Boston United 2 Solihull Moors 2
SOLIHULL extended their unbeaten run to seven with this gutsy performance on a dark, miserably wet Tuesday evening in Lincolnshire for last Tuesday’s game at Boston.
If they wondered why they had battled the elements after Boston’s second minute goal, all fears were quickly dispelled at they pulled level two minutes later.
Junior English was clattered just outside the 18 yard box. A sublime free kick from Dior Angus into the top right hand of the goal gave the experienced united keeper Haystead no chance and Moors were level.
Boston regained the initiative on 25 minutes when sloppy defending allowed Newsham a one-on-one with Jas Singh which he converted as the ball slithered past the keeper. Angus had an 18 yard shot well saved ten minutes later while just before the break English miss timed a clear chance.
Fifteen minutes into the second half manager Marcus Bignot made a double substitution bringing on Blackwood and Clarke in place of English and Darryl Knights.
However neither side looked like adding another until, in the third minute of added time, Michael Blackwood dribbled passed three defenders before with almost the last kick of the game, Jermaine Clarke poked in the equaliser to send the supporters home happy.
The result builds on Moors 3-1 win over Bradford Park Avenue last Saturday. Tom Kemp, Omar Bogle and Michael Blackwood the scorers, the latter sending in a super 35 yard strike in the fourth minute of added time after the visitors had sent everyone up in search of an equaliser.
Man of the match was Jas Singh between the sticks for another superb display.
On Saturday Moors play Hednesford Town away in the FA Trophy.
