DORCHESTER Town have a monkey off their back after recording consecutive wins, first-team coach Brian Churchill admitted.

Victory reinforced Saturday's 2-0 triumph over Kings Langley and ended a near four-year wait for back-to-back home league wins when the Magpies defeated Farnborough and Staines 4-0 and 6-0 respectively.

Dorchester last recorded two league wins in a row in March 2019 with respective 3-2 and 4-1 wins at Walton Casuals and Basingstoke.

Glenn Howes' men dominated Wimborne from start to finish and were only denied a goal in the opening half thanks to away keeper Ryan Hall's immaculate display between the posts.

Hall made numerous saves, including getting fingertips to Sam Bayston's 18th-minute strike which hit the base of the far post.

He then pulled off a candidate for save of the season when reacting acrobatically to Tom Soares' close-range strike in the 42nd minute.

Dorchester finally got the goal they deserved early in the second half when Tom Purrington swept home Oakley Hanger's low cross.

Hanger then netted himself, finishing well from a ball over the top before Alfie Stanley struck his sixth goal of the season in stoppage-time.

Having his say on the two straight wins, Churchill said: "Absolutely delighted, the fans have waited a long time for that to happen.

"The players were aware of that before they went out there. It's good to get that monkey off the back and we're delighted because that stat is not one you want to carry on.

"It's a hard ask. We're asking players to run the hard miles, Saturday-Tuesday, all of them have got a job, responsibilities outside of football.

"It has been the squad that's done that. It's not just the 11 that start, we've got players on the bench that can come and help us through games and influence the latter stages."

On the win over Wimborne, Churchill added: "As a team we were a little disappointed at half-time to go in 0-0.

"We hadn't taken six or seven chances in that first half. Sometimes that comes back to bite you later in games. 

"All we talked about at half-time was keep doing the things you're doing, don't change anything. To be fair, we've gone out and scored in the first five minutes.

"Superb, great start to the second half and a great finish to cap off a really good night."

Consecutive clean sheets were also praised by Churchill. "Concentration levels have got to be high, starting positions great. The back four have earned that," he said.

"The whole team's earned that. As a unit, they've kept that clean sheet. That's two on the bounce.

"Callum Buckley was outstanding. Sam Davidson's come in. He's had a game for the 23s and stepped in Saturday, stepped in again and performed really well.

"You think their striker (Lewis Beale) is one of the top strikers in the league. Has he had a shot? Has he got in at all? Nothing. Fair play to them."

Dorchester face a tougher proposition away to Met Police on Saturday (3pm), the Blues having lost just once in 13 games, conceding only seven goals.
