Solihull Moors striker Harry White has expressed his disappointment at the Moors’ 2-1 defeat to Matlock Town in the FA Trophy first round tie at the weekend.

The Moors were given a shock by the Northern League Premier Division side, as goals from defender Nicolantonio de Girolamo and forward Marcus Dinanga put the Gladiators through to the second round of the competition.

White, who scored the Moors’ consolation goal in the dying minutes of the game, felt the team lacked energy in the game, but the former Barnsley man stills feels the defeat won’t dent the confidence of the team ahead of the weekend’s huge National League fixture away at Dagenham & Redbridge.

White told the Birmingham Mail, ‘I just felt we were a bit flat.

‘Coming into the game we were favourites but Matlock came out with all guns blazing to cause an upset and they did.

‘We seemed to lack a bit of energy, and I don’t know why that was. But I’m sure we will be back in training this week and we’ll sort it out for next weekend.

‘It’s a real downer and we are all feeling low but I’m sure we will be back fit and firing and ready to go next week at Dagenham. I don’t think it will dent our confidence.’

The striker will be hoping to start the game at Victoria Road, having now scored four goals in his last two games, after also scoring a hat-trick last week against Boldmere St. Michaels in the Birmingham Senior Cup.
