DORCHESTER Town host Hendon on Saturday (3pm) but manager Leigh Robinson has revealed he will not be there.

Robinson already had plans this weekend to celebrate his birthday with a trip to Italy and the club was aware of this when he took over.

First team coach Robbie Herrera will instead take the helm for this one game and Robinson said that although he can “appreciate it does not look great,” the Magpies are in good hands with Herrera.

“Everyone trained last night,”said Robinson. “I’m sure on Saturday we will be more than prepared.”

Dorchester go into this game having not won a league game since October but Robinson feels better results are near: “I think it’s just confidence at the minute. We just need a little bit of luck or a goal just to give us a spark and a bit of life.

“It’s hard because when you haven’t won in so long you go out onto the pitch and you can’t imagine anything apart from losing again.

“Last Saturday was a great example, we were in the game but we weren’t grasping the initiative. When we go behind in games we struggle mentally to recover from that because of how many points we have on the board.

“It’s going to be a tough game, they are on a good run. There’s no home advantage for us really because they play on a 3G pitch as well.

“We have been quite unlucky recently, we lost narrowly against Swindon and we lost Saturday when we had chances like the penalty miss.

“The spirit in the camp is still good so I just feel like a result is coming.”
