DORCHESTER Town manager Callum Brooks admits the Magpies’ BetVictor Southern Premier South clash with Walton Casuals tomorrow (3pm) is “a must-win game”.

Dorchester welcome Casuals to the Clayson Stadium in need of a victory as the county town side sit 21st of 22 teams, four points and four places adrift of their Surrey-based opposition.

Brooks’ men have claimed just three league wins this season and the Magpies’ boss insists the fixture is not only important due to points on offer, but also for future direction.

When asked if the match was a must-win, Brooks told Echosport: “We often hear the word must-win banded around and there’s certain games that fall into that category. This is one of those games.

“Not just because of the league position and the fact that they’re a little bit ahead of us, but because of where we want to be as a football club.

“We want to be competitive in every game and be making our own patch a fortress. There’s a process we’re going through in order to achieve that, but it’s dependent on picking up results in certain games.

“Without a doubt, taking into account the situation we’re in now, it’s a must-win game.”

Tom Blair begins the first of a two-game ban, while Kyle Egan (knee) is nearing a return. Charlie Davis, Luke Winsper and Callum Rose will be available.

Dorchester could also name new signings Connal Morrison, a left-back, and forward Devon Arnold, on a youth loan, in their matchday squad.
