MAGPIES: Dorchester go down fighting at Dover
6:49pm Saturday 5th October 2013 in Sport
DOVER ATHLETIC 1 DORCHESTER TOWN 0
THE Magpies may have lost but they certainly went down fighting in Kent at the end of a turbulent week for the county town club.
Ricky Modeste made the most of a first-half mistake by Alan Walker-Harris to score what turned out to be the winner in this Skrill South clash.
The hosts thought they had doubled their lead moments later but the referee awarded them a penalty as Tom Murphy put the ball in the net.
And Walker-Harris atoned for his earlier error by saving the spot-kick to keep his side in the game.
Dorchester rallied superbly after the interval and with Jamie Gleeson returning to the side from the bench they pushed Dover all the way.
On-loan Josh Wakefield missed a glorious free header right at the death from Aristide Bassele’s cross, but the Magpies still came away with heads held high.
