Solihull Moors 2-1 Braintree Town

Solihull Moors took advantage of Leyton Orient's inactivity in the National League to move level with the leaders with a 2-1 victory over relegation-threatened Braintree.

The Moors were forced to come from behind to do so, having conceded in the 21st minute when Korrey Henry rounded the goalkeeper and tapped into an empty net following fine work from Courtney Richards.

Solihull were level seven minutes before half-time as Liam Daly headed in Darren Carter's free-kick at the back post.

And their comeback was complete 13 minutes from time, with Adi Yussuf scoring his 15th goal of the season from the penalty spot after Ben Killip brought him down in the box.
