DORCHESTER Town wing-back Sam Jackson feels securing a second home league victory of the season could cure the Magpies’ hoodoo at the Clayson Stadium.

Jackson, having signed on dual registration from Bashley in November, has yet to taste success in the league at home with the Magpies’ only triumph coming against Hartley Wintney in September.

Jackson expects Dorchester to “kick on” when the county town side finally breaks its long winless run and will be looking to do so when the Magpies host Harrow Borough today (3pm).

He said: “It’s a bit of a weird one, we can’t really work it out ourselves. As soon as we get that second win we’ll just kick on.

“It’s in the back of your mind a little bit. When you do look at the league table you see ‘home form, won one’ all season. We just need to go back to basics and work a bit harder, but it’s not for want of trying.

“If we can get that out of our system it just lifts everyone and the people coming to watch as well.

“Everyone needs to come together a bit more. We’re not going to stop working together and we have conversations about it.”

For the remainder of the season, Jackson is aiming to capitalise on the foundations he has built during his stint at the Magpies.

He said: “Rest of the season, just keep building on my performances. I’m improving as I’m going, which is always good and I can contribute to how the team’s playing.”

“I still need a goal as well! But obviously the result will always come first and I can chip in here and there with the odd assist and defensively on corners,” he said.
