Magpies 0 Havant 2


Alan Walker-Harris brings Dennis Oli down outside the area but receives just a yellow and not a red.


Dan Munday replaces Sam Lanahan with 11 minutes left.

Havant lead 2-0 and look set to extend their unbeaten run to 13 games.


Clive Makoni has definitely had an impact for Dorchester.

His presence results in the ball falling to Lanahan but with Searle stranded out if his goal he can only fire wide.

Nathan Walker then sees a header tipped over by Searle.


Nearly a third for Havant but Alan Walker-Harris makes a great save from Alec Przespolewski.


Magpies have brought Clive Makoni on for Jack Twyford and Havant have replaced the injured Scott Jones with Christian Nanetti.



Magpies 0 Havant 2

Bad news for Dorchester less than two minutes into the second half as Scott Jones scores his second to make it 2-0.

A free-kick to the far post found Jones in too much space and he converted.


Second half has just started at the Avenue.


Magpies 0 Havant 1


Charlie Losasso goes close with a long-range effort but the Magpies still haven't really tested Charlie Searle in the Havant goal.

Couple of minutes to half-time, Havant lead 1-0.


34 minutes gone and still 1-0 to Havant.

Dorchester still looking for their first attempt on goal.

Some strong tackling from the Magpies' defenders but equally poor ball control on several occasions.


Magpies 0 Havant 1

Scott Jones has given Havant the lead 23 minutes in.

Nic Ciardini cut in from the right, his shot was deflected off Jake Smeeton, and Jones dived in bravely a few yards out to head in.


0-0 with just over 10 minutes gone.

Nathan Walker was allowed a free header in the Havant box before Ryan Case headed the ball off his own line at the other end.


The match at the Avenue is under way with the Magpies kicking towards the Tesco end.


Plenty of support for the Magpies ahead of tonight's game - 10 minutes to kick-off.



Team news from the Avenue

Dorchester are unchanged from the side that won at Eastbourne last Saturday, with the bench also staying the same.

Magpies: Walker-Harris, Case, Smeeton, Jermyn (c), N Walker, Lanahan, Twyford, Gleeson, Crittenden, Byerley, Losasso. Subs: Munday, Makoni, Ward, Way, Brooks.

Havant boss Lee Bradbury makes six changes to the side that beat Aldershot in the FA Trophy last time out.

Havant: Searle, Strugnell, Cummings, Donnelly, Woodford, Harris (c), Ciardini, Atangana, Oli, Jones, Przespolewski. Subs: Newton, Ryan, Nanetti, Blanchett, Hutchinson




Dorchester's win at Eastbourne last Saturday ended a run of five straight losses, so a positive result tonight would represent something of an unbeaten run for Phil Simkin's side.

But when it comes to clubs in form, look no further than Havant, the team that has been a thorn in the side of the Magpies over recent seasons.

The Hampshire outfit may only sit 16th in Skrill South but are on an undefeated run of 12 games in all competitions - nine of those have been victories.

They are also through to the semi-finals of the FA Trophy and beat the Magpies 5-1 back in early December.

Havant line-up in last game v Aldershot

Bevan, Strugnell, Blanchett, Ryan, Monteiro, Harris, Nanetti, Atangana, Oli, Jones, Ciardini. Subs: Woodford, Newton, Hutchinson, Przespolewski, Searle.
