Moors head out looking for first victory

AFTER a wobbly start to the season, Solihull Moors hope to kick-start their campaign with a win at Hinckley United tomorrow.

AFTER a wobbly start to the season, Solihull Moors hope to kick-start their campaign with a win at Hinckley United tomorrow.

Bob Faulkner's troops travel to the Marston Stadium still searching for three points after a disappointing start which has seen the Moors already leak eight goals.

They slipped to their second defeat of the season on Saturday after another defensive horror-show.

With the loss of Lee Ayres to Redditch, the Moors defence needs tightening up if they are to improve on last season's finish.

Hinckley however have started positively with two wins out of three, their latest a 3-2 success at Farsley Celtic.

Saturday saw Solihull lose 3-2 at home to Gainsborough Trinity, the visitors taking the lead after just 10 minutes through Matt Austin.

The lead was doubled when Lewis McMahon fired in a free-kick before the Moors hit back soon after.

Junior English was brought down in the box and although keeper Adam Sollitt palmed away Darren Middleton's penalty, Jake Edwards headed home from the resulting corner to give the Moors a lifeline.

The home side dominated after the break but were hit with a sucker punch when James Lukic bundled home following a goal-mouth scramble.

Edwards pulled one back with ten minutes remaining but Gainsborough held firm to claim the three points.

Following their tricky trip to Hinckley on Saturday, the Moors are back at Damson Park on Bank Holiday Monday (ko 3pm) when Stafford Rangers are the visitors.
