Solihull Moors are winless in their last five outings, so will be eyeing a return to form that will move them back up the table. Jimmy Shan’s side sit in 16th position, six points off the play-offs with games in hand.
Despite being placed fourth in the National League, Stockport have won just one of their last six games and have failed to score in the other five of those. Most recently, the Hatters were beaten by a goal to nil away to Weymouth on Saturday.
In the Opposite Dugout – Simon Rusk
Simon was appointed as the new club manager on a three-and-a-half-year contract in January. He joined the club from Brighton where he was under-23s coach for six years, after three years as under-18s coach.
During this time, he has developed several young players into Brighton’s Premier League squad and top EFL clubs. He also enjoyed two spells as First Team coach under Chris Hughton.
One To Watch – Elliot Newby
Attacking midfielder Newby began his career as a youth player at Bolton Wanderers, before joining Barrow in 2016. After successful spells at Altrincham and AFC Telford, Elliot made the move to Chorley in the summer of 2018, playing a key role in the Magpies promotion to the National League via the play-offs in his first season.
While Chorley were unable to retain their place in the division last season Newby continued to impress, even scoring against County in a 3-0 win at Victory Park. In a season disrupted by postponements in the National League North, the midfielder still has five goals to his name so far this campaign, scoring in his last two games of the season to help Chorley finish their now voided season in a play-off place.
Last Time Out
The two sides played out a goalless draw at Edgeley Park in October.
Mitch Hancox serves the final game of his three-match suspension, while Moors will be hoping that Joe Sbarra (hamstring) has recovered to play a part in the game.
With three home games within the space of a week, the club have decided to produce a special 'Triple Header' matchday programme covering Dagenham & Redbridge, Maidenhead United and Stockport County.
Adam Rooney is the cover star and edition number 12 of the season is packed full of all the Moors content you need in your life.
