SOLIHULL Moors returned to winning ways with a 2-0 success against Grimsby Town thanks to goals from Adam Rooney and Joe Sbarra at the ARMCO Arena.


Rooney opened the scoring after just seven minutes before Sbarra sealed the win with a low strike on 68 minutes.


The result means Solihull move back into the National League play-off places – two points clear of the teams directly below them.


And Moors made the perfect start at the ARMCO Arena when debutant James Clarke provided the cross for Rooney’s early strike which marked the striker’s first league goal of the season.


Solihull threatened again soon after when Ryan Barnett found space on the right but could not pick out Jordan Cranston arriving at the back post.


The visitors finally threatened the Solihull goal with 35 minutes on the clock as Luke Waterfall’s header drifted over the crossbar.


And after Moors went into the break ahead – the home side would double their lead through substitute Sbarra.


Introduced in the 59th minute – Sbarra began a counter-attack after collecting the ball inside his own half before slotting the ball low past Grimsby keeper James McKeown nine minutes after his introduction.


Barnett then came close with an effort that went narrowly past the left-hand post before Solihull keeper Ryan Boot saved from Waterfall as Moors comfortably saw out the remainder of the game to take all three points.


Moors return to action against Eastleigh on Saturday, November 27 with kick-off at 3pm at Silverlake Stadium.
