Lions await Solihull visit

By Tom Swallow

After three Vanarama Conference North wins in eight days, Guiseley are back at Nethermoor on Tuesday for the visit of Solihull Moors.

Moors sit fourth in the league, a place behind the Lions, with Tuesday’s visitors in impressive form, having lost only once in their last eight games and winning on six of those occcasions.

Moors also boast the league’s top goalscorer in Omar Bogle – who has already found the net fourteen times this season – although the striker is in England C action at The Shay on Tuesday and will not feature.

However, the league’s second-highest scorer, Adam Boyes, will probably lead the line for Mark Bower, having capped Saturday’s 3-1 win over Gloucester City.

His strike partner for that game, Oli Johnson, has also been in impressive form, helping his team move to within four points of league leaders Barrow.

Bower is eager for his in-form team to take confidence into Tuesday’s clash, despite warning of the threat Solihull will pose.

“They’re a really good side who are always well organised”, he said.

“They operate with quite a small squad and you usually come up against the same sort of nucleus of the squad year-in, year-out and they’re very well drilled.

“They’ll look to hit you on the counter-attack as well, so it’ll be a difficult game, but the lads have got to go into it with the confidence that we’ve started to show in the last couple of games.

“We’ve moved the ball about, created chances – we’ve got to do that again and if we can there’s no reason we can’t go out and get a good result.”
