Fast start helps Solihull move third

Three first-half goals helped Solihull Moors beat AFC Fylde 3-1 and move into third place in the National League.

Danny Wright opened the scoring after 14 minutes, nodding the ball past an outstretched Sam Hornby.

That lead was doubled four minutes later when Jamey Osborne negotiated his way into the box only to be brought down and Paul McCallum sent Hornby the wrong way from the resulting penalty.

McCallum was involved again in the 25th minute, his long throw being met by captain Callum Howe.

The visitors responded just before half-time when Ryan Croasdale struck after being teed up by Jordan Williams.

Croasdale hit the bar and Alex Whitmore had a header cleared off the line as Fylde tried to get back into the game after the break.

FourFourTwo Staff

FourFourTwo was launched in 1994 on the back of a World Cup that England hadn’t even qualified for. It was an act of madness… but it somehow worked out. Our mission is to offer our intelligent, international audience access to the game’s biggest names, insightful analysis... and a bit of a giggle. We unashamedly love this game and we hope that our coverage reflects that.
