Bignot reads the riot act

MOORS manager Marcus Bignot has warned his squad that there will be changes to the team following the club’s sixth consecutive league defeat on Monday.

MOORS manager Marcus Bignot has warned his squad that there will be changes to the team following the club’s sixth consecutive league defeat on Monday.

The Solihull team lost 0-2 at home to Histon FC and for the third game running conceded an early goal.

Histon extended their lead just before half time and the defeat leaves Solihull bottom of the Blue Square Bet North table.

Moors lost 2-1 away to Vauxhall Motors on Saturday.

Dominic Langdon returned to the starting line up for Moors after his trip to Japan for the World Student games.

Against Vauxhall, Moors got off to a poor start again when Josh Wilson headed home in the first minute.

In the second half Solihull’s Sam Adkins capitalised on a fumble by the home goalkeeper. But that was as good as it got, as Vauxhall went 2-1 up on 67 minutes.

To make matters worse, Moors captain Junior English was sent off for a late challenge on Wilson on 85 minutes.

Bignot said: “We have come to a time where we have to re-evaluate and have to make decisions.

“This run of results cannot continue. Results don’t lie.

“It’s a squad I inherited. I have got to stamp my mark on it now, moving one or two out and bringing players in of my choice.

“At the end of last season the run of results was very similar.

“I think the manager wanted to introduce young blood into the squad. On paper it looked good but they haven’t come up to the mark as a group.

“There will be some changes.”

In an attempt to increase their goal count, Moors have signed Joey Butlin on a one month loan from League One side Walsall.

Eighteen-year-old Butlin is a product of Walsall’s Centre of Excellence and signed his first professional contract with the Saddlers in the summer.

He is the third Walsall player to join Solihull on loan after Charlton Davies and Netan Sansara had spells in 2007.

Moors play second from bottom Hinckley United at home tomorrow, KO 3pm.

Bignot added: “I’m looking for a group of players who want it. I want some positivity and players not feeling sorry for themselves.

“I want a non-stop work rate and players that will lead the group.”
