DORCHESTER captain James Dunham has challenged his top order to pile on the runs in their Dorset Funeral Plan Premier League clash with Broadstone at Delph Woods tomorrow (1pm).

In the impressive 13-run victory over champions Wimborne and Colehill last time out, Dorchester’s top four batsmen accumulated just 49 runs before excellent contributions from Mike Peak (50) and Josh Richardson (45).

With Delph Woods’ short boundaries often providing big scores, Dunham is hopeful of a slight improvement from his star batsmen.

He told Echosport: “It’s nothing major, maybe a few more runs at the top of the innings.

“With our depth in the batting line-up, Saturday showed that it’s not all about the top four, five batsmen.

“Six, seven and eight contributed plenty of those runs. It’s not a worry of mine.

“It’s another tricky fixture, not just because it’s at the Delph but Broadstone are a good side. They won the league a couple of years ago and they’ve got some very good players.

“We won’t take anything for granted. We’ve played there for a few years and we know what kind of ground it is.

“It’s the same for both sides, we’ll just have to take it how it is (tomorrow) with the weather and the conditions.”

Dorchester have the luxury of naming an unchanged side for the encounter, while last season’s league-high runscorer Luke Carter is expected to line up for the hosts.

Dorchester: Ryall, Mitchem, Anderson, Belt, Peak, Barrett, Owens, Richardson, Roe, Dunham, Walklett
