Form Guide

The Wood lost last time out, as they fell to a 2-0 defeat at home to a resurgent Aldershot Town outfit.

The relegation threatened Shots scored twice in the second half to secure the win and put on a strong and determined performance.

It was a frustration for Wood manager Garrard, having enjoyed a solid March, with a win and two draws in four matches.

That run began with an impressive victory over then in-form Bromley, away from home.

Wood will be looking to mirror the earlier performances in March and get back in the points.

The loss to Aldershot Town leaves them sitting in 18thplace, six points above the drop zone.

Managed by 52-year-old Tim Flowers, Solihull Moors are enjoying an incredible underdog season, defying the odds to challenge for promotion from the National League.

They have won three of their last five matches and currently sit in second place behind Leyton Orient.

The Moors missed out on the opportunity to go top of the table on Saturday, suffering a 2-0 defeat away to Halifax Town.

One to Watch – Nathan Blissett

The former Macclesfield man was recruited by Moors’ manager Tim Flowers in December and has enjoyed an electric start to life at Damson Park.

Netting eight times in just 14 league starts, Blissett has fast become a vital player in the Moors’ push for promotion.

An experienced performer at National League level, the 28-year-old from West Bromwich helped Macclesfield Town to promotion last year, as they secured the league title.

Standing tall at 6ft 5in, Blissett is an imposing presence at the front of the Moors attack and will be a handful for the Wood backline.

From the Dugout – Luke Garrard

“I need to park that now (the loss to Aldershot Town) and I need to get ready for Solihull on Tuesday evening. They come here with an agenda and a purpose to get out of this league.

“They lost 2-0 to Halifax on Saturday and they are going to want to bounce back and I can’t have it that they are coming here, and we offer up what we did on Saturday.

“I watched them at Hemel and Tim Flowers has done a fantastic job.

“They are a little bit more relentless (than Aldershot Town) and they are a little bit more back to front, but that is not to say they don’t play.

“They are a very strong outfit at this level and we need to make sure that we are at it and matching everything that they offer up come Tuesday, if not more.”
