SOLIHULL Moors and ex-Football League Boston United have met six times over the last three seasons and still the Pilgrims have yet to record a win.

Solihull started brightly and on 15 minutes Jas Singh was up-ended close to the 18 yard line as he produced the first of several match saving stops.

Moors hit their visitors on the break a minute later as Michael Blackwood put Ryan Beswick through but he blasted it over the bar.

Boston had chances through Milnes who screwed his shot wide on 20 minutes, but then Solihull turned up the heat.

With five minutes of the half remaining Singh dived low to keep out Weir–Daley and Beswick’s exquisite chip was pushed to safety by the keeper’s outstretched hand.

On the brink of half time Boston’s best chance was headed wide as their two front men both attempted to head the ball, but Moors raced to the other end as Beswick drove the ball across the goal and the unfortunate Paul Mayo turned it into the net with the last kick of the half to give Solihull a 1- 0 nil advantage. Boston were in positive mood as the game re started and a lob from the impressive Weir-Daley produced a fine save from Singh before they did get the ball in the net - adjudged correctly to be off side.

Angus headed over on 60 minutes, Bogle’s glancing header a minute later was wide as was his effort on 65 minutes from a 35 yard free kick.

Beswick then stung the keeper’s hands with a rasping 18 yard shot.

As the match ebbed to it’s conclusion Bogle lobbed Haystead from 40 yards and with the keeper beaten the ball glanced the inside of the upright and across the goal mouth to safety.

It finished with another three points for Moors, a truly determined effort full of resolute defending and spirited attacks.

The win leaves Solihull in 11th place just four away from the play off positions with 13 games remaining .

Tomorrow, Saturday, Moors travel to Stalybridge Celtic and the following Saturday host ex-Football Lague FC Halifax Town at Damson Park.
