Birmingham Tigers mauled at Tudor Grange, AFC Solihull remain top

Solihull Editorial 31st Jan, 2019   0

AFC SOLIHULL remain top of MFL Division 3 after disposing of Birmingham Tigers 4-2 at Tudor Grange.

It took five minutes for the deadlock to be broken, Andy Matthews teeing up Ethan Hanks to round the keeper and score his second in two games for the club.

AFC continued to dominate the chances, eventually grabbing their second when a back pass to the Tigers’ keeper resulted in a free-kick – Matthews curling the lay-off into the far corner.

After the break, continued pressure earned Solihull a third and a second for Matthews.

Hamer crossed after skillful work on the ball for the striker to tap home.

A scramble from a corner led to the ball being rebounded off centre-back Stephen Mason and into the Tigers net, whilst Ishak Ibisevic saw red in the after math.

Ironically, Tigers scored twice with ten men, netting from a penalty box scramble before a defensive mix-up between Dan Wright and his defence led to a sloppy goal conceded.

The win takes Solihull four points clear at the top of the table, next taking on Village FC away in the third round of the County Vase on Saturday (3pm).
