Moors go in search of first win after blank Bank Holiday

STRUGGLING Solihull Moors take on Burscough tomorrow as they look to record a long overdue first win of the season.

STRUGGLING Solihull Moors take on Burscough tomorrow as they look to record a long overdue first win of the season.

After five games Bob Faulkner's men sit one place off the bottom of the Blue Square North, and have just two points to their name.

A lacklustre performance on Bank Holiday Monday saw Moors slip to their second consecutive home defeat at the expense of Stafford Rangers 1-0 following an encouraging goalless draw at Hinckley United two days earlier thanks to the heroics of keeper Danny Crane Steve Bull's side who are hoping for an immediate return to the Blue Square Premier after suffering relegation last year did their chances no harm with a comfortable win.

Stafford started positively and broke the deadlock through Dave McPherson on 16 minutes, after Theo Streete was harshly adjudged to have handled in the box.

When Tim Gould was lost to injury the Moors were unable to equalize and the woodwork prevented Sam Shilton from levelling when his header deflected off the cross bar.

In the second half the visitors dominated the game, playing with the confidence and determination of a side set on automatic promotion back to the Conference.

Danny Alcock pulled off a number of saves to keep Moors at bay but Rangers remained in control.
