Solihull Moors Preview

Town face a third away fixture on the bounce on Tuesday night as they travel to Damson Park to take on Solihull Moors.



Tim Flowers’ side sit three points and three places behind Town in The National League, though with a game in hand and being the only fixture in the division on the night, Moors will be determined to make up ground.

Solihull were in sixth place the last time the sides met back in August, when goals from Liam Kitching, George Thomson and Callum Howe helped Town to a 3-1 victory.

Highlights

That win was Town’s seventh over Tuesday night’s opponents, while Solihull have won nine, leaving three draws from the 19 times the sides have met, none of which have come in the last nine meetings.

Only two sides have better away records than Town following Saturday’s 2-1 win at Maidenhead, though Solihull have lost just once at home all season and have conceded only four goals in their 11 National League matches at Damson Park to date.

Flowers’ side’s last four home fixtures have all ended goalless, with his side not having conceded in six on home soil, though only Salford have scored more goals this season than Simon Weaver’s men.

At the other end Danny Wright and Adil Yussuf, who netted in Solihull’s defeat at The CNG Stadium, have eight and seven league goals this term and will need to be nullified if Town are to come away with a positive result.

With a potential clash with Arsenal looming, should they overcome Blackpool in an FA Cup replay, Solihull will be desperate to keep their good run of form going, with Town aiming to move a step closer to the league’s top two.
