The Opposition

Sbarra made his debut at the age of 18 and went on to make 49 appearances for the Brewers, scoring once. He was loaned out to the Moors last season and made six appearances before joining on a permanent basis ahead of this season.

Previous Meetings

Tom Whelan scored the only goal in Saturday’s game which saw Chesterfield continue their unbeaten run under James Rowe. A victory that was the Spireites’ first against Solihull Moors with two defeats and two draws previously against the West Midlands outfit.

Team News

James Rowe will be forced to make at least one change due to George Carline receiving a red card at the weekend.

Akwasi Asante’s Thoughts

This week the Spireites’ number nine spoke to the press ahead of the clash against his former club.

"They're a good team (Solihull Moors), tomorrow might be a bit of a different game as they're at home, we will see. I enjoyed my time there, it was the start of my professional career really. I have nothing but happy memories at Solihull.

"I'm enjoying my football, that's the most important thing. Scoring goals and not conceding, you can't ask for much more. I'm loving my time here so far."
