Watson scores his second of the afternoon on 58 minutes, he heads home after some suspect defending from the home side. 

Weymouth have it all to do now.

Neil Slateford picks his spot and strikes the ball into the bottom corner to restore the visitors' advantage on 49 minutes.

50 - Dan Wooden levels for Gosport with a fine left-foot srike from wide on the left edge of the Magpies' area.


Play resumes at the Bob Lucas Stadium 


Second half underway.







Magpies 1 Gosport 0


Terras 2 Truro 2


Terras 2 Truro 2 

Matthews produces a great reaction save to avoid a Michael Walker own-goal, after Dan Green smashed the ball into the area.  



36 - Boro swap Brett Poate, who was at fault for the goal, for Rory Williams.


32 - Alan Walker-Harris is quick off his line to deny Dan Woodward.


29 - Losasso swings a corner into the box and a great header by Nathan Walker rebounds off the Boro crossbar before Smeeton volleys over.


Magpies 1 Gosport 0

27 - Chamberlain given acres of space in behind the Gosport defence and his volley is pushed out for a corner.


Terras 2 Truro 2 

Jake Ash brings down Vassell on the counter-attack and goes into the book.

From the free-kick, the Vassell and Yetton duo strike again and the game is once again all square.  


Terras 1 Truro 2 

It's now three chances and three goals as the visitors take the lead.

Cody Cooke puts Matthews under pressure from the high ball, and the Terras stopper cannot gather, allowing ex-Magpie Ben Watson to nod the ball into an empty net.  



11 - Charlie Losasso hits one from just outside the Borough box with his left foot and Ashmore saves at the second attempt.

Still 1-0 to the Magpies.



Terras 1 Truro 1 

It's all happening here! Truro's Paul Kendall volleys in after six minutes to level things up. Frantic start.



Magpies 1 Gosport 0

5 - What a start for the Magpies!

A relatively innocuous ball into the Gosport box isn't dealt with by Bret Poate and Elliott Chamberlain takes advantage for his first goal for the club.


Terras 1 Truro 0

Stewart Yetton taps the ball home from Vassell's cross to give Weymouth a dream start.


Looks like a 3-5-2 formation for the Magpies today.

It's the Walker brothers and McCarthy across the back, Lanahan and Way out wide and Jermyn, Smeeton and Losasso in midfield.

And it is Chamberlain and Case up front.


We are underway at the Bob Lucas Stadium


Magpies v Gosport has started at the Avenue.



One change to the Magpies' line-up sees Jake Smeeton come in for Jack Twyford, who is among the substitutes.

It's not clear yet what formation Dorchester will be going with - Ryan Case is wearing the number nine shirt.

Sam Smith and Oakley Hanger are also on the bench. Smith made his debut as a late substitute at Whitehawk on Saturday.

Magpies: Walker-Harris, Lanahan, Way, Jermyn (c), N Walker, S Walker, McCarthy, Smeeton, Case, Chamberlain, Losasso.

Subs: Twyford, Munday, Smith, Hanger, Murphy.

One-time Magpies target Tim Sills is on the bench for Gosport.

Gosport: Ashmore, Molyneaux, Poate, Brown (c), Richardson, Pearce, Woodward, Scott, Prior, Bennett, Wooden.

Subs: Kerrigan, Sills, Wilde, Williams, Barfoot.

Ref: Simon Knapp (Bristol)



Terras: Matthews, McConnell, Wells, M Walker, Hutchings, Richards, Green, Colwell, Yetton, Rigg, Vassell.

Subs: Poole, Ford, Zima, Kelly, Jagger-Cane

Truro: Fisher, Parcell, Daw, Kendall, Pugh, White, Green, Ash, Watson, Cooke, Slateford

Subs: Eddy, Afful, Tully, Copp

The Terras are unchanged from the side that defeated Redditch on Saturday.


MAGPIES v GOSPORT match preview

Coincidentally, it was on another bank holiday Monday back in August that these two teams met for the first time this season.

Dorchester battled hard on that occasion to earn a 1-1 draw in Gosport - their first point of the season - but little did they then that the campaign would turn out like it has.

For so long, Gosport were the Magpies' rivals in the battle to stay off the foot of the Skrill South table, but after reaching the FA Trophy final, Borough found their form and secured their safety last week.

They also beat the Magpies 3-0 on their way to Wembley.

Today will be a chance for the Magpies to at least finish their home fixture programme on a high with just Saturday's trip to Ebbsfleet to come.


TERRAS v TRURO match preview

Weymouth go into today’s final home game of the season on a high following their ruthless 4-0 win away at Redditch United on Saturday.

And with some unfinished business to settle against Truro today, it should make for a good encounter.

Less than two weeks ago Jason Matthews’ side lost 2-1 to today’s visitors at Treyew road in a lacklustre performance that the Terras’ boss is keen to put right.

That victory also gave ex-Weymouth defender Steve Tully the green light to take charge of the Tigers for next season.

A place in the league’s top ten is still up for grabs if Weymouth can produce positive results in their last two league games.
