Another goal-mouth scramble as Solihull Moors clash with AFC Fylde

Fylde are an ambitious club and not without good reason. During the last 12 years their progress has been meteoric so it was no surprise as they came flying out of the blocks in the opening 20 minutes.

Lloyd-McGoldrick was through on 60 seconds and Tony Breeden made the first of several fine saves.

On eight minutes, Allen found himself in a ocean of space on the right flank but despite a good cross, none of the Fylde attack was on hand.

Moors were lucky on the quarter hour mark when Breeden’s save at the right post suggested the ball had already crossed the goal line.

Breeden again foiled Lloyd-McGoldrick’s low shot on 20 minutes while Wilson’s effort was wide.

Having weathered the storm, Moors first real chance came midway through the half when Ryan Beswick cleared the bar from 15 yards after good work from Bogle and Knights.

Fylde were again straight out of the blocks from the beginning of the second half with Lloyd-McGoldrick just wide on 55 minutes.

But still, no goal came and it wasn’t until the first minute of added time that the stalemate was broken. A rasping shot from Fylde rattled Moors cross bar and as the ball rebounded to Hughes on the 18-yard line, the full-back hammered it into the back of the net to give the visitors a late, late victory. Tomorrow, Solihull Moors are at home to mid-table Brackley Town (kick-off 3pm).
