VAUXHALL Motors’ bid to beat the drop received a massive boost as they came back from 2-0 down to secure a valuable three points at Damson Park.
It didn’t look like it was going to be Vauxhall’s day when Lee Morris caught the Motors’ defence napping and fired the home side ahead after just nine minutes.
The situation got worse on 18 minutes when Tom Hannigan was caught in possession by debutant Darren Byfield who had time to entice Scott Tynan before squaring the ball for Morris who stroked the ball home into an empty net.
Motors never looked out of this game and they were rewarded for their efforts on 28 minutes when a Dave Mannix cross was flicked on by Mattie Burke and Hannigan was at the far post to poke the ball home from close range.
The Motormen dominated the second half and it was only a matter of time before their superiority would pay off.
Josh Wilson went close on 52 minutes with a well struck effort from eight yards out, however Solihull keeper Jasbir Singh was equal to it and pulled off a fine save to deny the Motors’ talisman.
The equaliser came on 63 minutes when the lively Dan Parkinson outpaced his marker but was hauled down in the area giving the referee no option but to award a penalty.
Wilson stepped up and calmly sent Singh the wrong way for his 17th goal of the season.
It was one way traffic in the final half hour of the game as Motors looked stronger in every area of the pitch.
They deservedly took the lead on 76 minutes following good wing play on the right from Kevin Holsgrove who dribbled his way to the by-line before crossing to the far post and Parkinson timed his run to perfection and slotted the ball home from close range.
