FOOTBALL - Moors earn impressive point at Boreham Wood

Solihull Editorial 15th Feb, 2023 Updated: 15th Feb, 2023   0

JAMEY Osborne came off the bench to earn Solihull Moors their first league draw since November as Neal Ardley’s side battled to a 1-1 draw at Boreham Wood.

Substitute Osborne netted a superb volley to cancel out Chris Bush’s opener at Meadow Park with Moors unable to find a winner in and end-to-end affair.

The result means Moors sit 12th in the National League table, four points outside of the play-off places.

After an even start, Moors fell behind on 21 minutes as Bush rose highest to head home Josh Rees’s excellent corner.

And Solihull goalkeeper Ryan Boot made a crucial stop at the end of the first half to spare Callum Howe’s blushes having twice denied former Moors player Danny Newton earlier on.

However, the introduction of Osborne at half time sparked Moors into the life as the midfielder fired a sensational volley into the right corner of the goal on 49 minutes from the edge of the penalty area.

And Moors were indebted to Boot thereafter as the Solihull stopper made a double save to deny Danny Newton and George Broadbent before he made a late stop from a corner to earn the visitors a point.

Solihull are next in action at home to Chesterfield on Saturday, February 18 with kick-off at 3pm at the ARMCO Arena.
