DORCHESTER Town switch focus back to their improving home form when Taunton Town visit the Avenue Stadium tomorrow (3pm).

The Magpies won three home Pitching In Southern League Premier South games in a row prior to Poole marking a blotch on their copybook with a 4-1 win after Christmas.

A further blow for the Magpies came when Yate scored two controversial goals to seal a comeback 2-1 victory on New Year’s Day.

However, Dorchester will search for a fourth win in five matches at the Avenue against an in-form Taunton side who have gone seven games unbeaten.

Assistant boss James Wood told Echosport: “They’re a good side and have been for a number of seasons at this level.

“They’re always competing in the play-off positions. A potent strike force and it’s going to be a test.

“It’s nice to be at home and we’re looking forward to that.

“We’ve had a good training session on Tuesday.

“It will without doubt be a tough test – you don’t get any easy games in this league.

“That remains a real target of ours to make sure we pick points up at home. We’ve had a slight blip with the Poole game.

“We have to bounce back strong and I’m hoping we will.

“We know quite a bit about Taunton. We always do our homework with regards to reports, footage and having them watched.

“We know their strengths. They’re a very powerful side at this level of football.”

Goalkeeper Harry Lee (illness) is expected to miss out. The Magpies have moved to sign Jack Bycroft from Southampton and the Saints’ stopper could make his debut against Taunton.

Dorchester have “a couple of niggles” within their squad but the game comes too soon for striker Kieran Roberts.

Wood said: “There are a couple of niggles which we’ll assess. Alfie (Stanley) will train after his bout of illness which meant he missed the Yate game.

“Alfie’s back in the squad, fit, firing and ready to go. Kieran’s probably a week or two away but everyone else should be fine.”
