Solihull Moors boss Liam McDonald set for tough Woking test

Solihull Editorial 2nd Feb, 2017   0

FOOTBALL: SOLIHULL Moors boss Liam McDonald is hopeful of having a full fit side to choose from for Saturday’s trip to the Laithwaite Community Stadium to take on Woking in the National League.

The two sides played out a 2-2 draw when they last met in August as Woking became the first ever opponents for Moors at home in the top flight of non-league football.

On that occasion Solihull dominated the opening and closing phases of the game but what happened in between was a stylish exhibition from their visitors of what to expect in the top echelon.

Since then Woking have struggled and have been close to the relegation zone for most of the season, which is a shock for a club which has been outside the top tier one twice since 1992.

Now managed by the vastly experienced Gary Hill have also won the FA Trophy three times, Woking returned to winning ways last Saturday with a surprise 1-0 win at Eastleigh which saw then climb out of the relegation places.

There was some transfer activity in the transfer window for Woking with Macaulay Bonne signing from Colchester United while Connor Hall came in on loan from Sheffield United.

Moors manager McDonald said: “I am fortunate to have a squad which although fairly new has developed such a terrific team spirit in a matter of weeks.

“It has come so quickly as has the mentality of winning and goes from top downwards on the playing side of the club.

“Apart from our long term injuries. I hope to have a full squad from which to choose on Saturday.”
