Solihull Moors welcome Stockport County to the SportNation.bet Stadium this evening in the Vanarama National League, in the second of back-to-back home fixtures.

Here’s your full match preview…

Form

The Moors are eager for an upturn in fortunes, having lost five of their last six matches in the National League. Saturday's 1-0 defeat against Yeovil Town was a close encounter, but Tim Flowers will be eyeing that end product.

Stockport are also in need of a positive result having lost their last three. A 4-0 defeat at Boreham Wood on the weekend left the Hatters in ninth place.

In the opposite dugout

Jim Gannon is in his third spell at the club as manager. As a player for Stockport, Gannon won promotion twice and made four Wembley appearances over the course of 10 years.

In his current spell as the boss, Gannon led County to the National League North title, beating Chorley to top spot by a single point last season.

Opposition key man

Influential defender Ash Palmer plays a key role in Stockport's backline and was named in the National League North Team of the Season in his first year at the club, as well as lifting the title.

He is also a mainstay in the side this season, keeping two clean sheets and scoring one goal in the process - that coming in a 2-1 win away at Wrexham at the end of last month.

The last time the two sides met

The Moors did the double over tonight's opponents in their 2015/16 National League North title winning campaign. A 1-0 home win was followed up by a 4-2 success at Edgeley Park.

Did you know?

Stockport hold the record for winning nine Football League matches in a row without conceding a goal. This ran from January to March in 2007, with Wales international Wayne Hennessey in between the sticks.
