TABLE-topping Solihull Moors will look to keep their unbeaten run going with back-to-back games over the Bank Holiday weekend.

Marcus Bignot’s side host Alfreton Town at The Automated Technology Group Stadium this Saturday (3pm kick-off) before travelling to Corby Town’s Steel Park on Monday (3pm kick-off).

The Moors have made a blistering start to this season’s Vanarama National League North with four wins – the most recent coming at Stalybridge Celtic last Saturday – and a draw from their first five games.

Goals from Jack Byrne, Liam Daly and Darryl Knights, his fifth of the season, secured Solihull a 3-1 victory over Stalybridge Celtic at Bower Fold last weekend, with Bohan Dixon pegging one back for the hosts.

That form sees the Damson Parkway outfit sitting at the summit of the league table on goal difference alongside Nuneaton Town, and boss Bignot wants to see his troops maintain that momentum.

“I’m very happy with the points return we’ve taken from our first five games this season,” he said.

“Like all the other clubs in this league, we now have two games in three days over the Bank Holiday weekend and it’s an opportunity for us all to chalk up more points during what has been a busy start to the season.

“These back-to-back games gives us a great chance to keep our momentum going and I’ll be delighted if we can come through this weekend with our unbeaten run intact.”

Alfreton Town come into the game without a win this season. Four draws and one loss in their first five will mean they will be making the most of two games over the bank holiday weekend.

While Monday’s visitors, Corby Town, are currently one of the five unbeaten sides left in the league at this stage with two wins and three draws.

The newly promoted side are the second top scorers to The Moors with two of the joint top scorers in Kabongo Tshimanga and ex-Birmingham City player, Ashley Sammons.

Admission for Saturday’s visit of Alfreton, relegated from the top tier of non-league football last season, costs just £10 for adults, £5 for concessions and 12 to 15-year-olds and is free for under-12s when accompanied by a paying adult.
