SOLIHULL Moors player coach Gavin Cowan knows his side are in for a difficult match when they face Lowestoft Town this Saturday.

The ‘Trawler Boys’ are set for their second visit to the Automated Technology Group Stadium in only their second season in the National North.

Ady Gallagher’s side have only won three times away from home this season and despite Moors sitting nine points clear at the top, Cowan knows Saturday’s opponents while provide a threat.

He said: “Their league position given the quality of their squad suggests that the problem is one of inconsistency.

“Sure their results have been hit and miss but let’s not forget they have beaten AFC Fylde and Boston United and on their day are a real danger.

“Like every team that comes here, they know they have to be at their best to get anything from the match and its human nature for them to raise their game. It is a big boost for us to have Stefan Moore fit again after the injury he picked up at Harrogate.”

A busy week then sees Moors hosts FC United of Manchester who were promoted as champions of the Northern Premier league last year.

They sit on 36 points with ten of their 16 defeats coming on their travels and Cowan knows Moors will have to be at their best on Tuesday night too.

He added: “Again there have been some tremendous wins for FC United but the performances have not been consistent.

“Their rise through the leagues is impressive and emphasises the passion and belief which is the corner stone of there very existence having been formed and run by Manchester United supporters opposed to American businessman Malcolm Glazer’s controversial takeover.

“It is a massive game for us but we will prepare as we do for all our games maintaining the character and mentality which has taken us to the top of the league and focussing on each 45 minutes ahead. Psychologically we are ready for the challenge.”
