FOOTBALL - Moors held to stalemate at Halifax to extend unbeaten run

Solihull Editorial 7th Apr, 2022   0

SOLIHULL Moors had the better of the chances as they were held to a goalless draw at Halifax Town to extend their unbeaten run to 14 league matches.

Andrew Dallas came closest to breaking the deadlock when Town keeper Sam Johnson was unable to hold onto the striker’s powerful effort before the loose ball was cleared off the line at The Shay.

The result means Moors sit fourth in the National League table, nine points clear of the chasing pack in the battle for the play-offs.

Halifax started brightly with Billy Waters first to test Moors goalkeeper Ryan Boot with a turn and shot straight at the Solihull stopper.

Moors responded when Callum Maycock fired into the hands of Johnson after good work between Joe Sbarra and Ryan Barnett.

The visitors had efforts from Harry Boyes’ either side of half time go wide of the target and looked the more likely team to break the deadlock.

Their best chance fell to Dallas when his venomous shot stung the palms of Johnson who pushed the ball into Sbarra before it was hastily cleared off the line to safety.

Defender Callum Howe had one final chance to grab a winner but could only flash a free header the wrong side of the post from Boyes’ corner.

Solihull are next in action away at Barnet on Saturday, April 9 with kick-off at 3pm at The Hive.
