Motormen denied by the woodwork
MOTORS fell to a narrow 1-0 defeat at Solihull Moors.
A 37th-minute Aaron Wint goal separated the two sides at the Autotech Stadium but Motors hit the woodwork twice to deny them a share of the spoils.
Solihull began the game well and had the ball in the net on the quarter-hour, Wint converting Peter Till's cross but from an offside position so the goal was disallowed.
On 19 minutes, Darryl Knights hit the crossbar for the home side with a rasping 20-yard effort, before Motors themselves hit the woodwork as Karl Noon's effort came back out off the crossbar with Matthew Williams firing the rebound off target.
Solihull's goal came on 37 minutes. Ryan Beswick played in Wint who outpaced the Motors’ defence and fired home past the onrushing Zac Jones from the edge of the penalty area.
The Motormen could have been back on level terms just on the stroke of half-time but Andy Nicholas couldn't quite turn the ball home.
The second half saw Motors press for an equaliser. They came close with Moors goalkeeper Jas Singh making a couple of good saves.
Williams came inches away from levelling the scores with 15 minutes remaining when his effort rattled the post with the ball bouncing away to safety.
Vauxhall: Jones, Fearnehough, Barnes, Hannigan, Nicholas, Noone, Noon (Rugg), Williams, Stott (Rutter), Ellams, Kosylo (Clair) Subs not used: Ellison, Davies.

It is all part of Non-League Day, as the Motormen take on former Football League club Boston United at Rivacre Park this Saturday at 3pm in the Skrill North.
Mr Bartlam added: "Non-League Day always coincides with an international weekend but in previous years the Motormen have been playing away from home.
"That's not the case this year though, and we would like to see as many new faces at the ground this Saturday for this attractive looking fixture.
"It is also National Paralympic Day in London, so we would like to invite any disabled person and their carer to this match absolutely free of charge, on production of suitable evidence of their disability.
"Let's make this a really special day at Rivacre Park."
