Stockport County Vs Solihull Moors: Match preview, form guide, how to watch & more


Solihull Moors remained injury-free during their visit to South Wales in their draw against Wrexham are therefore likely to name a very similar team when they travel to the league leaders with Joe Sbarra particularly likely to keep his place ahead Danny Newton.

Planned composition: Boot (GK); Clarke, Howe, Maynard, Boyes; Maycock, storekeeper; Barnett, Sbarra, Osborne; Dallas (4-2-3-1)

As for Stockport Countythey will be without playmaker Antoni Sarcevic after he received a direct red card in Friday’s loss to Town of Grimsby. That means we’ll likely see a champion on loan Andy Canon take his place on the side.

Planned line-up: Hinchliffe (GK); Minihan, Palmer, Hogan, Johnson, Hippolyte; Croasdale, collar; Cannon; Bishop, Quigley (5-2-1-2 / 3-4–1-2)

Solihull Moors‘ draw against Wrexham extended their unbeaten streak to sixteen matches in the National League with their last defeat in the league against Bromley in the 2022 opener. They will definitely be keen to extend that to Monday afternoon.

Stockport County suffered their first league loss since mid-December when they lost two-to-one to chase Town of Grimsby Friday in a game where they spent the entire second half with ten men. They will be confident knowing that a win would take them within touching distance of the National League Title.

Solihull Moors & Stockport County met eleven times in total. Stockport have won three of those matches, including a victory the last time these two sides met earlier in the season. There have also been three draws between the two teams and Solihull slightly outpaced the head-to-head winner five times in the past, which should make for a very entertaining match.

The last time these two parties met was in December 2021 at the Damson Park with Stockport County win the match by one goal against Solihull.

Stockport’s Ollie Crankshaw thought he had put the visitors ahead when he headed home at the far post, but the official raised his flag very quickly to rule out the goal. Scott Quigley was also close for the visitors but his goal-bound effort was blocked well on the goal line by the full-back James Clarke. Jamey Osborne closed for Solihull when his shot went off the crossbar but Stockport finally took the lead when an experienced striker Paddy Madden converted from close range in the only goal of the game.

victory saw Stockport climb above Solihull Moors in sixth place National League and four points behind the leaders Chesterfield while the Moors fell to seventh place.

  • Player to Watch – Stockport County

For the home team, my player to watch has to be the experienced striker Paddy Madden.

Madden has currently scored nineteen goals this season in thirty-six appearances, which is an incredible return. He is a proven striker in the football league and the fact that he is even in the National League is a crime in itself.

Yes Stockport want to bounce back from Friday, Madden is definitely the man who will most likely cause Solihull the most problems and he will have chances and if he is not stopped he will score.

  • Player to Watch – Solihull Moors

My player to watch Solihull Moors must be their playmaker Joe Sbarra.

Sbarra has had a tremendous goalscoring season this term and scored the fifteenth goal of the campaign against Wrexham ok Friday and will be keen to continue its good form as Solihull move closer to a playoff spot.

Yes Solihull Moors want to continue their good form, they need to make sure Sbarra gets involved as much as possible as he is the one who can shake things up with ease.

Solihull Moors boss neal ardley was full of praise for his players after a phenomenal run that sees his side sixteen matches unbeaten and will be keen to build on that momentum.

As for Stockport Countytheir manager David Challinor will be desperate for his team to bounce back from a very disappointing loss to Town of Grimsby Friday afternoon.
