DORCHESTER Town must quickly fix their “losing mentality”, according to boss Leigh Robinson.

Despite being classed as hot favourites for their FA Cup first qualifying round tie at Christchurch, the Magpies shockingly crashed out 2-1 to opponents ranked two divisions lower.

Tom Blair had given Dorchester an eighth-minute lead, only for Christchurch to cause a huge ‘cupset’ courtesy of an own goal and a 90th-minute winner from Harvey Wright.

Speaking to Echosport, Robinson admitted the devastating defeat was a familiar tale after a 3-1 loss to Weston-super-Mare at the weekend.

He said: “We knew it would be a tough game but quite simply it was the same story as Saturday.

“We went 1-0 up, looked OK and in a little bit of control. Then, as soon as we made a mistake and the equaliser came, the team fell apart.

“It was exactly the same as Saturday. It’s a real losing mentality that runs through the club which is something we’ve badly got to fix.

“It’s been going on for quite a long time now, way before I joined.

“That’s cup football, we’ve handed them the initiative back and we weren’t good enough or able to wrestle it back, which is massively disappointing.

“Granted, we had to be a bit more open in the last 10 minutes than perhaps we would normally have been, but no question the best team in the second half won the game.”

Christchurch equalled their best-ever run in the FA Cup and await tomorrow’s draw to discover their second qualifying round opponents.
