Solihull Moors will have another full, injury free side when they travel to Halifax on Tuesday evening. Callum Reilly still awaits his first start for the club since joining from Leyton Orient whilst Adam Rooney will be keen to return to the Matchday squad.
Predicted Line-Up: Boot (GK) ; Clarke, Maynard, Howe, Boyes ; Maycock, Osborne ; Barnett, Sbarra, Dallas ; Hudlin (4-2-3-1)
The hosts, Halifax Town, will be keen to make it two wins on the bounce as they currently sit second after leapfrogging Chesterfield & Wrexham at the weekend and didn’t suffer any fresh injury concerns after the weekends game.
Predicted Line-Up: Johnson (GK) ; Gilbury, Maher, Bradbury ; Warren, Green, Spence, Debrah ; Warburton ; McDonagh, Dearnley (3-4-1-2)
FC Halifax Town improved their form with victory at the weekend against Wealdstone after losing two matches on the bounce against Kings Lynn Town & Wrexham. However, they have won their last five home league matches on the bounce and will be keen to make it six in a row on Tuesday.
Solihull Moors are in terrific league form making it thirteen matches unbeaten in the league including four league wins on the bounce against Maidenhead, Woking, Grimsby & Eastleigh. Away from home, they are unbeaten in their last six league matches dating back to their last league defeat in early January.
Head To Head Record
Halifax Town & Solihull Moors have met fifteen times and the fixture definitely favours the hosts who have picked up seven victories in total over Solihull. Five matches ended in draws with Solihull Moors only picking up three league wins including a win last time out.
Last Time Out
The last league meeting was back in October at the ARMCO Arena with Solihull Moors picking up a one nil victory at home to Halifax Town.
In a game featuring two sides with play off aspirations, chances were always going to be in full flow for both sides. Both sides in fact had excellent chances to score. Solihull took the lead shortly after the second half restart when Andrew Dallas produced a great solo bit of skill before setting up Callum Maycock who scored the only goal of the game. Halifax almost scored very late on through Martin Woods but Ryan Boot produced an excellent save to secure the three points for Solihull Moors.
Defeat saw Halifax Town dropped to fourth in the table behind Chesterfield whilst Solihull Moors climbed into the play off places above Altrincham and moved to within a point off Halifax.
Player To Watch - FC Halifax Town
My player to watch for Halifax Town is their striker Billy Waters. Waters will be full of confidence after securing a brace during Halifax’s victory against Wealdstone.
Billy Waters is a very prolific striker and is currently one of the top scorers in the National League with seventeen goals already this season. He will have plenty of chances on Tuesday evening and will definitely keep the Solihull defence on their toes.
If Halifax are going to make it two wins on the bounce, Watters will almost certainly have a part to play in on the evening that’s for sure.
Player To Watch - Solihull Moors
My player to watch for Solihull Moors has to be their winger Ryan Barnett. He has had a joy in terms of creativity for the Moors in recent weeks with five assist and a goal in four matches.
Barnett is a player that possesses a lot of problems for oppositions defenders despite only managing three league goals this season. He is a pacey player who has developed a brilliant crossing ability in recent months with his assists tally shooting up and he will create plenty of problems for Halifax on Tuesday.
As I said in the previous paragraph, Ryan Barnett will be a danger man for sure for Solihull Moors on Tuesday and Halifax will have to keep him quiet at all costs if they want to continue from last weekends victory.
Meet The Managers
Halifax Town manager Pete Wild will be confident in his sides ability to at least secure a vital point in what will be a promotion six pointer on Tuesday evening despite two defeats in their previous three league games.
