DORCHESTER Town boss Callum Brooks has described the Magpies’ pre-season friendly with Yeovil Town at the Clayson Stadium tomorrow (3pm) as their most “prestigious” of the summer.

Brooks’ men tackle the Glovers, who were last season relegated from Sky Bet League Two to the National League, in their third friendly ahead of the new BetVictor Southern Premier South campaign.

Dorchester have so far beaten Bridgwater Town 5-0 and lost to Horndean 1-0 and Brooks will be closely monitoring his side’s “defensive discipline” during the Yeovil contest.

He told Echosport: “I think it is the most prestigious (friendly). They’ve just dropped out of the Football League and we’re looking forward to testing ourselves against them.

“With regards to what we’re looking to see from our group, each pre-season game we choose specifically to offer us a different test.

“We’ll be looking at different things from the first two pre-season games where we’ve been very much about pressing and trying to regain the ball back quickly to get the fitness into the legs.

“We’ll be looking more closely at our shape and defensive discipline without the ball and our ability to be compact and deny Yeovil the space to play the football that I’m sure they’re capable of.

“Obviously when we’ve got the ball we still need to be able to pose them a threat, so I think it’ll be a really, really good fixture.

“It’s one that I’m certainly looking forward to, the coaching staff and the players so hopefully the supporters are as well.”

Dorchester centre-back Dan Strugnell is rated as 50/50 for the fixture after a minor jarring of his knee against Bridgwater. The Magpies otherwise have no injury concerns.
