After two wins and a draw in their last three outings, Solihull Moors head to Boreham Wood with confidence and now look to end a run of five winless games on the road.

Three points could see the Moors leap into the play-off places in the MANarama National League.

Here's your full match preview...

Form

Hosts Boreham Wood sit in 13th place after an up and down start to the campaign. However, they will have taken great pride from coming away from Woking with three points last weekend. They've won three of their last five fixtures.

As previously mentioned the Moors are unbeaten in their last three having halted a run of six games without a league victory.

In the Opposite Dugout – Luke Garrard

The 34-year-old has been in charge at the Wood since 2015, which made him the youngest boss in all of England's top five divisions.

In the 2017/18 FA Cup, Boreham Wood beat Football League opposition for the first time, defeating Blackpool 2–1 at home in the first round. In the second round they lost 3–0 at Coventry City. The club went on to finish fourth in the National League at the end of the season, qualifying for the play-offs. After beating AFC Fylde 2–1 and Sutton United 3–2, they lost 2–1 to Tranmere Rovers in the Wembley final under Garrard.

Opposition Key Man – Tshimanga Kabongo

The 22-year-old striker is in red hot form this season, having scored 10 goals already which makes him the National League's top scorer. He's hit a brace in three of his last five outings.

Last Time We Met - Boreham Wood 2-2 Solihull Moors, 26/03/19

Idris Kanu grabbed a late equaliser to dent Moors' National League promotion push back in March.

Nathan Blissett opened the scoring in the ninth minute, before Ralston Gabriel nodded home the rebound after David Stephens' powerful header was cleared off the line from a Keiran Murtagh corner.

The Moors thought they won it in the 70th minute when Jermaine Hylton beat his marker before drilling a low cross for Adi Yussuf to tap in from close range for his 20th goal of the season.

But Kanu thumped home Femi Ilesanmi's cross with two minutes remaining to salvage a late point for the hosts.
