Solihull Moors make the trip to FC Halifax Town on Saturday, looking to return to winning ways after successive defeats.

The Moors are the division’s top scorers this season, however they are presented with the task of taking on a team one place ahead of them.

Here's your full match preview...

Form

Tim Flowers’ side have made a solid start to the campaign but will be keen to record another three points having lost against Eastleigh and Woking in their last two outings.

Hosts Halifax have won five of their first seven games and recorded an impressive 4-1 victory against AFC Fylde the last time they played at the Shay.

In the Opposite Dugout – Pete Wild

After working for the club for 10 years, including as their interim academy manager, Wild was appointed as Oldham's caretaker manager on 27 December 2018 following the sacking of Frankie Bunn.

He was replaced as Oldham manager by Paul Scholes on 11 February 2019, before returning as manager the following month after Scholes' resignation.

He left the club in May 2019 for personal reasons and, on 24 July 2019, Wild was appointed the manager of the Shaymen.

Opposition Key Man – Liam McAlinden

The former Wolves youngster has made a bright start to life with Halifax, scoring three goals in six games. He netted the winner from the penalty spot last time out against Barrow.

Last Time We Met – FC Halifax Town 2-0 Solihull Moors (23/03/19)

10-man Moors were beaten on their last visit to the Shay in March. Manny Duku struck early on before Devante Rodney sealed the three points with less than 10 minutes to go. It was an uphill battle for Tim Flowers' side who saw Lee Vaughan receive a straight red card on the stroke of half-time.

A quote from the Gaffer

Tim Flowers: "We'll work very hard to try and respond at Halifax on Saturday, as tough a game as it's going to be. We've took a couple of punches on the nose and we've got to throw some back - metaphorically obviously."

Did You Know?

Only Notts County and Wrexham can hold more fans in their stadium than Halifax in the National League. The Shay has a capacity of 14,081.
