Goals from Darryn Stamp and Paul Connor gave Gainsborough Trinity their second win in succession here at Solihull Moors.
In a scrappy first half chances were rare, but a Trinity free-kick on
26 minutes saw Terry Hawkridge pass to Dominic Roma out wide. His low, hard cross was
cut out by Singh.
Just after the half-hour mark, Trinity found their best form. A ball out
wide from Connor, found Roma on the right wing. A deep cross found
Stamp who's header landed on the top of the net. Another attack down the
left, saw Baraclough's low shot turned on by Connor, but the ball
rolled just wide.
Five minutes before half time, Trinity's Ollie Banks floated in a
free-kick but Connor's header went just wide. Hawkridge then picked up
the ball on the edge of the Moors area and drove a fierce left-foot shot
Trinity ended the half on top with Connor volleying over a Roma cross from 10 yards out.
Trinity survived a scare at the start of the second half, after Danny
Hone fouled Omar Bogle. The free-kick was forced through the wall, causing
panic in the Blues' defence.
Moors came more into the game in the second half with substitute Darryl Knights injecting some urgency into their attack.
On 60 mintues, Trinity took the lead when Drryn Stamp got to a Hawkridge
cross and his glancing header was too good for Singh in the Moors goal.
A good spell for the Blues saw another chance created by a Roma cross. This time Barraclough headed just over the bar.
another foray down the left by Barraclough saw Moors' right back Dean Bennett sent off for two yellow cards.
Trintiy were having their best spell of the game with Stamp and Hawkridge threatnening to add to the scoreline. Steve Housham then introduced Dominic Knowles to the game with goal-scorer Stamp making way.
A minute before the whistle, D'Laryea slid a perfectly weighted ball through to Connor who placed his shot to the side of the keeper for a deserved 2-0 victory.
