Coming off the back of a demoralising 3-1 defeat at home to Gateshead on Saturday, Maidenhead United will be striving for a more co-ordinated performance away to Solihull Moors tonight (Tuesday).
The Magpies were narrow 1-0 winners over the Moors at York Road on Boxing Day last season before going down 3-1 at Damson Park on New Year’s Day.
On Saturday the Moors enjoyed an encouraging 2-1 win away at Eastleigh – Adil Yussuf and debutant Dan Sweeney bagging the crucial goals after the hosts had taken the lead.
Moors’ manager Tim Flowers praised the battling qualities of his team.
“I thought we showed a lot of qualities that we showed last season in terms of being resilient,” he said.
“We’ve got a lot of work to do but when you show courage and morale strength like that then they're a good bunch of lads and hopefully we can have better start to the season than we have done in the last few years.”
Refocusing on the visit of the Magpies, Flowers believes his team needed to be ready for a scrap.
He said: “We always say if you get something on the road then try and follow it up at home.
“Maidenhead, however, will have a big say in that!
“They are a quality side with a very, very experienced manager so they’re going to be just as tough as last Saturday, and we’ve got to regroup, look at the opposition and make our plans to go again.”
He added: “Maidenhead will be coming to try and turn us over and we have to make sure we are ready.”
