BISHOP'S STORTFORD 1 MAGPIES 1
So close yet so far for the Magpies as they just fail to hold on to their lead.
But a point is a point at the end of the day and they really have to look at getting something from every game from now until the end of the season.
BISHOP'S STORTFORD 1 MAGPIES 1
Michael Richens levels for the hosts with just three minutes left.
The last few minutes of a match you're winning 1-0 are bloody nailbitiing, whether you're there in person or not. #WeAreDorch— @Ian_Evans 11 March 2014
Full time result in from the Western League Premier Division where, from being 3-1 up, Bridport have drawn 3-3 against Bishop Sutton.
Two points dropped for the Bees and Chris Luke was sent off before the end.
Jake McCarthy comes on for Ashley Yeoman, so looking like it's not going to be anything too enterprising from the Magpies now with an extra defender on.
Appeals from the hosts for a penalty waved away and Alan Walker-Harris saves well from Church.
Bishop's Stortford have made a triple change with Akurang, Baker and Fagbohun on for Woodall, Enver-Marum and McNaughton respectively.
Bishop Sutton have closed the gap to 3-2 now against Bridport with 65 minutes on the clock.
BISHOP'S STORTFORD 0 MAGPIES 1
Great start to the second half for the Magpies as Nathan Walker gives them the lead from a free-kick.
Piiiiiiiiiiieeeeeeeeeesssssssss. Phil's inspirational words have done the trick. Clean sheet now lads, come on. #WeAreDorch— @Ian_Evans 11 March 2014
Encouraging noises coming out of Stortford. This is winnable, c'mon lads! If we can keep a clean sheet, well do it. #WeAreDorch— @Ian_Evans 11 March 2014
HT - @BSFCatthegame 0-0 Magpies #WeAreDorch— @DorchTownFC 11 March 2014
BISHOP'S STORTFORD 0 MAGPIES 0
Anthony Church's shot brushes the Dorchester crossbar just before half-time but it's all square after 45 minutes.
More goal action at Bishop Sutton v Bridport.
The hosts pulled one back but Ryan Dovell has got his second and the Bees' third on 43 minutes.
Bees lead 3-1.
No goals in the Magpies' match yet but good news for Bridport who are 2-0 up at Bishop Sutton in the Western League Premier.
Jamie Filkins opened the scoring on 14 minutes and Ryan Dovell added a second on 34 minutes.
Bishop's Stortford 0 Magpies 0
Around 15 minutes gone at the ProKit UK Stadium and still 0-0.
Few chances so far. Brian Woodall let fly with a shot from range for Stortford and captain Reece Prestedge blasted over.
Good luck @DorchTownFC tonight at Bishops Stortford! #Magpies— @wessexjames 11 March 2014

BISHOP'S STORTFORD v MAGPIES preview
The Magpies arrive at the ProKit UK Stadium (got to be one of the worst stadium names in the division) in Hertfordshire looking to put right what went wrong on Saturday in their 4-1 defeat to Boreham Wood.
An interesting stat to consider, and one which says a lot about the turnover of players at the club this season, is that 10 of the 16 in the Magpies' squad who were involved when the sides met in September are no longer at the club.
The teams on that day, when Dorchester lost 3-1, were.....
Stortford: Wright, Adams (Baker 74), Herd, Akurang, Francis, McNaughton, Johnson, Symons (Church 83), Vassell (Asante 69), Sykes, Prestedge. Subs not used: Milbourne, Cowler.
Magpies: Sandercombe, Green, Martin, Jermyn, S Walker, Pugh (Beasley 83), Crittenden, Morgan, Watson, Bassele, Bell (Goodship 46). Subs not used: Way, Ramday, Twyford
On that day, Neil Martin scored in the first minute, Matt Johnson levelled, and Nicky Symons made it 2-1.
Lewis Morgan was sent off on the hour and Phil Simkin followed him to the stand. George Sykes made it 3-1.
Stortford are unbeaten in their last three, with two wins followed by a 1-1 draw at Tonbridge last Saturday. They are 10th in the table.
Team news should be here soon....
