Solihull Moors 0  – 0 Wrexham AFC

In a match of few clear-cut chances, it finished goalless at Damson Park as Moors took a point off fourth placed Wrexham.

Solihull were looking to make it successive wins at The Automated Technology Stadium, after victory over Dover on Saturday, in a bid to boost their survival hopes.

Backed by a large away following, it was Wrexham who had the game’s first chance. Max O’Leary failed to deal with a corner, but Sam Wedgbury blazed over from the edge of the area. Moors responded strongly and almost took the lead through Jamie Reckord. Hylton beat his man on the edge of the area and his deep cross was headed just over by the full back.

Moors were continuing to press for the opening goal, as Kwame Thomas was inches away from connecting with a Reckord cross. Tyrone Williams was then on hand to make a crucial block to deny Scott Quigley who had a clear shot at goal.

Jamey Osbourne almost gave Moors the half time lead they’d been looking for. Tyrone Williams found the midfielder on the edge of the area, but his powerful effort went just wide of Chris Dunn’s top left corner with the keeper rooted to the spot.

The sides went in goalless at the break with Moors more than holding their own against the promotion chasers in an even contest.

In a cagey opening to the second half, Adi Yussuf struck the post in the 55th minute for Moors. Jermaine Hylton intercepted a loose Sam Wedgbury pass and played through Yussuf, but his low drive hit the post and bounced to safety. The visitors first real chance of the second half, again, fell to Wedgbury but he cleared the crossbar in similar fashion to his first effort.

The game began to open up in the latter stages, with both sides beginning to have chances. Jermaine Hylton’s pace was causing the Wrexham defence problems, and his cross was met by substitute Alex Reid, but his header was tame and resulted in an easy save for Chris Dunn.

That’s how it ended, with both sides cancelling each other out in the latter stages. It’s a big point for Moors as they approach the run in to the end of the season. With Chester, Hartlepool and Torquay all losing plus Barrow drawing, Moors are still just in the relegation zone. However, they are just two points adrift of Barrow, three behind Hartlepool, four Halifax and five, Maidstone.   

Moors are back in action at The Automated Technology Stadium on March 3rd when they in fact entertain Maidstone United – that will be another nail biter!
