SOLIHULL Moors remain upbeat ahead of their Blue Square North clash against Guiseley Saturday.
On Tuesday night against Eastwood Town the Damson Park side were unable to recover from two goals in the first 20 minutes despite a stirring fight back, James McPike having one effort hit the bar.
The loss followed hard on the heels of Solihull Moors defeat at Gainsborough Trinity 3-0 on the opening day of the season.
However manager Marcus Bignot is remaining upbeat: “We’ve lost the first two, but we could win the next five,” he said.
“A fair assessment will be at the end of the month. There’s work to be done but you probably learn more about the spirit of our players through adversity, which sometimes is a good thing.
“I’m not one to moan and groan, I remain upbeat and positive. I can’t wait for training on Thursday.”
Junior English put Moors one up against Gainsborough with the first goal in the division, but hope soon faded and only a succession of saves by Jas Singh kept Trinity at bay.
Moors centre half Will Richards was injured before the half hour mark and substituted, forcing a reshuffle with Sam Adkins dropping into the back four and Phil Midworth moving into centre half.
However Trinity got the equaliser and then rattled in the goals to seal the victory.
Tomorrow’s home match kicks off at 3pm. On Tuesday Moors travel to Bishops Stortford. KO 7.45pm.
