DORCHESTER Town boss Leigh Robinson has called on the Magpies to show a positive response to the 5-0 drubbing at Hayes ahead of tonight’s clash at Swindon Supermarine (7.45pm).

Robinson’s charges have won just once in 14 BetVictor Southern Premier South games and are winless in 13 – form that has seen the Magpies sink to the bottom of the league.

Robinson hinted at switching players due to injuries for Luke Winsper and Sean Wright as he looks to earn his first league points as manager.

Speaking to Echosport, he said: “Football does test you like this but I’m sure the players are hurting after (Hayes).

“Quite often after a bad defeat you get a bit of a reaction so we’re going to have to make some changes, no doubt.

“We were carrying perhaps two injuries at the end so there will have to be a change in personnel.

“Perhaps we can come out a bit fresher, try and nick something and get a reaction from what was a terrible day.

“We can’t even think about avoiding relegation because that’s all in the future. We’ve got to try and win one game – the confidence comes flooding back.

“We just need one day where it all comes together defensively and offensively. Forget the survival talk, it’s just a case of trying to see if we can win one game and change it around from there.”

On facing Supermarine, Robinson said: “It’s always been a tough place to go. When I was at Taunton we had some good-old ding-dongs against them.

“It won’t be easy, you’ve got to respect them, the position they’re in and the improvements they’ve made.

“Sometimes in football, against all the odds, you come out with a result. We’ll be hoping it’s one of those days.”

Tom Purrington, whose loan from Plymouth Argyle has been extended by a month, misses out having been selected for the Devon side’s academy squad.

Tom Blair is banned for four more games for picking up three red and 12 yellow cards this season. Callum Rose is unavailable but could not have played due to his ongoing recovery from two ankle strains.
