A TRIP to Norfolk lies ahead for Solihull Moors as they prepare to banish their away-day demon and pick up three precious points at Kings Lynn tomorrow (3pm).

A TRIP to Norfolk lies ahead for Solihull Moors as they prepare to banish their away-day demon and pick up three precious points at Kings Lynn tomorrow (3pm).

Bob Faulkner's men have picked up just four points out of a possible 21 on their travels, scoring only three goals along the way.

But the tough talking veteran boss is hoping for a win tomorrow against the Blue Square North newboys who he feels are there for the taking.

"We want a win to push us up the table. "Whenever you draw a game, you immediately look for three points to make up for it, and I'm hoping for that on Saturday.

"We know their home form is not that good so a positive display could help us make up for not killing off the game against Harrogate."

Moors were unlucky not to pick up a fourth consecutive home win as they drew 1-1 with their high-flying visitors last week.

A well-worked move down the left saw Carl Motteram cut inside and cross for Jake Edwards who glanced in a near post header on 19 minutes.

Just minutes later wing wizard Darren Middleton rattled the bar with a long range effort as the home side took full control of the early stages.

However, on the half hour mark Harrogate equalised against the run of play when Nathan Peat curled in a free-kick.

Determined to get back into the lead Moors continued to attack and both Edwards and Liam Daly had chances to put the hosts back ahead before half time.

But it wasn't to be as Peter Faulds missed a good chance before Jason Moore was denied in the 80th minute by a fine save.
