Another atrocious defensive display

SOLIHULL Moors 'atrocious' defending continued to frustrate Bob Faulkner as his travelling men were comfortably beaten 3-0 by promotion-chasing Telford on Tuesday.

SOLIHULL Moors 'atrocious' defending continued to frustrate Bob Faulkner as his travelling men were comfortably beaten 3-0 by promotion-chasing Telford on Tuesday.

A well-taken strike from Andy Brown opened the scoring after 30 minutes before Danny Carey-Bertram took advantage of a Lee Collins slip to add a second minutes after the break.

The second goal took the sting out of the game and when Lee Moore smashed in a third, it was clear the three points were going to the home side.

Tomorrow Moors entertain high-flying Harrogate and they will be hoping to increase their unbeaten home run to three games after a narrow 3-2 victory over Vauxhall Motors last Saturday.

Goals from Andy Ducros, Marcus Palmer and Peter Faulds helped Moors to victory last week.

An own goal from Simon Travis had given the Ellesmere Port side an early lead but an impressive fight-back ensured Moors regained control.

Anthony Wright's consolation goal for the visitors was the boiling point for Faulkner who branded his side's defending as 'kamikaze'.

"I'm angry because our defending was awful," he said. "I'm pleased with the win but our defending was atrocious once again.

"It was kamikaze and the way we let in the second goal was unacceptable.

"The players know how I feel and they must start dealing with what is thrown at them."

Admission to tomorrow's game against Harrogate is just £10 for adults and £5 for juniors. With Skysports installed in the bar, fans can keep up to date with all the other local football as well as watching the borough's top side in action.
