Match Report

Bromley v Solihull Moors


The headline news prior to kick-off was the inclusion of new loan signing Ryan Barnett in the starting line up.

Having only arrived at the club on Thursday, Barnett found himself on the teamsheet, slotting in on the right of a midfield diamond.

Callum Maycock made way as did Nathan Cameron, with Tyrone Williams regaining his place in the side.

The defender making his return after serving a one-match ban following his dismissal against Stockport County.

After impressing on his league debut, Reiss McNally retained his place in the defence.

Maycock took his place on the bench alongside Cameron Archer and Justin Donawa, Kyle Hudlin missing out.


Early on, Jordan Cranston’s free-kick called Bromley keeper Mark Cousins into making a save down to his right after the ball had ricocheted off Byron Webster.

A positive start from Moors, Jamie Ward’s sweetly hit diagonal ball found Adam Rooney in behind the Bromley back four but Chris Bush recovered well to snuff the striker out.

Barnett on the right had enjoyed a promising start, linking well with Cameron Coxe and looking to cause danger by driving at the home defence at every opportunity.

As for the hosts, they looked threatening from set-pieces. Moors were forced to deal with the aerial ball in the opening stages.

At the other end of the pitch, the lively Barnett found Rooney who turned it onto Jamie Ward but as he looked to pull the trigger, the defender got across to block.

On his debut for the Moors, Barnett was making a very good impression. The winger whipped in a deep cross from the byline but Mitch Hancox coming onto it, scuffed his effort wide.

The Ravens continued to look a danger from set-plays, Frankie Raymond’s speculative effort warmed the hands of keeper Ryan Boot.

A pause in play halted the first half, as Courtney Duffus required medical attention following a coming together with Williams, the Bromley striker suffering a blow to the face.

After a lengthy delay, the game resumed and Duffus was able to carry on. Moors had the next chance, Barnett again the creator but his pull-back couldn’t find Rooney in the area.

The stoppage in play led to seven minutes of injury time, in which Duffus had two big chances to hand Bromley the lead.

First, the striker miscued a free header, then after confusion in the Moors backline, he was one-on-one with Boot, but the keeper closed the angle and Duffus whipped his shot wide.

It was a heart in the mouth moment for Moors but one which they survived and it was then time for Yates' men to threaten.

Barnett, who had been very impressive, saw his cross only partially cleared, it dropped to Ward on the edge, he fizzed his shot in but it was deflected wide.

It was the last action of the half. One where both teams had experienced nearly moments but neither had managed to successfully break the deadlock.

HT: Bromley 0-0 Solihull Moors

Just after the restart, Jack Bridge tricked his way into the area, getting to the byline, but McNally was able to read the danger and cleared for Moors.

Then at the other end, Barnett again got down the right and delivered well but Joe Kizzi on the stretch beat Hancox to the header.

Ward then stole the ball in a dangerous area, he drove at the Bromley defence but his square pass missed it’s intended target of Barnett and the move faded out.

At the other end, Bridge was causing trouble for Moors. He looked to have got the better of Cranston but the defender got a toe to the ball just in time.

Moors introduced Justin Donawa with just under 20 minutes remaining as Yates looked to tweak his side’s attacking threat.

And Donawa made an instant impact. He collected Coxe’s ball well and with his back to goal, he drew a foul from Kizzi on the edge of the box.

Ward stepped up to drill the free-kick hard and low, but the Bromley wall stood up to it.

Moments later, McNally was called upon to make a great last-ditch tackle on Bridge as the Bromley midfielder shaped to shoot.

But then from the resulting corner, Raymond’s delivery was dangerous and steaming in at the back post, Kizzi nodded home.

A setback for Moors who with just over 10 minutes remaining, had it all to do to find a way back into the game.

Donawa saw a header fly just over the bar before Ward unleashed a fierce shot from the edge of the area, which a sprawling Cousins did brilliantly to save.

It was the last chance for Yates' side. Moors losing out to Bromley by a 1-0 scoreline for the second time in the league this season.
