Daly targets Moors start

TOWERING defender Liam Daly looks likely to make his second appearance for Solihull Moors tomorrow as Bob Faulkner aims to tighten up his defence.

TOWERING defender Liam Daly looks likely to make his second appearance for Solihull Moors tomorrow as Bob Faulkner aims to tighten up his defence.

The 6ft 4in centre-back has been restricted to just one appearance since his move from Redditch after being cup-tied for Moors' last two games.

But after blasting his side's defending in the last outing against Rugby Town, Faulkner has hinted that Daly could come into the fold on Saturday.

"He deserves his chance after sitting out the last few games, but I've told him he needs to improve on the Southport game," said Faulkner.

"He's a big lad and he must use that to his advantage. Against Southport he was watching balls come into the box so he's got to be more dominant."

And the former Birmingham City Academy player is ready to step up the challenge after insisting that he has come here to play games, not sit on the bench.

"I can't wait to get going," said Daly who watched from the stands on Tuesday.

"We need to start picking up points and move ourselves away from the relegation zone.

"Hopefully I can help by keeping clean sheets. After moving to Redditch from Southern Premier league side Corby, Daly formed an impressive partnership with new Kettering signing Exodus Geohaghan.

He also played alongside former Moors stopper Lee Ayres for the few games that he started in the current campaign.
