Magpies reserves going for two in a row
DORCHESTER Town Reserves will be looking for more of the same on Tuesday night when they welcome AFC Portchester to the Avenue in the Wyvern Premier League (7.45pm).
A 3-0 win at Fleet Town last week helped blow away the cobwebs after playing a little more than a game-and-a-half in the previous four months.
And after the abandonment of the last home fixture against Winchester City, Magpies’ boss Dave Kiteley will just be glad to see Tuesday's encounter go the full distance as his men try to catch up on much-needed game time.
“The lads did surprise me a bit at Fleet,” he said. “I thought they might be rusty after a long lay-off but they excelled themselves.
“The opposition will be a bit different this time. We played them earlier in the season and got turned over 3-0 but that scoreline was a bit harsh on us.
“They battered us for the first 20 minutes but we grew into the game and got stronger but couldn’t take our chances and they were more clinical.
“It will be a difficult game because they are a strong and physical side with a good blend of experience and youth.
“I think the oldest player we have is 20 and the rest are 16, 17 or 18.
He went on: “Danny Way and Calvin Brooks will be involved and Aston Butcher is back in the squad after missing the last game because of work commitments.”
Portchester are third in the table, six points behind second-placed Moneyfields, while Dorchester are ninth out of the 13 clubs but have games in hand on every other team in the division.
