Solihull Moors host Eastleigh at the SportNation.bet Stadium on Bank Holiday Monday in front of the BT Sport cameras - 7:45pm kick off.

Prior to the game, the official opening ceremony of the new Damson Homes Stand will take place, with former England international and Solihull-born Karen Carney cutting the ribbon. The ceremony is due to take place at approximately 7:35pm.

Here’s your full match preview…

Form

The Moors were beaten for the first time this season on Saturday as hosts Woking took all three points thanks to two early goals. However, Tim Flowers' side are yet to drop a point at home, winning all three of their matches at the SportNation.bet Stadium this season.

The Spitfires have won just one of their opening six fixtures - that victory came on the opening day against Notts County. Since then, they've lost three and drawn two. Eastleigh are yet to pick up a point on their travels.

In the opposite dugout

Ben Strevens was put in caretaker charge of Eastleigh following Andy Hessenthaler’s departure to Dover Athletic. Following a good run of results, Strevens was appointed permanent manager back in November 2018 for what is his first full time managerial role. He then led the team to the play-off semi-finals, eventually losing out to Salford on penalties.

Opposition key man

Danny Hollands (midfielder) - The Eastleigh captain is well known on the south coast having played for Bournemouth and Portsmouth, and since 2017 - Eastleigh.

He played 36 times last season and scored a sublime winner against Wrexham to put his side into the play-off semi-final.

A quote from the Manager

Tim Flowers: “It's another good game at home. There's a lot on it for us in terms of the new stand and the TV being there.

"We'll have a head count and try and win a football match."

The last time the two sides met

Two goals from Jermaine Hylton helped the Moors on their way to a 4-1 victory over Eastleigh at the start of the year. Danny Wright and Nathan Blissett got it going with two first half goals, before Hylton added to the scoreline. Paul McCallum, now at Solihull, pulled one back for the visitors just after the break.

Did you know?

Eastleigh can lay claim to their part in football history as their 2011/2012 Hampshire Senior Cup final played at Southampton’s St Mary’s Stadium against AFC Totton was the first game that featured live testing of goal-line technology – the Spitfires came out 2-0 winners.
