FC Halifax Town boss Pete Wild has urged his side not to let up ahead of the visit of Solihull Moors on Saturday.

The Shaymen have made a superb start to the season, gaining 16 points from a possible 21, including back-to-back wins over Fylde and Barrow over the Bank Holiday weekend.

But Solihull, the division’s highest scorers with 16 goals from seven games, could be their toughest test yet, having finished second in the National League last term.

Strikers Paul McCallum and Nathan Blissett already have eight goals between them this season, with Solihull drawing at Harrogate on the opening day of the campaign before recording four consecutive victories.

But they have lost their last two games in a row, 2-0 at Woking and then 2-1 at home to Eastleigh.

“They’re the so-called team to beat,” said Wild. “They’ve done really well last season, and we’re going to make sure our run continues.

“We go in with bags of confidence but that can’t become arrogance because that’s when you get slapped in the face.

“It’s a long season, we’re only seven games in, but let’s just keep working hard and see where it takes us.”
