CONOR Stroud gives us the low-down on Saturday's visitors to The Lamb, Solihull Moors FC...
It’s definitely a case of ‘Where have we met before?’ when the League leaders Solihull Moors will travel to The Lamb this Saturday, which is sure to be a cracker.
Most recently, Darren Byfield played for Tamworth as player-coach, and is now occupying that same job at The Autotech Stadium. As for the other familiar faces, a host of players made the move from local rivals Nuneaton Town to The Moors, including Gaz Dean, James Armson, Adam Walker and Andy Brown to name a few. In fact, before August’s late late show against Nuneaton, Tamworth’s last home game against Nuneaton saw another current Solihull man, Gavin Cowan, sent off against The Lambs.
Goalkeeper Tony Breeden was another to have plied his trade for both sides, having featured in both of The Lambs wins against Solihull Moors last season.
Against The Lambs
Last season Tamworth had an excellent record against Solihull, beating them twice in the festive double-header.
On Boxing Day, The Lambs won 2-0 at The Autotech Stadium, with goals from Kayden Jackson and a Liam Daly own goal. In the home tie on New Years Day, the match looked to be heading for a draw until a double from skipper Paul Green and a goal from Dave Hibbert gave The Reds a 3-1 victory.
Last time out
On Tuesday they were beaten 1-0, in an FA Cup replay against Worcester City, with a stoppage time Lee Hughes winner. However, in the League, they are yet to be beaten and are sitting on top of the Vanarama National League North after 11 games.
