Match Preview: Solihull Moors (H)

Following a two week break from action, the Pitmen return home this weekend when Solihull Moors visit Keys Park.

The Moors are yet to lose in the league this season as they look to gain a place in the top five to give them a chance at a shot of promotion to the National League.

Hednesford meanwhile will be looking to bring to an end their winless run which stretches back to Saturday 3rd October.

The Pitmen’s games against Solihull over the years have seen a common trend when it comes to matches at Keys Park – the games have always ended 2-1. In 2012 Hednesford suffered a 2-1 FA Trophy defeat despite having taken a first half lead; while the following season also saw the visitors claim the spoils with a victory in the league. However, Town were able to gain revenge last season when Francino Francis scored six minutes from time to give the home side the spoils.

Manager Bernard McNally knows that a tough task lies ahead: “Solihull are a good team and are flying towards the top of the table. What we have to do is to make sure that all eleven players and the three that come on potentially are all on form as we can’t afford to be carrying passengers. Then the game will take care of itself.”

McNally is set to be without midfield duo Phil Trainer (suspended) and Tom Thorley who will be out for around six weeks following successful surgery this week on a knee injury picked up in our last game here against Nuneaton Town.

This weekend also marks the official National League Remembrance set of fixtures and as such we will be joined by members of the Staffordshire Regimental Association, Royal British Legion and Army Cadets as we pay our respects to those that have fought for this country.

The game kicks off at the usual Saturday time of 3.00pm.
