BALTI Sports’ boss Marco Nott admits he is “desperate” for a win at Shaftesbury Town Reserves in the Dorset Premier League tomorrow (2pm).

Sports have not secured a league win since late September, when they beat Sturminster Newton 5-0 at Weymouth College.

But they face a Rockies side that beat Nott’s men 5-0 in early November, with the Balti boss wary of Cockrams being a bogey ground.

He told Echosport: “They beat us 5-0 at home and that started our rot. We were very poor that day but we’re certainly hoping to turn things around, we’re desperate for this win.

“I don’t think we’ve ever won there, so we’re not exactly going in with good omens. But we’ll take any win whether it’s top or bottom of the league.

“We need the confidence going into the cup semi-final in a couple of weeks.”

Having won just three of 10 away league games this season, Nott is seeking to improve Balti’s form on the road.

He said: “It’s concerning that we’ve got poor form away. It’s not acceptable from what our targets were at the start of the season. We just need to put some points on the board.”

Sammy Nichols and Carl McClements are unavailable, Phil Anderson and Josh Houghton return and Ricky Lane (work commitments) may play.
