Whild: Lots of work is needed if Moors are to escape relegation.

Byline: DAVID LAWRENCE mail.sport@birminghammail.co.uk

SOLIHULL'S wretched season continued as in-form Sutton eased to victory thanks to a goal in each half.

In truth, the scoreline could have been worse for Moors with the visitors having a sixth-minute effort ruled out for offside while striker Ross Lafayette and midfielder Tom Bolarinwa tormented the home defence all afternoon.

Caretaker boss Gary Whild, in charge as Moors search for their third manager of the season, admitted work was needed if they were going to maintain their place in the National League - they are bottom of the table with just 11 points from 19 games.

"It needs someone to come in now and address the situation," he said. "The players are trying as best they can but they need a little bit of help and I think that won't come so much on the coaching side but by freshening up the dressing room a little bit with some new personnel.

The players themselves conceding The first comedy of confidence Gary "If you look at the goals we have conceded today and at previous goals conceded then they are very similar. In this league you need to be able to cope with balls coming into the box and setpieces - it's what the division is built around and until you rectify that you are always going to be struggling to stay in games.

"The players are saying themselves they are conceding stupid goals. The first goal was a comedy of errors really and confidence is low when things like that happen to you.

are saying they are stupid goals. goal was a errors and is low. Whild Action from Solihull For me, that means a change in personnel but that's not easy because when you are bringing players in you need to let players go."

Sutton striker Craig Dundas had already seen a header ruled out when Lafayette opened the scoring on 30 minutes. Moors defender Liam Daly and goalkeeper Nick Townsend got themselves in all sorts of trouble trying to clear upfield, United midfielder Josh Taylor nicked the ball and then fed his striker who made no mistake from 12 yards.

Moors could have been on level terms at the break had a George Carline header not hit the upright and a more direct approach in the second half saw them launch a barrage of long throws from James Bowen into the Sutton box.

But visiting keeper Jamie Butler was rarely troubled and Sutton wrapped things up three minutes from time when Dundas latched on to a ball over the top before placing his shot beyond the reach of Townsend.

SOLIHULL MOORS: Townsend, Green (Martin, 87), Carter, Kelleher, Daly, Bowen, Murombedzi, Carline, Hylton, Asante (Afolayan, 58). Subs: Bannister, Kettle, Sammons. SUTTON UNITED: Butler, Thomas, Beckwith, Bolarinwa, Collins, John, Davis, Taylor (Downer, 87), Cadogan (Egan, 74), Lafayette, Dundas. Subs: Coombes, Wright, Jeffrey.

The players are saying themselves they are conceding stupid goals.

The first goal was a comedy of errors and confidence is low.
