Bignot out for revenge as Solihull Moors take on Worcester City

SOLIHULL Moors will be out for revenge after kicking their heels for two weeks when they take on Worcester City at home on Saturday.

SOLIHULL Moors will be out for revenge after kicking their heels for two weeks when they take on Worcester City at home on Saturday.

The near neighbours put three goals past the Damson Park outfit earlier this season but Solihull manager Marcus Bignot is promising a different performance come kick off.

“Like us they will be desperate for the three points but we will be looking to make amends and I think they will find a different Solihull Moors this time around,” he said.

A key issue will be how quickly both teams get up to speed following the enforced lay-off caused by the freezing conditions which saw Solihull’s Blue Square North fixtures against Guiseley and Eastwood Town cancelled.

Bignot managed to arrange a full 90 minute match amongst his squad at the weekend and on Tuesday Moors played a friendly against Evostik League Southern Premier Division outfit Leamington.

“Players are short of match practice but at least the lads have had an opportunity for a run around,” said Bignot.

“It’s disappointing for us because prior to the weather we were on a good run of victories.

“Worcester are another one of those sides with big aspirations this season although they have kind of stumbled so it is going to be an interesting game.”

And he appealed to fans starved of live local football to come on down to Damson Park and support Solihull Moors.

“It would be nice to get a good healthy crowd to cheer us on and ultimately get the right result,” he said.

Solihull Moors play Worcester City tomorrow, Saturday at home, kick off 3pm.
