PORTLAND United boss Brendon King believes the Blues are owed a win against Lymington Town ahead of their Sydenhams Wessex Premier Division clash at the Weyline Stadium tomorrow (3pm).

King’s men were beaten 2-1 away to the Linnets in late January, teenage strike sensation Bailey Rowe grabbing Portland’s goal in Hampshire.

Portland are seeking to build on the 3-1 win at Amesbury Town last time out, but come up against a Town side marching on their way to fifth place in the standings.

“We owe them one,” King told Echosport. “After going up there we felt a little bit hard done by, but that’s football.

“We’ve just got to take on from last week’s win at Amesbury, take the good things out of that.

“We know going forward Lymington have got some really good players up front, so we need to stop the ball getting up into those areas where they can be dangerous.

“We know ourselves we create chances, so it’s got the hallmarks of being a decent game.”

Portland are without the services of midfield duo Max Buckler and Sean Stewart.

King said: “Max is unavailable and Sean’s still got a bad back, so we’ll just have to wait and see and see what the squad is going to be, but we’ve certainly got more to pick from.”

Portland’s reserves visit Sturminster Newton in Dorset Premier League action tomorrow (2pm).
