Injuries a real pain for Solihull Moors

BOSS Tim Flowers has expressed his concern over the number of injuries among the Solihull Moors ranks ahead of their National League opener against Eastleigh on Saturday.

The Moors completed their pre-season schedule with a 3-0 defeat to National League North outfit Kidderminster Harriers last Saturday afternoon.

However, not only was the result disappointing, but a number of players were forced to leave the field through injury ahead of this weekend’s trip to Eastleigh.

Danny Wright (thigh), Kwame Thomas (foot) and Jamie Reckord (achilles) are racing the clock to get fit while goalkeeper Ryan Boot is expected to start after a hip injury.

“We’ll hopefully get some walking wounded back and go down to Eastleigh and try and implement our game plan a lot better than we did against Kidderminster,” said Flowers.

“I was, until Saturday, pleased with pre-season.

“It was almost the worst case scenario, losing bodies is a problem. If we pick up a couple of injuries, we really are all hands to the pump and we picked up three or four.”
