Solihull pre-match news
Manager Gary Norton is waiting for fitness tests on defenders Andy Cheetham (groin) and Leigh Everitt (knee) both injured in the midweek match against Gloucester City before naming his side.
Striker Carl Francis is named in the squad after recovering from tonsillitis, which has kept him out of the last two games.

Norton said: "We have ideal replacements if Andy and Leigh do not make the game tomorrow. Richard Wardle could be asked to fill in the right back slot with Gary White covering the left.

"This is a massive game for us for different reasons. I firmly believe that if we could put together a run like we did after losing the first four games of the season we can still get into the top seven.

"We need to be beating sides like Solihull who are in eight position and eight points ahead of us to get up there in the league table.

"The game is also important because we've lost the last two in the league and that's the first time for this set of players. You learn more about your players when they have their backs against the wall and I'm looking for them to pull together."
