Guiseley game is unlikely to make Moors the merrier
Kick-offs 3pm Saturday
A lack of confidence is always a concern for teams at the wrong end of the table but Guiseley will be feeling happier after last Saturday's 6-0 success at home to Shildon in the FA Cup fourth qualifying round.
Given Shildon's status as a ninth-tier club – four levels below Guiseley – the outcome was not a major surprise.
But it will have done the world of good for Guiseley, who had been showing signs of improvement since appointing Paul Cox as manager in early September.
Since Cox's arrival Guiseley have drawn five league games and lost two but they have looked a lot more competitive than earlier in the campaign when they suffered heavy defeats at Aldershot (6-0) and Leyton Orient (4-1).
With three points separating them from safety there is work to be done but Guiseley got themselves out of a stickier situation last term – taking three points from the first 13 games and recovering to stay up by one point.
Solihull are two points worse off and have drawn one and lost six of their last seven league games.
They needed a replay and extra-time to overcome eighth-tier Ossett Town in the FA Cup fourth qualifying round and look ideal opponents for a Guiseley side in desperate need of a victory.
The Coasters are the top scorers in the bottom half and should be fresher than ninth-placed Maidstone, who needed extra-time to register a 3-1 victory away to Enfield in an FA Cup replay on Tuesday.
