FOOTBALL - Solihull Moors remain unbeaten after York draw

SOLIHULL Moors stretched their unbeaten run to 13 matches following an entertaining 2-2 draw with York City.

The visitors levelled the game early in the second half through Callum Maycock’s goal before Josh Kelly put Moors ahead just past the hour mark.

However, Maziar Kouhyar equalised for York with 11 minutes left to play after Thierry Latty-Fairweather opened the scoring shortly before half time at the LNER Community Stadium.

And the result means Moors sit third in the National League table, five points behind leaders Chesterfield.

York broke the deadlock on 43 minutes when Latty-Fairweather fired home past Moors keeper Tommy Simkin after the latter initially denied Dipo Akinyemi from close range.

However, the visitors equalised two minutes into the second half as Maycock somehow squeezed a shot into the bottom right corner to score his second goal in as many games.

Soon after, Moors almost completed a quickfire turnaround as York stopper Ryan Whitley saved Mark Beck’s header at the near post from Kade Craig’s cross.

And Moors eventually took the lead on 66 minutes when Kelly’s superb header at the near post from Joe Newton’s cross looped into the right corner of the goal.

However, Neal Arrdley’s York side drew level on 79 minutes as Kouhyar’s low effort went through a crowd of bodies and into the bottom left corner.

Moors pushed for a winner late on as Gus Mafuta saw a powerful goalbound effort blocked as Andy Whing’s men extended their unbeaten start to the campaign.

Solihull are next in action at home to Rochdale on Tuesday, October 3 with kick-off at 7.45pm at the ARMCO Arena.
