Date: Saturday 19 March 2016\r\n\r\nCompetition: Vanarama National League North\r\n\r\nKick-Off: 15:00\r\n\r\nLocation: Whaddon Road, Cheltenham\r\n\r\nGloucester City will look to pick up their first win in five games when they welcome league leaders Solihull Moors to Whaddon Road.\r\n\r\nThe Tigers have picked up three points from their last five matches, although Tim Harris believes this is not an accurate reflection on performances.\r\n\r\nHarris said “”We might not have won in five games, but our performances have deserved more than three draws and two defeats, especially with the players we’ve had out.\r\n\r\n“At Stockport we had about 10 efforts at goal to their one in the first half and the scoreline definitely flattered them.”\r\n\r\nSolihull were beaten at home by FC United of Manchester on Tuesday evening, but still maintain a nine point gap at the top of the National League North table.\r\n\r\n”They have a big squad, they are physically very strong and they have a considerable goal threat,” Harris said.\r\n\r\n”We have done well this season and conceded only 38, which is the same number as Solihull, but we haven’t done so well at the other end.\r\n\r\n”We have not had a settled forward line, but it looks strong now so hopefully we can secure the two wins we need to make sure.”\r\n\r\nThe opponents: \r\n\r\nTo read more on Saturday’s opponents Solihull, visit their Wikipedia page.\r\n\r\nTeam news: \r\n\r\nCity will welcome back three key members of the squad for the visit of Solihull.\r\n\r\nBilly Jones is back after missing last week for the birth of his new baby girl Quinn – we would like to send our congratulations to Billy and his wife Tiffany.\r\n\r\nTom Webb is available for selection after he missed the trip to Stockport County due to family commitments.\r\n\r\nLuke Hopper will be in line for a starting place having recovered from an ankle problem, having played 20 minutes as a substitute at Stockport.\r\n\r\nBobbie Dale is also available after recovering from a head injury sustained against Chorley.
