DORCHESTER Sports face a “battle against complacency” when rock-bottom Sturminster Marshall visit the Avenue Stadium tomorrow (2pm).

Marsh have lost all 19 games this season in the Dorset Premier League this season, chalking up a minus 188 goal difference.

They have earned many admirers for ploughing on in adversity, continuing to play and learn when many other sides might have withdrawn from competition.

Sports’ boss Ashley James told Echosport: “Being at home, it’s a no-win situation. If we win, everyone’s going to expect us to. If we don’t, we’re going to be the first team to drop points against them.

“Mentally, it’s a tough one to go into. We’ve got to try and treat it as another game but the lads all know where they are in the league.

“They’ll be hoping to get the win but we’ll only get the win if we play to the best we can.

“If we don’t go into it with the right mentality and if we think it’s just going to be an easy game, then anything can happen.

“We don’t want to be that team to drop points against them. It’s a battle against complacency.”

Ash Smith and Darren Watts are unavailable but Todd Coombs, Josh Pratt and Nick Hutchings return.
