FOOTBALL - Moors come from two goals down to rescue point against lowly King's Lynn

CALLUM HOWE’s 88th minute equaliser rescued a point for Solihull Moors as Neal Ardley’s side came from two goals down to draw 2-2 against lowly King’s Lynn.

Howe scored his first goal since October 2020, which also came against King’s Lynn, to complete a second-half comeback after Alex Gudger had reduced the deficit on the hour mark.

The result means Solihull sit sixth in the National League table, two points clear of the chasing pack, and are now 10 games unbeaten in all competitions.

Moors were slow out of the blocks at the ARMCO Arena and were made to pay for a slow start when Malachi Linton broke the deadlock on 10 minutes with a fine finish past Solihull goalkeeper Ryan Boot.

Ardley’s men grew into the game with Harry Boyes stinging the palms of King’s Lynn keeper Paul Jones from distance before Gudger headed narrowly wide from a corner on the stroke of half time.

However, King’s Lynn made the perfect start to the second half when substitute Luis Fernandez doubled the visitors lead on 52 minutes after Boot fumbled an in-swinging corner.

And Solihull reduced the deficit on 60 minutes when Gudger connected sweetly at the back post, firing in to the roof of the net, for his first goal of the season.

Moors snatched a deserved point two minutes from time when Howe powered a header into the corner at the back post from Ryan Barnett’s cross to complete the comeback.

Solihull are next in action at home to Notts County tomorrow night (Tuesday, March 8) with kick-off at 7.45pm at ARMCO Arena.
