“He has trained this week and he is available to play.”

Sheridan has given the players Christmas Day off which he says he has always done as a manager.

One player who could miss the Solihull game is Robbie Weir who was substituted at half-time against Torquay.

Sheridan said: “He has still got a sickness bug.

“We will see how he is.

“Robbie was struggling at half-time.

“You have just got to be careful at this time of year and make sure no one else gets it if you can help it.”
