King's Lynn 3 Solihull Moors 0

LUCKLESS Solihull Moors remained in the bottom three after their goal-shy strike force wasted a host of gilt-edged chances.

LUCKLESS Solihull Moors remained in the bottom three after their goal-shy strike force wasted a host of gilt-edged chances.

Had match-winner, Julian Joachim, turned out for the opposite side, Moors would have been celebrating an emphatic victory.

But for the second successive game Bob Faulkner's side were left feeling hard done by as the former Villa man showed the visitors how it was done.

Speed king Marcus Palmer failed to take advantage of a second minute chance before Moors' top goalscorer Jake Edwards hit the post after rounding keeper Scott Howie.

Joachim, at the ripe age of 34 showed his failing counterparts exactly how it was done as he spun round Lee Collins to smash in the opener.

Only four minutes later the Blue Square North new-boys were 2-0 up when Jack Defty scored from the spot after he was hauled down by Collins in the penalty area.

Darren Middleton's 20-yard free kick was tipped over the bar just before half time and after the break Palmer hit the bar as Moors were denied by the woodwork for a second time.

Edwards then had a goal disallowed for off-side on 63 minutes before another amazing miss, this time from substitute Jason Moore who failed to net with only the keeper to beat.

The visitors were given a lifeline when Defty received his marching orders for a two-footed lunge on Carl Motteram, but chances from Andy Ducros and Edwards went begging.

To top off a disappointing day, Joachim, broke clear to wrap up the game on 83 minutes.
