DORCHESTER Town’s BetVictor Southern Premier South battle with Metropolitan Police tomorrow (3pm) is a “huge” game for the Magpies, boss Callum Brooks insists.

Dorchester are seeking a first league victory since the 2-0 success over fellow strugglers Yate Town and currently have an unenviable record of one win from 12 league games.

However, Tom Purrington plundered a hat-trick as Dorchester thrashed Hamworthy United 7-0 to make the Dorset Senior Cup semi-finals on Tuesday night.

A welcome return to form for the 21st-placed Magpies has energised Brooks, who promised his side will “give it absolutely everything” against the Blues.

Asked for his thoughts on the contest, he said: “It’s huge – every game’s huge. If you’re mid-table you’re looking to kick on.

“But when you’re down there in the relegation zone you have to approach teams differently.

“The incentive of getting out of the relegation zone is absolutely massive because there would be a different feel around the place.

“It’s a big game and we’ll give it absolutely everything. If the lads have the attitude and hit the kind of levels without the ball that they did (on Tuesday) good things will happen.

“For us it’s just a case of keeping going, it’s been miles too long without winning a game of football. Maybe this game came at a good time for us.”

Winger Tom Blair is a doubt after being carried off against the Hammers, but Dorchester otherwise have no injury concerns.
