Vanarama Conference North
North Ferriby United v Solihull Moors
Saturday 6th September; KO 3.00pm
Ferriby will be looking to maintain their good start to the season when Solihull Moors visit the Eon Visual Media Stadium on Saturday. The Villagers have won four, drawn one and lost one of their first six games and are in second place in the Vanarama Conference North.
Ferriby Manager Billy Heath will be looking for a big response from his players following last Saturday’s disappointing defeat at Worcester City. Ferriby played extremely well for the first 20 minutes and took an early lead. They could have easily been 3-0 up during this time. After this they allowed Worcester back in to the game and finally lost to two late penalties.
Heath commented, “It was obviously a disappointing result. We played well for the first 20 minutes and had chances to be more than one ahead. After that we gave the ball away a little too easily and that allowed Worcester to come back at us.
“We need to bounce back against Solihull. We also need to remember that we have had a good start to the season and there are still plenty of games to play.”
Solihull have won one, drawn one and lost four of their opening six fixtures. They went down 4-3 at home to current leaders Barrow last Saturday. They are a strong physical side and will be difficult to break-down. The Villagers will need to be patient.
Heath’s side know they have the ability to create chances and they will be hoping that they have a little bit more luck on the goal-scoring front.
NFU’s probable squad : Adam Nicklin, Antoni Pecora, Josh Wilde, Nathan Peat, Danny Hone Matt Wilson, Gregg Anderson, Mark Gray, Liam King, Jon D’Laryea, Danny Emerton, Russell Fry, Nathan Jarman, Tom Denton, Tom Corner, Jamie Yates, Dan Clayton, Louis Bruce
