DORCHESTER Town boss Steve Thompson will not “get carried away” when the Magpies face Chesham United at the Avenue Stadium in the Evo-Stik Southern League Premier tomorrow (3pm).

The county town side beat Gosport Borough 7-2 on Monday but the Magpies’ manager is mindful of the context of that result, given Boro had picked up just one point all season.

Thompson, who picked up the first home win of his tenure against Gosport, told Echosport: “It’s always lovely to win football matches, that’s what it’s all about.

“We won’t get carried away. We know that we played a team down near the bottom that are struggling.

“But you’ve got to beat them and we did that against Dunstable, and we picked up a point against Farnborough, but we know we’ve got to improve,” he said.

Thompson also revealed he will analyse footage of the game to better understand how the Magpies conceded twice against Boro.

He said: “I will look at the goals. The first I think we lost the ball quite high up but that’s no reason it should end up in the goal 70 yards away."

Thompson now turns his attentions to Chesham, and says he will have had the Generals watched in midweek.

“I’ve got a guy up in London who I trust and I’m hoping he’s going to give me the run down on Chesham.

“Every little one or two per cent helps – where their main dangers are, where they’re strong, where they’re weak.

“So hopefully we can turn in a good performance and more importantly we can get a win,” he said.
