BLANDFORD United will not take playing Balti Sports for granted, according to Royals’ boss Josh Feirn.

Feirn’s men have already beaten Balti twice this season, winning 3-2 in the league and 5-3 in a pulsating Dorset Senior Trophy clash – both at Weymouth College.

With both teams now familiar with each other, Feirn is expecting the unexpected tomorrow at Park Road (3pm).

He told Echosport: “It’s not ideal, you’d like to face other teams.

“I’d like to say I know how Balti are going to play but I won’t take that for granted.

“You never know, Balti may turn up and change their system, may do things differently.”

Feirn’s counterpart Marco Nott said: “We certainly know a lot about each other and hopefully it will be another thriller.

“Both teams are pretty open so it’s always going to be a good game for the neutral. Hopefully we can learn from our mistakes and get over the line this time.

“They owe us a win. They’ve had two so they’ve got to at least give us one. Hopefully we can go there and get three points.

“They do get quite a few people watching, their facilities have improved drastically. I quite enjoy going down there.”

Blandford welcome back Elliot Manson but lose Jake Ford, Rich Mason and Steve Smith. Mike Johnson (hamstring) is a doubt but Paul Ford returns.

Sean Zima and Liam Taylor return for Balti, but Jack Drummond (broken wrist) remains out despite returning to training.

Blandford are also expected not to appeal against a three-point deduction and a £200 fine for cancelling a fixture.
