SOLIHULL are through to the club’s first ever cup final after winning this tight Birmingham Senior Cup semi final.

A goal by former Nuns star Danny Spencer was all that separated the teams but it was enough to put the Damson Park outfit through to face West Bromwich Albion in the final.

Delighted manager Marcus Bignot admitted he’d targeted a good run in the cup and on the back of Saturday’s Blue Square North win against Workington, it means that Solihull have now gone seven games unbeaten.

“We took the cup seriously and now that we’re in the final it’s important that we win it,” said Bignot.

“We were able to give some of the younger players a run and the result shows our strength in depth,” he said.

Solihull will be aiming to take this form to sixth place Stalybridge on Saturday, particularly now they’re finding the back of the net again.

Goals from Robbie Thompson Brown and Danny Spencer put paid to Workington Town last week, the visitors scoring a consolation goal deep into injury time.

The result lifted Solihull to 13th and Bignot reckons the belief is there for the team to climb further.

“There can be some peculiar results towards the end of a season and we’re taking nothing for granted,” he said. “The spirit in the team has always been good whether we’re winning or losing and I’m lucky to have such a good group of players.

“We’ve just got to keep this going and maintain standards to sustain this run.”
