Solihull Moors travel to Victory Park on Tuesday evening to take on newly-promoted Chorley in the Vanarama National League.
Here's your full match preview...
The Magpies are in the unique situation of being unbeaten, but without a win. They have drawn all three of their opening games but picked up impressive points on the road at AFC Fylde and Sutton United last time out.
The Moors currently sit second after back-to-back home victories followed up the opening day draw at Harrogate Town.
In the Opposite Dugout
Playing career: Chorley, Scarborough, AFC Telford United & Northwich Victoria
Jamie’s association with Chorley goes back more than a decade, including three spells as a player, featuring a combined appearance total of over 200. Since retiring in 2014 the former midfielder has been heavily involved with the backroom setup, first as coach, before taking on assistant manager duties a year later, and finally as manager after Matt Jansen’s resignation in June 2018. He led the club to National League North playoff glory less than a year later, taking The Magpies back to non-league’s top table for the first time in 29 years.
Opposition Key Man – Andy Teague
Chorley’s captain and defensive leader. A Victory Park legend who’s risen through the non-league pyramid with the Club since signing in 2011. Voted the fourth best player to ever grace the Northern Premier League in a 2018 poll before leading the Club into the National League in 2019, his third promotion as a Magpie. He was also named in the National League North 2018/19 Team of the Season.
The last time the two sides met – Solihull Moors 0-2 Chorley (23rd April 2016)
The two sides last met in the National League North after the Moors had already secured the title. Marcus Bignot’s side conceded two goals in the final 15 minutes as the visitors took all three points.
A quote from the Gaffer
Tim Flowers: "Chorley were 2-0 up in 10 minutes at Sutton which is not easy down there.
“They’re undefeated this season – they’re lively and big. They’ve come into the league and they’re going to have a go.
“We’re going to have to lift it a gear or two to get something from the game.”
