Three and easy for Solihull as lacklustre Lions fail to roar
Guiseley 0 Solihull Moors 3
The Lions turned in an uncharacteristically flat display on the opening day of the season and got exactly what they deserved.
To say Guiseley were lacklustre would be under-egging the pudding as they slumped to a shock defeat.
However, Soilhull’s squad is packed with quality and they were on top of their game, so nothing should detract from their excellent performance.
It did not take them long to open the scoring. Left back Jordan Gough charged down the flank and drilled a shot across Lions’ keeper Steve Drench to put Moors in front in the fourth minute.
Guiseley should have levelled soon after but close season signing Adam Priestley failed to mark his debut with a goal. He took a superb through ball in his stride and danced round Moors keeper Jasbir Singh but his shot was cleared off the line by a covering defender.
The visitors ended the half very much on top after snatching a second goal in the 44th minute. A back pass saw Drench in trouble and he was robbed by Solihull striker Omar Bogle, who curled home from a narrow angle.
Lions boss Steve Kittrick made one change during the interval, and his other two as the second half unfolded, but to no avail.
The visitors put the gloss on their win with a third goal early in the second half.
Bogle slipped the offside trap but was brought down in the box by Guiseley centre back Jameel Ible.
He dusted himself down and fired the spot-kick straight down the middle as Drench dived to his left.
