In a back and forth game, Solihull defeated promotion hopefuls Dover Athletic 3-2, writes Tom Feaheny.
"We put in a performance against a team who are once again going for the play-offs," Yates told the club's website.
"We created chances, they scored twice from their two chances.
"I told the team to be on the front foot, when we play like that, we will cause most teams in this league problems.
"We kept going, we are fully focused on ourselves if we keep playing like this we will be comfortably safe."
