Shaymen need Moors points

Have your say

Town will have little time to bask in the glow of their battling FA Cup display against Charlton with Solihull Moors at the Shay tomorrow for a re-arranged Blue Square Bet North clash.

And midfielder Simon Garner, one of the stars of the televised tie against the Addicks, knows how important it is that the Shaymen approach the midweek game with the right attitude.

“Tomorrow is the most important game - Sunday was just a bonus but we can’t look back,” he said.

“We have to switch on to the league because we have been in good form in the past few weeks.

“We have two big games against teams around us and we need to get the points.

“If we can get them we can be pushing towards the top five and the play off places.”

Town will be able to take confidence from their display against Charlton into tomorrow night’s game.

“It should help,” said Garner. “It showed we can play against that level of team.

“You probably get a little more time, but when Charlton were in possession they were sharper than teams in our league.”

One thing Garner knows Town must not do is concede the first goal to the Moors.

“We have been behind a lot this season,” he said. “If we start games like we started on Sunday we will be in control of games.

“We need to start doing that.”

It was always going to be tough to contain a Charlton side flying at the top of League One.

But the Shaymen proved that, under Neil Aspin, they are no non league clogging side.

“I thought we had them on the rack and conceded a poor first goal because we had been playing well,” said Garner.

“In the second half we were the better team, creating chances, but the ball didn’t drop for us in the box.

“On another day we would have got the equaliser and possibly pushed on for the winner.

“It was disappointing it finished 4-0 but we have done ourselves proud.

“We played football, we haven’t just hoofed it.”
