Thorley's shot is saved by Singh, Reece hits the rebound at the keeper.
Thompson comes off his line to take the ball off the toe of Omar Bogle.
Cross from Mills is easily cleared. This is petering out now.
Three minutes plus stoppage time for two goals.
SUB. City (88 mins): Matt Birley replaces Matt Breeze.
SUB. Solihull (87 mins): Darryl Knights comes on for Dior Angus.
City (84 mins): Breeze for the challenge on Angus.
Breeze has gone in hard on Angus and players are squaring up to each other. Angus has hobbled off.
Weir sends a deep cross towards Symons but it's too high.
Elvins smacks the ball into the main stand and almost hits the press box. We promise to say nice things Rob!
SUB. Solihull (76 mins): Ryan Beswick comes on for Michael Blackwood.
Thorley's free-kick is low and under the wall but straight at Singh.
Solihull Moors (75 mins): Jay Denny for hauling down Elvins.
City are likely to spend the rest of half camped in the Solihull half.
SUB. Solihull (70 mins): Omar Bogle comes on for Gary Birch.
Birch races into the box, waits for support and then flicks the ball out of play. Oh dear.
Solihull have a corner. Blackwood with it, Birch has a shot blocked.
SUB. City (66 mins): Greg Mills replaces Michael Taylor.
Taylor has a shot cleared by the feet of Singh. A chance goes begging.
Weir's cross falls to the Taylor in the box but his first touch off his chest is too strong and the ball goes behind.
Symons chips the ball to the far post but there's no City player there to take advantage.
Elvins has dropped into the defence as City go three up front.
SUB. City (56 mins): Mike Symons on for Jacob Rowe.
A shot from Angus is brilliantly saved low down by Thompson. So close to a Solihull fourth.
Solihull Moors (48 mins): Jay Denny stabs the ball home after a total mix-up in the City defence.
It has been an open game so far and it looks like there will be more goals to come.
Firm drive by Reece Fleet is charged down by Ayres.
So, can City turn this around? What do you think? Tell me @stevecarleywn
Attendance is 653.
Some time-wasting tactics being employed already by Solihull.
Thorley finds Elvins but he can only head over the bar.
Reece forces another City corner. Can they level before the break?
City (43 mins): Thorley's corner is met by Lee Ayres, his header is saved by Singh but Taylor slams the ball over the line.
Fierce volley from Glover deflects off Pierpoint for a corner.
Reece bursts forward, does about five step overs and then fires the ball at the keeper. Looks good but finish lacking.
Matt Breeze has a shot charged down in the area as Worcester look for a way back.
Solihull Moors (32 mins): Angus fires in a cross from the right and English turns the ball past Thompson via the post.
The ball drops to Blackwood in the box and he blasts it over the bar. City were fortunate not to go two down there.
Glover sends over an inviting cross but Taylor plants his header wide of the post.
Glover gives the ball away in his own half, Michael Blackwood finds Brich and he gets to the edge of the box before forcing a save from Thompson.
Glover lines up a volley, takes aim and only the fence stops that from going into the flats.
Ellis Deeney curls the free-kick over the goal and out of the ground.
Solihull Moors (17 mins): Stuart Pierpoint for dragging Taylor down 10 yards outside the box.
City piling forward with pace time after time but the final ball isn't quite there.
Thorley's corner is powerfully headed clear by Junior English who then goes up the other end as in denied by Thompson.
Glover bursts forward, over-runs the ball but forces a svae from Singh.
Thorley finds Rob Elvins but the visitors clear. Danger averted.
Tom Thorley's corner is flicked on by Glover and headed behind for another flag kick.
Danny Glover's cross is almost turned into his own net by Keenah Rosser. The corner is punched over the bar by Singh.
Keeper Jasbir Singh blasts his clearance against Michael Taylor but the ball spins away.
Solihull Moors (7 mins): Dior Angus' free-kick is floated into the box and flicked home via the head of Gary Birch.
Solihull have a free-kick 25 yards from goal, slightly to the left.
The pitch looks good although it may cut up later on. There's a few piles of snow around the fringes.
City attacking the dressing room end in the first-half.
