Half time: Solihull Moors 1 Chester 0

Afolayan’s 16th minute goal separates the sides. A huge second half for Chester and Jon McCarthy coming up. They need to be better than they have. Void of quality in this past 45 minutes.

What a chance!

Murombedzi should have buried it. Unmarked header at back post from Carter cross.


Chapell races on to a loose ball but fires well wide from 18 yards when he should have done better.

Great tackle

Jordan Liburd with a superb last ditch tackle to deny Chapell who was about to pull the trigger after breaking through.

Brief pressure

Blues manage to break after picking up loose ball in midfield but delivery from the right lets them down.


Debutant Nathan Shenton flies in wildly on Carline. Lucky to escape with a yellow.


Lynch up well to pluck a wayward Westbrooke effort out of the air under pressure.
