Match preview

The Moors are back in Tunnock's Caramel Wafer Challenge Cup action as the competition comes to the SportNation.bet Stadium. Rangers Colts are the visitors, with a quarter-final home tie against Wrexham the reward for the winners.

Here’s your full match preview…


Despite Saturday's defeat at Maidenhead United, Solihull have lost just two of their last eight games in all competitions. Four home victories on the bounce have helped see an upturn in form.

The Moors were winners at Kelty Hearts in the last round after a penalty shoot-out success, with the game ending 1-1 after 90 minutes.

The young Gers have defeated Berwick Rangers, Stranraer and Ballymena United all away from home on their way to this round of the competition.

In the opposite dugout - Graeme Murty

The former York City and Reading player was appointed head coach of Rangers Development squad in August 2016. Murty has had two spells in charge of the first team at Ibrox firstly acting as caretaker following the departure of Mark Warburton in 2017 and was then appointed manager until the end of the 2017/18 season after Pedro Caixnha left his role.

Murty then returned to his role as head development coach and led Rangers Reserves to winning the SPFL Reserve league last season.

Opposition key man - Kai Kennedy

The 17-year-old forward is a Scotland Under-19 international who came through the Rangers Youth Academy. Kai was part of last season's under-18 league winning squad which gained qualification to the UEFA Youth League.

He has been a regular in this competition for Rangers, using his pace and skill to drive the team forward. The tricky striker is comfortable on the ball and provides assists with his dangerous set-pieces and corners.
