward (hamstring), Sean Scannell (groin) and Anthony Gerrard (calf) were all carrying knocks.

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
