Solihull Moors 2-0 Harrogate Town: In-form Moors too strong for Harrogate

Solihull Moors beat fellow promotion hopefuls Harrogate Town 2-0 and in turn moved level on points with their opponents in the National League table.

Moors, buoyed by the prospect of Arsenal in the FA Cup if they beat Blackpool in this month's replay, made it nine games unbeaten with the win.

Alex Gudger gave Solihull Moors the lead when he bulleted a header past James Belshaw from a corner.

Adi Yussuf made sure of the points when he slotted in a late penalty kick.

James Osbourne was hauled down in the box and substitute Yussuf stepped up to beat Belshaw.

The defeat leaves Harrogate third, with Moors two places behind with an inferior goal difference.
