IRON TEAM NEWS

Chris Plummer reported no fresh injury concerns ahead of the midweek fixture against Solihull, meaning an almost full-strength squad to select from on the evening for manager Jimmy Dean.

Alfie Beestin (hamstring) and Marcus Carver (groin) remain out through their respective injuries.

THE OPPOSITION

The Moors were victorious at home with ten men against Torquay last Tuesday, making it their fourth league win in the calendar year for Neal Ardley’s men.

The West Midlands-based side currently sit in 12th position, with Ardley’s side registering 13 wins from 36 games so far this season.

Solihull were knocked out of the Isuzu FA Trophy fourth round by Barnet in January after defeating AFC Telford 2-0 in December of last year.

In 2019, the Moors finished second to champions Leyton Orient in the National League, registering 25 wins from 46 matches. Promotion didn’t follow for Solihull when AFC Fylde pipped the semi-final play-off affair with a second-minute goal, which eventually knocked the hosts out.

Solihull were edged out in their closest chance for promotion to the English Football League last season too, where a 111th minute goal in extra time of the play-off final scuppered their chances after initially taking the lead.
