OSSETT Town will be looking to cause a shock in the FA Trophy when they travel to Blue Square North side Solihull Moors in the third qualifying round today, Saturday.

Moors will prove to be tough opponents for Phil Sharpe’s men but the underdogs can take great heart in the success they have already enjoyed against higher league opposition in the competition.

Town have celebrated victories over Stocksbridge Park Steels and Barwell FC, from the Evo-Stik Northern Premier and Southern Premier divisions respectively, and they can take great heart from the results going into the trip to Solihull.

Town return to their Evo-Stik First Division North campaign with another tough game on Tuesday when unbeaten league leaders Curzon Ashton visit Stade France.
