DORCHESTER Town boss Leigh Robinson rued the poor timing of Weston-super-Mare’s second goal as the Magpies were edged out 2-1 in their BetVictor Southern Premier South contest.

Tom Bath had cancelled out Chris Knowles’ opener as the Magpies looked set to achieve a rare feat of going in level at half-time.

However, striker Mike Symons was allowed too much time to turn and score past keeper Shane Murphy to restore the Seagulls’ lead in the 40th minute.

And the goal left Robinson to reflect on what might have been a more positive half-time team talk.

“We were frustrated to come in 2-1 (down) at half-time,” Robinson said.

“We seem to be saying that a lot. It’s the timing of goals that seems to be bad every week.

“At the minute, where we were, even for it to be one-all at half-time the mood would’ve been different than the frustrated vibe we had at half-time.

“I’ve got to be honest, it was a bad, bad goal to give away. Mike Symons is a hell of a strong boy but it wasn’t the cleanest hit in the world and (he had) far too much time in the box, for me.

“It’s a disappointing goal to give away at a disappointing time.”
