Solihull Moors 0-0 Blackpool: Non-league side into third-round draw

Solihull Moors are sixth in the National League table

Solihull Moors will be in the FA Cup third-round draw for the first time in their short history after holding Blackpool to a 0-0 draw.

The National League side, formed after a merger in 2007, had a goal disallowed as they impressed in the first half.

League One Blackpool were much improved after the break, with Joe Dodoo and Armand Gnanduillet denied by Ryan Boot.

And both sides had chances to win the second-round tie late on, with Jermaine Hylton twice going close for the hosts.

Solihull Moors goal disallowed against Blackpool

Moors, who are sixth in non-league’s top tier and have now gone over 10 hours without conceding, have reached the second round once before – losing 6-2 to Luton in 2016-17.

The visit of 1953 winners Blackpool drew a record attendance of 3,005 to Damson Park and the goalless stalemate means the two sides will both be in Monday’s draw (from 19:30 GMT).
