Speaking about the size of his task at Solihull, Flowers said to the Moors club website; “19 games into the season and our position is tough. Nevertheless, we both have experience dealing with situations just like this and we need to instil confidence in the players.

“I have watched several of the matches and most have been “nip and tuck”. The games have been tight, but it requires a monumental effort to change things around.

“I know results have hurt everyone associated with the club, but we need to up our work ethic and provide even more discipline tactically.”
