Match Preview: Solihull Moors (H)

Emirates FA Cup Second Round Replay

18 December 2018

Blackpool and Solihull Moors will battle it out in front of the TV cameras once again this evening, knowing that an Emirates FA Cup third round tie at home to Arsenal awaits the winners.

The two sides played out a goal-less draw last month, with Moors' goalkeeper Ryan Boot taking home the Man of the Match award and Blackpool's centre-backs making some timely interceptions and blocks at the other end of the pitch. 

Now at Bloomfield Road, The Seasiders will look to make home advantage count following three consecutive victories at the stadium.

The visitors will be formidable opposition again though, given that they stretched their own unbeaten run in all competitions to 12 games on the weekend. 

Team News: 

Curtis Tilt could return to the Blackpool defensive line after missing out at Oxford due to a hip problem. Ollie Turton, who was forced off in that game, picked up a tight hamstring and may be replaced by ex-Solihull man Michael Nottingham if he's unable to feature. 

Tim Flowers' side made a raft of changes for their FA Trophy victory over Southport on Saturday, leaving several players well rested for tonight's match. The likes of Kyle Storer, Jamey Osborne and Adi Yussuf are expected to return to the starting XI. 

The Manager's View: 


Home supporters can purchase tickets for the replay from the ticket office prior to kick-off, while away fans can pay admission on the turnstiles. 

Tickets for the match, which kicks-off at 7.45pm, are priced at: 

- £15 for Adults
- £10 for Seniors (60+)
- £5 for Under-18s

Both sets of supporters will be located in the West Stand.
