That's a really good following for a game we were expected to lose, well done to everybody that made the effort.

87....more like 187
Nowhere near 187. No idea how you came up with that!

Anyone know why Kings Lynn have gone to ET and not a replay?
Its up to the clubs.

I would have thought it would be in the cup rules?

The rules are that it’s up to the clubs. You’ll have a replay unless you agree to finish on the day.

Personally I think it should be standardised across the board that all Trophy games end on the day. I don’t agree with some matches finishing one way, and others going to a replay.

Any chance of extending the loan of Lambert at least for the replay? Great to see Hatfield getting amongst the goals. Should boost his confidence & encourage the other midfielder to polish their shooting boots.

87 sounds right for the away following as it looked more so I counted them.

Solihull really tried to win the game so full credit to the lads.Get a couple or three players back from injury and a couple of signings and we have a great squad.

Think the crowd of 500 a bit optimistic unless they included the 50 stewards, nearer 300 crowd with 87 from Darlo about right. There were some strong challenges from both sides and believe solihull should have gone down to 10 men ref bottled most things and linemen spectators.
My MOTM was liddle he was bullied, fouled tripped by the big lump Blisset and their RB diving but he never gave up.
Elliot looked good in goal and deserves a longer run after Wednesday; both our goals class finishes .
Negatives Donawa was non existent and Campbell really lacking confidence and had two gilt edge chances at the end to win it and bottled both. definitely need a striker not another midfielder.

Agree with all of this.

Solihull are a huge, dirty, bullying side (but effective nevertheless) and I was pleased that the side trying to play football came away with their reward.

In the replay, we have to accept that we are not going to win the hoofball challenges - but we MUST win the second ball from their flick ons. If we do that then we can beat them. The problem, of course, is their set-pieces where we are on a wing and a prayer.

I thank God I don't have to watch Solihull every week - they are enough to make any football fan give up on the game.

The replay should favour us really. Blackwell is a big pitch and decent surface. We can outplay them on it.
