DORCHESTER Town boss Callum Brooks revealed he has “good memories” of Farnborough as the Magpies return to the scene of his first game in charge tomorrow (3pm).

Brooks picked up a 2-2 draw in March at Boro, who held on for 33 minutes with 10 men to prevent the former Hamworthy manager from collecting a debut victory.

Dorchester had been 2-1 up in the contest thanks to Ben Seymour and Tom Blair goals, but Perry Coles’ brace cancelled out the duo’s strikes.

And Brooks will point his current squad, who have won just once in 11 league games, in the direction of that match as proof of their ability to get a result under pressure.

He told Echosport: “I’ve got good memories of the first game at Farnborough, the performance the boys put on that day and the way they followed the gameplan and came back with a hugely valuable point.

“That’s something – especially the ones who were on board that day – that we can refer to as a point to assure us we can do it again.

“The best-case scenario is that we go and have another good afternoon at Farnborough.

“It’s a good place to go and play, it’s a big ground. It’s an old-fashioned ground and can make you realise you’re playing at a really good level of non-League football.

“It should be an enjoyable ground to play in. There’s nothing for us other than to stick together, embrace the challenge, the pressure.

“If the players, the management, everyone does their job well I’ve no doubt we can go and get the result we need to lift things a little bit before we go into two home games.”

Magpies’ captain Dan Strugnell is suspended after picking up a fifth caution of the season at Chesham.

However, Dorchester will receive a significant boost as right-back Kyle Egan is in contention for his first game since Taunton in mid-September after overcoming a knee injury.
