The replay between FC Halifax Town and Solihull Moors will take place on Tuesday after the two sides drew 2-2 on Saturday.

One player we didn’t look at before Saturday’s game was Nathan Blissett.

The big striker scored the second goal of the game at the weekend to double the lead for Tim Flowers’ side. The ball came into the box from Matt Stenson and Blissett lost his man in the box to finish into an empty net.

Typical of the 28-year-old, he found himself in good positions throughout the game and gave Halifax centre-backs, Matty Brown and Nathan Clarke a good battle throughout the whole 90 minutes.

Blissett only signed for Solihull at the end of December after he moved on loan from Macclesfield. Blissett scored five times for the Silkmen last season as they won promotion to League 2.

So, he’s got experience at this level, and he certainly demonstrated that on his first game for Solihull. He got off to the dream start scoring two on his debut against Chesterfield. The man from West Bromwich then scored another in a 4-1 home win against Eastleigh.

The former Macclesfield man is experienced at other levels of football too. He’s played for Tranmere Rovers, Bristol Rovers, Cambridge United and Plymouth Argyle.

Nathan has a famous uncle as well, Luther Blissett. The former forward had a lengthy career notably playing for Watford, AC Milan and England.
