ECHOSPORT talks to Solihull Moors fan Callum Moseley ahead of Tuesday night's match with Southend United.

Solihull are currently fourth in the table. What have you made of the season so far?

"In all honesty, it's gone so much better than I originally anticipated.

"Based on the frustration of last season, a new manager and almost an entirely brand new squad, it was difficult to pinpoint exactly where we'd finish - some even had us as relegation contenders so to be fourth is outstanding.

"But we've had a lot of changes behind the scenes and in terms of transfers, we've reverted back to our old way of targeting younger players rather than gamble on experienced EFL players that didn't work.

What are your hopes for the rest of the season and what do you feel can be achieved?

"Without being arrogant, I feel that Solihull should already be in the top three and I still think that's definitely possible.

"The last couple of results, 1-1 against Dorking and 1-1 against Altrincham, should have seen us gain six points rather than two but sadly that’s football sometimes.

"I definitely think we are capable of climbing into the top three, but we do need to work on our consistency.

"When it comes to the play-offs, it's a separate mini-season where anything can happen and I'm confident we can do very well and ultimately, I still think we have a good chance of going up."

How have ex Shrimpers Nick Hayes and Jon Benton been playing for you?

"Beginning with Hayes, he has been nothing short of exceptional.

"Since he came in for Sam Hornby, Hayes has been a reliable force between the sticks, keeping us in several matches and has become a very popular figure amongst the Solihull supporters, I'd love to see him join permanently in the summer.

"In regards to Benton, he had a good start trying to adapt to a new division but unfortunately suffered a family tragedy which saw him miss several weeks.

"Since his return, you simply cannot fault him.

"You can see the passion when he plays and it appears as though he's used the heartbreak of what's happened to his brother, as motivation to become an even better player than he was before and that's a true testament to his character."

Who have been the stand out players this season and who is the dangerman?

"There are several players who have really impressed me from the start this season.

"Callum Maycock is enjoying his best ever season and recently captained the England C team, while James Clarke continued to be a rock at the back whilst Joe Sbarra is back finding his feet once again after a difficult pre season.

"In terms of the two standouts for me on form, Jamey Osborne has been a rock in midfield this season and has consistently ranked as one of the division's most inform midfielders.

"It's also hard to ignore Tahvon Campbell’s form as he's contributed to nine goals in 10 matches so far this season since he signed from Rochdale."

What's the team news?

"Andy Whing is usually quite quiet when it comes to revealing team news.

"Tyrese Shade could be on the bench due to fatigue, given he started on Saturday just two days after playing for his country.

"Stearman is suspended, meaning Jay Benn is likely to play at right back, moving James Clarke back into the centre-back spot.

"Whitmore could return also which would keep Clarke at right-back.

"Aside from that, I don't believe there's any other major absentees from the squad that played on Saturday."
