  • The last two games have seen mixed results for Solihull beating Southend on Saturday after losing 5-1 to Dagenham and Redbridge the previous week.
  • The Bulls did play Solihull Moors in twice in pre-season friendlies behind closed doors last September.
  • Hereford won 1-0 at Solihull before losing 2-0 at Edgar Street three days later.
