  • Solihull Moors v Worcester City
  • 45 mins: Thorley 1-0


Full-time. First away win in the league for City this season.


The 90 minutes are up. City are almost there.


Beswick takes the free-kick for Solihull with two minutes to go, Matt Sargeant does well to catch the ball under pressure.


City defending well but seem happy to hoof the ball forward.


Thorley sends in a free-kick from the edge of the centre circle, Reece tries a shot from distance but his effort is charged down.


The game has stagnated again, neither side can keep hold of the ball.


SUB. Solihull: Former Worcester captain Tom Kemp replaces Jermaine Clarke.


SUB. City: Greg Mills comes on for Michael Taylor. 

A bit of a delay because the man operating the numbers board doesn't seem to know how it works!


Bogle glances a header wide. That's Solihull's first effort in quite a while.


Rob Elvins lunges in on English but is not booked.


Thorley gallops forward from midfield but his shot, although on target, was too close to Singh.


SUB. City: Mike Symons replaces Danny Glover.


Former City keeper James Dormand is in the crowd. Ironic on the night Glyn Thompson is injured.


Glover flicks the ball on to Taylor and his shot is deflected behind for a corner by Danny Spencer. Thorley's flag-kick is safely defended.


Thorley bursts into the box, gets in a cross to Taylor but the striker is offside. This is better from Worcester however.


Deeney invites Beswick to bring the ball forward and shoot. The winger fires well wide.


Jermaine Clarke drags a shot wide of the far post.


Junior English, in plenty of space, fires a shot straight at Matt Sargeant.


Second-half kicks off.


HALF-TIME SUB. Solihull Moors: Dominic Langdon replaces Darryl Knights.

YELLOW CARD. City: Danny Glover.
YELLOW CARD. City: Ellis Deeney.
Fair enough Steve why baffle us with too much information !!

See 8.31pm!




Yellow card update. Deeney and Glover were both booked for fouls, Glover having committed a couple in a short period of time. With the Rowe substitution, I neglected to upload it. Hope this helps.


GOAL. City: Reece sends over a cross from the right and Thorley volleys home at the far post.


Reece lets fly from distance but that was never troubling Singh.


Glover rises to meet Reece's cross at the far post but is flagged offside. The game still hasn't got much better.


SUB. City: Lee Ayres replaces Jacob Rowe.


It looks like Rowe is carrying an injury and Lee Ayres is going to come on.


Glover plays a one-two with Charlie Reece and the striker draqws a save from Singh.


Tyler Weir breaks into the area and just fails to pick out Taylor in the six-yard box.


Now Matt Gardiner and Mike Symons have joined in giving the linesman some stick. A sign of frustration?




City boss Carl Heeley disagrees with a free-kick against his team and lets the linesman know.


YELLOW CARD. City: Ellis Deeney.


YELLOW CARD. City: Danny Glover.


YELLOW CARD. Solihull Moors: Omar Bogle for kicking the ball away. Needless caution.


Darryl Knights' corner is over the top of everyone in the box and goes out for a throw on the far side.


Nearly 20 minutes gone at Damson Park and Thorley's effort is the closest we've come to a goal by some distance.


Solihull have a corner, it's taken by Ryan Beswick and eventually goes out of play. The game is a bit flat at the moment.


Breeze tries to thread a neat ball through to Michael Taylor but the ball runs away from the striker.


Matt Breeze seems to be playing more down the centre rather than the left. Thorley is the furthest left of the midfield four.


The first plane of the evening leaves Birmingham Airport and flies overhead. Always a decent sideshow if the football fails to entertain.


The pitch is running quickly following earlier ran. That could play a part at some point.


Thorley's corner is cleared by the hosts. Bright start for City.


City win a free-kick about 25 yards from goal. Tom Thorley places the ball, sends in the shot and keeper Jasbir Singh tips it past the post.


There are four changes to the City team that drew 2-2 with Harrogate Town, chief among them Matt Sargeant replacing keeper Glyn Thompson, who has a thigh injury.

Mike Symons is on the bench, meaning Danny Glover comes back in, while Charlie Reece and Matt Breeze are recalled for Matt Birley and Greg Mills.

Solihull Moors: Singh, Midworth, Blackwood, Denny, Broadhurst, Spencer, Knights, English, Clarke, Bogle, Beswick. Subs: Kemp, Acton, Langdon, Fleet, Hayden.

Worcester City: Sargeant, Weir, Deeney, Thorley, Whitehead, Rowe, Reece, Elvins, Taylor, Glover, Breeze. Subs: Symons, Edwards, Ayres, Mills, Birley.

Referee: Guy Stretton.
