An injury-time penalty from Omar Bogle gave the Moors a deserved point from their visit to title-chasing AFC Fylde.

Big-spending Fylde have enjoyed a meteoric rise up the non-league pyramid and have been at the top end of the Vanarama Conference North all season and beat Moors 1-0 in January.

Solihull attacked from the opening whistle and on four minutes, following good work by Beswick, Stefan Moore was unlucky to see his goal-bound effort blocked by home keeper Hinchcliffe and Bogle was unfortunate not to convert the rebound.

While Tony Breeden dealt with a one-on-one with Lloyd, Daryl Knights was dictating play from midfield and on 20 minutes he collected a superb Bogle through ball to drill past Hinchcliffe from just inside the area.

On 28 minutes ex-Vauxhall Motors striker Josh Wilson got on the end of an Allen cross but headed wide for Fylde.

Moors continued to press forward and Moore was unlucky as he burst into the box only to see his goal-bound strike blocked by the chest of Hinchcliffe.

As half-time approached, Bogle’s effort from a tight angle was blocked by the home keeper at his near post.

His free-kick from 20 yards bent round the defensive wall and Hinchcliffe parried the ball for a corner.

From Knights’ corner Fleet’s well-struck shot flew inches over.

On 48 minutes the home side drew level when a throw-in resulted in indecision from the Moors’ rearguard and Sumner fed Danny Rowe who slotted past Breeden.

And on 55 minutes Fylde took the lead when a swift break again caught out the Moors’ defence.

Rowe played the ball across the Solihull box to Allen who was first to react and slammed the ball into the empty net.

Fylde continued to push forward but on 71 minutes Moors introduced Jean-Michel Gueyes and in injury time his persistence down the left flank kept the ball alive, and a clear hand-ball from Josh Langley resulted in a penalty from which Bogle slotted the equaliser.

Bogle’s latest strike extends his tally to 29 league goals this season.

On Saturday, Moors play their last home game of the season against former Football League outfit Boston United.

With Solihull now having spoiled the dreams of Barrow, Hednesford and Fylde, these play-off hopefuls will be wary of their visit to the Autotech Stadium (3pm).

Solihull finish their season on April 25 with a visit to play-off-chasing Chorley.
