Leon Davies expressed his happiness as he marked his return to the starting 11 with an assist.

Davies’ right footed cross found the head of Sam Dalby in the 31st minute as he glanced the ball past Ryan Boot in the Solihull goal for the opening goal of the 1-1 draw.

Speaking after the game, Davies said: "I thought I did okay. It was a bit different playing down the left-hand side, I’ve always played down the right-hand side.

"I found I could get crosses into the box a bit easier than I can when I play down the right, but it was very enjoyable.

"I’m really pleased with the assist. At first, I thought I put it too close to the goalkeeper but thankfully Dalbs (Sam Dalby) headed the ball down to give the goalkeeper a bit of trouble.

"I’m relieved to get off the mark with an assist."

The lead was cancelled out just moments before half time when Callum Maycock was found at the far post to level the score for Solihull, who went into the game in fourth place.

Davies, however, was happy with how his team dealt with Solihull’s side.

He added: "They’re a very good team. We knew going into the game that they like to keep the ball.

"It was a tough start, but we grew into it. It’s a good point.

"We had opportunities to get all three points, but sometimes the ball just doesn’t find the back of the net.

"I also think we defended well towards the end when they brought on Kyle Hudlin.

"We were resilient and kept the unbeaten run going so we have to take the positives."

Blues, who now find themselves 11 games unbeaten, having lost just two out of their last 16 games in all competitions.

And Davies was keen to praise his teammates.

"The morale is really high since I’ve come into the club - I’ve only seen us lose once and that was in the FA Trophy.

"The place is bubbly, the staff and players are brilliant and we all know our roles going into every game. We’re executing our game-plans really well."

Blues head to the Technique Stadium on Saturday 5th March as they travel to second-placed Chesterfield in the Vanarama National League, hoping to make it 12 league games unbeaten.
