BALTI Sports’ boss Marco Nott recognised the attributes of Westland Sports ahead of their trip to Alvington in the Jewson Dorset Premier League tomorrow (3pm).

Balti earned their second win of the season last time out, beating Swanage 3-1 to halt a run of four losses in five games.

But in the defensively sound Westland, who have won all five home games, Balti have arguably their biggest test of the season coming up.

Nott told Echosport: “They’re always really tough to beat – a very strong side defensively.

“They’ve got players up front that can hurt you so they’re always top three with Merley and Ham Rec. I’m definitely expecting a really tough game.

“We actually won up there last year in the (DPL Supplementary Cup), we beat them 3-1, so hopefully we can gain confidence from that and the fact we got three points on Saturday.

“Hopefully our mindset will change now and we can try and kick on and get some points on the board.

“But it’s definitely one of the toughest games you normally face in the league, especially away from home. It’s a difficult place to go.”

Stef Stavrianos (knee), Carl McClements (broken toe) and Jack Drummond (broken wrist) remain out.
