Report

Whites remain bottom of the National League as a goal in each half condemned them to another defeat.

Nathan Cameron’s header in the first half put Solihull Moors ahead before Kyle Hudlin doubled the visitors lead early in the second half.

Dover looked the better team early on, but it wasn’t until halfway through the first half where they had their first opportunity, but Harry Ransom couldn’t connect on a good Oscar Gobern free kick, with the centre back heading it wide.

This missed proved to be costly as on the half hour mark The Moors were ahead. Jamie Ward’s long corner was nodded back into the danger area by Tyrone Williams towards Cameron who headed home.

Whites’ new keeper Ollie Webber then did well to deny Kyle Hudlin after Ward sent the 6ft 9in centre forward through on goal.

Ward then looked to double Moors’ lead after receiving a quick free kick down the line but his shot flew just over the bar.

Webber then denied Hudlin once again, as the attacker saw the Northern Irish u21 international palm away his shot.

Omar Mussa then had an opportunity to get Whites level, but his free kick went wide of the goal.

It proved to be third time lucky for Hudlin as he doubled Solihull Moors’ lead inside 10 minutes of the restart. The tall attacker found Ward out wide, with the Northern Irish international’s cross deflecting off Will De Havilland leaving Hudlin with a tap in from a couple of yards out.

Whites continued to struggle to create chances in the box, which both Ahkeem Rose and Gobern shooting wide from outside of the box.

Hanson almost got one back on the stroke of full time, when Ryan Hanson rose highest from a free kick but his header was cleared off the line.
