WEYMOUTH and Wimborne Town will attempt to complete their Dorset Senior Cup first round tie at the fifth time of asking tonight (7.30pm).

Wimborne were set to hold the match on their New Cuthbury pitch but yesterday announced the decision to stage it on their neighbouring 3G.

With another poor forecast looming, the Magpies, Terras and the Dorset FA have all agreed to shift the fixture from grass to the artificial surface.

Wimborne over the weekend delayed the pre-sale of tickets for the fixture and will now admit fans on a pay-as-you-see-fit basis, given there is standing room only on one touchline.

Prior to the decision to move the game, Weymouth boss Bobby Wilkinson told Echosport: “I’ll be brutally honest, I can’t wait to get rid of it. It’s just a burden now.

“Until they sit down with the clubs and come up with a better structure, it just gets in the way.

“We’ve had it called off four times. We’re going to be playing on their (3G) if the grass doesn’t make it, so at least the game’s going to be played. What will be, will be, after that.

“That’s what I’ve been told. That (3G) doesn’t even have dugouts, that’s how bizarre it is now.

“We just want the game over and done with. As a first-team game we’re not even looking at it.”

Weymouth Under-23s manager Craig Adams and assistant Andy Yates will oversee the match, with Wilkinson in support from the stands.

Teddy Howe is the only senior player set to be involved as he builds up match fitness following a two-game suspension.

Winners of the tie visit Poole Town in the quarter-finals on Tuesday, March 12 (7.45pm).
