Wealdstone crashed to a heavy 3-0 defeat away to Solihull Moors in the National League as they struggle to maintain any sort of form.

It was an early chance for the hosts as Joe Sbarra fired just wide from the edge of the area within the first minute of play.

In the fifth minute, the visitors had a great chance of their own as left-back Jacob Mendy played forward Dennon Lewis in behind, but goalkeeper Ryan Boot pulled off a great save to push it into the side netting.

The Stones went close again in the 16th minute as captain Jerome Okimo flicked a header wide from a corner.

The hosts Solihull opened the scoring in the 29th minute as Wealdstone goalkeeper Harry Isted was caught out of his goal and Ryan Barnett slotted into an empty net from 30 yards.
