WHO ARE THE SHOTS PLAYING?
The Shots continue their travels by making a trip to Birmingham to take on Solihull Moors. The fixture is Aldershot’s second consecutive away trip, the first coming in a defeat on Tuesday night to Altrincham. Tuesday night was only a second defeat in seven games for Tommy Widdrington’s side, and the Shots will be looking to get back to winning ways on Saturday.
In the way are Birmingham outfit Solihull Moors. Nicknamed “the Moors”, Solihull Moors are one of the newest sides in the National League, being only 16-years-old, having been founded in 2007. The Shots will be travelling to their home ground Damson Park.
The Shots and Solihull Moors met on the opening day of 22/23, but the visitors came away with all the points in a 4-1 victory. However, the return fixture on a freezing January night was a lot more successful for the Shots, Inih Effiong scoring a quick first half brace to give Aldershot all the points in a 2-1 victory on the road.
The Moors came 15th in the National League last season, picking up 15 wins and 58 points to finish 5 points ahead of Aldershot when the season came to a close. Solihull Moors did win their third round FA Trophy tie last season, but were knocked out by Barnet in the fourth round. The side also made it to the first round proper in the FA Cup, but were eliminated by at the time Football League outfit Hartlepool.
23/24 SO FAR:
As many have probably seen, Solihull Moors remain the National League’s only unbeaten side after 14 games. The side are currently in 3rd place, with 8 wins and 6 draws in the opening 14, with wins coming against Rochdale, Hartlepool, Fylde, Kidderminster, Oldham, Dorking, Boreham Wood and Ebbsfleet.
