York City vs Solihull Moors National League Prediction

On Tuesday, National League playoff hopefuls Solihull Moors will travel to York to take on the Minstermen. David Webb just bought a new team, but they are already five points behind their opponents, even though they have played two fewer games.

They will hopefully win consecutive league games for the second time this season. Meanwhile, The Moors need a victory to keep their hopes of playing in League Two next season alive.

Our Match Preview: York City vs Solihull Moors

York City has had a mixed bag of results recently, despite a promising start to life in the fifth tier of English football following promotion from the National League North last season.

Despite losing Fraser Kerr to a red card just after the hour mark, the Minstermen still managed to beat Woking 2-0 on the road due to goals from Sam Sanders and Lenell John-Lewis.

York City earned a respectable point last weekend against automatic promotion contenders Wrexham thanks to Manny Duku’s strike in the 92nd minute.

Before their impressive draw against Phil Parkinson’s team, York City had lost 1-0 to Dorking Wanderers in their penultimate encounter of November.

Fans of the Minstermen will be hoping for a more promising series of results during the holiday season after their team won only one of 10 matches (in all competitions).

This weekend’s 3 pm start between Solihull Moors and Aldershot at Damson Park was postponed owing to a frozen surface, and the game will now be contested later in the season.

After being winless in their previous six league matches, Neal Ardley’s team finally broke their skid with a 2-1 victory against Oldham Athletic at the start of December, thanks to goals from Joe Sbarra and Andrew Dallas.

The West Midlands team will go to York Community Stadium full of optimism after re-entering the National League playoff picture. After 15 years as a club, they’d want to make it to the Football League.

Only the most recent meeting in August ended in a 1-1 tie. Thus Tuesday’s game will be only the second time these two teams have faced one other since York City won 2-1 in April 2017.

David Webb will make at least one change due to Fraser Kerr’s impending three-match ban; Webb missed the win against Woking after being hospitalized throughout the week. Nathan Thomas is the most probable benefactor of Kerr’s suspension.

Having played the last 20 minutes of Saturday’s game, Scott Burgess might replace Kingsley James in the starting lineup.

Despite a scare during Solihull Moors’ FA Cup first-round replay loss to Hartlepool United, Jamey Osborne is poised to start once again.

Andy Dallas leads the National League in goals with nine, and Josh Kelly will continue to spearhead The Moors’ attack.

  • York City Predicted Starting Lineup: Kouogun, Kerr, Rose, Whittle, Pybus, Hancox, Sanders, John-Lewis, Dyson, Duckworth, James.
  • Solihull Moors Predicted Starting Lineup: Clarke, Coker, Boot, Jones, Gudger, Sbarra, Osborne, Storer, Barnett, Kelly, Dallas.

Our Expert Prediction: York City 1-2 Solihull Moors

Neil Ardley’s Solihull Moors should have just enough to beat York City in a close game at the York Community Stadium. The Moors may be legitimate playoff candidates by the conclusion of the regular National League season.
