Justin Donawa broke his season-long scoring drought with Solihull Moors in outstanding fashion with a hat-trick in a crushing 5-1 defeat of Yeovil Town in the Vanarama National League today.

The Bermuda forward has been an inconsistent presence in the Solihull squad, with only five starts in 16 appearances since his move from Darlington last October.

But today’s performance has given manager James Shan much to think about as Solihull navigate the rest of a season in which they are safe from any threat of relegation, but are notably on the outskirts the promotion play-off race in fifteenth position.

Solihull are back in action on Tuesday at home to bottom side Barnet and Donawa can expect that his will be among the first names on the teamsheet.

Meanwhile, Jonté Smith was an unused substitute as Woking’s struggles continued in a 2-1 defeat away to Maidenhead United.

It was only a month ago that Woking were in mid-table and dreaming of a trip to Wembley, but the March 27 defeat by Hereford in the FA Trophy semi-final has triggered a run of form in which they have lost six of their past seven league matches to sit a perilous four points clear of the relegation zone with a daunting visit to fifth-placed Halifax Town on Tuesday.

With Macclesfield Town (winding-up order) and Dover Athletic (failure to fulfil fixtures during pandemic) expelled from the league, there will be only two teams relegated.
