    Think that is part of Lundy's point! We are bare up front in terms of alternatives. Brilliant signing at the back, let's follow it up with a forward and really go for it.

    We were lacking again up front on Saturday, with both struggling against a very well marshalled back line we obviously lacked options. We are basically relying on Knowles fitness and goalscoring - both at present debateable - to offer us any alternative to a young lad having an off day or a less than prolific target man.

    To me still not enough to sustain a fight for top spot, especially when you compare it with the Moors potent front line or from a leading goalscorers perspective with the teams around us.

    With the excellent run we have been on our position in the league will ensure teams are more likely to come and park the bus and as a result we will need more options to work with.

    Yes our midfield has chipped in with a very decent return but still think we could do with a Foster-esque signing up front.

    Don't think we need to panic because we didn't score on Saturday. We had a couple of shots that were deflected just past the post which, on another day, might have gone in. We just needed to get one and we would have won the game. They have only scored 27 goals but have the best defensive record in the league, so it was always going to be tight.
    Solihull Moors "potent front line" have scored an 'incredible' two more goals than us!!

    Yes they were spot on at the back, however, we didn't have an alternative. bringing Swain on when we were already struggling in the air showed that we are still lacking.
    In terms of our golascoring vs the Moors and in the context of us discussing forwards, when you remove Brendon and the midfields contribution you will find our contribution from up front is not up to par with our promotion rivals. Moors have a proliferation of goalscorers up front, we don't.
    When teams come and start playing more defensively against us in a crowded box we cannot expect our midfielders to carry on chipping in as they have done.
