BALTI Sports’ manager Marco Nott joked his side are on their “Z game” ahead of a home clash with Hamworthy United Reserves today (3pm).

Nott’s men have been knocked out of both cup competitions and currently sit 12th of the 18 Jewson Dorset Premier League sides.

Close behind are a young Hammers side who occupy 16th following their promotion to Dorset’s highest tier this season.

Nott told Echosport: “They’re a very young side and their first team are unbelievable. They’ve got a seriously good squad.

“You never know what could happen, they could filter some players down.

“They’ve started a little bit slowly but they’ll have their tails up after their first win. They probably fancy it because we’re not in the best of form.
