BIOLOGY student Danny Way reckons the Magpies have got the chemistry within the squad to help them pull away from the Skrill South relegation zone.
The young Dorchester midfielder is in the last year of his A-level studies and is hoping for some positive results, both on and off the pitch, between now and the summer.
He feels the Magpies need to aim for between 20 and 25 points from their remaining 19 league games if they want to stand a chance of escaping the drop.
“We’ll do as much as we can to stay in Conference South,” he said. “We’ve still definitely got a good chance.
“We’re halfway through the season and still in touching distance of the others.
“We’ve got to work as hard as we can and give everything to every game.
“We’ve got 19 games left and we need to look at getting about 20-25 points. I think that would be our target and if we do that we’ve got every chance.
“It’s a six-pointer this weekend against Chelmsford because they are not doing too well either.”
He went on to add: “There is a good camaraderie in the squad. The chemistry is good and we get on with each other.
“If someone has a problem with someone else they will speak to them constructively, which is better for the younger players.
“It’s hard with the squad we’ve got because we are limited in our options. We haven’t got the money to go and get players who can change a game.
“We have worked out how we are going to play and what we need to do to grind out the results.”
Way has been particularly impressed with the impact Warren Byerley has had since starting his loan spell at the Avenue.
“He has been there and done it all before, and he is great to have in the
changing room,” he added. “He will come round to speak to the younger
“He was playing up front with Dan Munday and speaking to him constructively, telling him what he was doing well and what he needs to work on.”
Last night’s match between Dorchester Town’s reserve team and their Wimborne counterparts was postponed because of a waterlogged pitch.
