FOOTBALL - Moors surrender two-goal lead against Yeovil

Solihull Editorial 17th Apr, 2023 Updated: 17th Apr, 2023   0

JOSH Kelly scored twice as Solihull Moors surrendered a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with relegation-threatened Yeovil Town.

Kelly scored twice in the space of five first-half minutes to put Moors in command only for Zanda Siziba and Owen Bevan to strike in the second period at the ARMCO Arena.

The result means Moors sit 11th in the National League table with four matches left to play.

And Neal Ardley’s side took the lead on 23 minutes when Kelly blasted the ball home via the aid of the right-hand post after good work from James Clarke down the right.

Moors were awarded a penalty for handball just five minutes later as Kelly rolled the ball into the bottom right corner to send the goalkeeper the wrong way from the spot.

However, the Glovers reduced the deficit on 53 minutes when Siziba’s first time shot went in off the right post following neat footwork from Reo Griffiths.

And Yeovil levelled on 83 minutes when the ball broke to Bevan on the edge of the penalty area who drilled an effort into the bottom left corner past the despairing dive of Ryan Boot.

Moors are next in action away at Barnet on Tuesday, April 18 with kick-off at 7.45pm at The Hive.
