Story Of The Match
Solihull Moors started the game much stronger of the two sides as you would expect and they took the lead after just seven minutes with the games first effort. There was a shot from Ryan Barnett which was spilled by Askew and the rebound fell perfectly to the unmarked Andrew Dallas who side-footed it home.
Solihull continued to pile on the pressure shortly after firstly through Danny Newton but his edge of the box effort was blocked by De Havilland and then Kyle Storer let fly from distance but it went narrowly wide of the target.
The pressure continued well into the first half with Ryan Barnett doing well before seeing his effort saved by Askew. Danny Newton also had two close range headers which failed to hit the target.
However, the first half ended with the home side thinking they’d equalised when Mason-Clark converted from close range but the assistants flag went up very early for offside.
HALF TIME - BARNET FC 0-1 SOLIHULL MOORS
Barnet started the second half much better of the two sides with Mason-Clark looking very lively as he again found space but couldn’t keep his effort down. Then, a corner found Ben Richards-Everton but his effort was blocked.
Adam Marriott had the next effort on goal again for Barnet but he headed over the bar.
All of those missed opportunities came back to bite the hosts when Solihull Moors made it two with five minutes to play. Some brilliant work from Ryan Barnett allowed him to put a ball into the box which was put through his own net by Ben Richards-Everton from close range.
Joe Sbarra almost made it three for Solihull after some brilliant work from fellow substitute Kyle Hudlin but his shot was saved by Askew and right at the end, Lois Maynard also had an effort for the Moors but it went wide of the target.

Man Of The Match
Unlike previous Solihull games, this time the man of the match didn’t speak for itself so I am going to go with Ryan Barnett. Once again he provided an assist for a goal and he continued throughout the game to be positive and great some vital chances as he has done all season and he was unlucky not to grab a goal on Saturday.
Where Does This Leave Both Sides?
Defeat for Barnet sees them lose two on the bounce conceding a combined eight goals which leaves them down in seventeenth and currently are thirteen points clear with seven games to go.
The victory for Solihull Moors extends their unbeaten run to fifteen league matches and makes it four wins in their last five league games. This leaves Solihull fourth after both Halifax & Wrexham win as well.
