Salford City moved up to fourth in The National League with a 2-0 win against fellow promotion hopefuls Solihull Moors at The Peninsula Stadium.
After a goalless first half, second half goals from Liam Hogan and Matt Green secured a third win this week for The Ammies while there was a third consecutive clean sheet at the other end.
After the game, manager Graham Alexander was delighted with an excellent week, which keeps Salford’s ambitions this season alive.
“[It’s] really important if we want to get back into contention at the top end of the table.
“I think it’s been an excellent week for the club, the players especially deserve every credit because we’ve had a disappointing winter as we all know but the last week has been three real tough challenges, and to come out of it with maximum points and zero goals conceded should give everyone at the club a massive lift and put us back into the picture.”
The captain scored his first goal of the season, heading in Devonte Redmond’s cross 10 minutes into the second half.
Forward Green scored his first goal since finding the back of the net against Leyton Orient at The Peninsula Stadium on New Year’s Day, and says that momentum at this stage of the season is crucial.
