Spennymoor Town vs Solihull Moors: Preview and Prediction

Solihull Moors have taken just one point from their last three England. FA Trophy matches, following last weekend’s 3-1 defeat away to their opponent. Solihull Moors are still seventh overall in the table, but the distance between them and the Continental qualification positions is slowly getting bigger. Saturday’s match at home to reigning champions Spennymoor Town should prove no easy feat either – Solihull Moors haven’t won against any England. FA Trophy leader since September 2008 and, notably, are without a win against any side currently within the top eight so far this season.

Spennymoor Town have turned around their “unconvincing” run in style over the past 7 days. Spennymoor Town dominated and humiliated their opponent with a 8-0 win at home last weekend, which also saw their striker net his first hat-trick of 2017, to become the England. FA Trophy’s joint top scorer (19 goals) in the process, before easing their way through to the semi-finals of the national cup at home to opponent during the week (3-0 win).

Spennymoor Town are clear favourites here at 4/9 with bet365, but we feel that backing “both teams to score” at 21/20 has some decent potential for the following reasons:

Most people know about Spennymoor Town and their striker, and for good reason too. He is a world class striker and currently in top form, with seven goals from his last four competitive outings. He’s also scored three goals in Spennymoor Town’s last four on the road so you’d fancy him to continue this run as an anytime goalscorer at 4/7 with bet365. However, Solihull Moors are not without a weapon of their own in French striker.Not to mention that he scored against the visitors earlier this season when Solihull Moors took a point away from Spennymoor Town (1-1 draw).

Notably, Spennymoor Town’s recent domination has in fact come from matches at home. Spennymoor Town have failed to keep a clean sheet in three of their last four England. FA Trophy away matches, including against some much weaker teams than Solihull Moors, and the added strain following their mid-week national cup match, where the league leaders fielded a full strength squad, should add even more value to Solihull Moors getting one against them.

Regarding a correct score bet, though Solihull Moors are unbeaten at home this season (W5 D5), Spennymoor Town hold the best away record in the England. FA Trophy (W8 D2 L1). Solihull Moors’s poor track record against much stronger sides, combined with Spennymoor Town’s return to goal-scoring form, means we feel the Spennymoor Townns could sneak another win here. As such, we feel there’s decent value to be had backing a 2-1 Spennymoor Town win at 15/2 with bet365.
