TOM Killick credited Dorchester Town’s supporters for helping the Magpies on their way to a 2-1 victory over Beaconsfield Town at the Avenue Stadium.

Some 587 fans attended the rescheduled match on a pay-what-you-want basis after the original fixture was abandoned at 1-1 midway through the second half due to freezing fog.

And Dorchester repaid the faith shown in them by the home fans when Shaq Gwengwe netted in the 24th minute with a first-time effort from 18 yards.

Dorchester squandered chances for 2-0 before Will Fletcher’s unfortunate own goal with 18 minutes to go put the Rams back on level terms.

That was until the game’s star performer Will Spetch nodded the Magpies back in front for a winning position they would not relinquish.

After the Magpies moved up to 15th, Killick told Echosport: “It’s going to be from now until the end of the season, every game’s going to have a huge emphasis on it.

“For a change, results around us went our way. It just gives everyone a real boost.

“I should probably have mentioned it before now, but the supporters have been really good home and away.

“Clearly, there’s a bit of despondency around the place when they’ve equalised but I think it was almost the supporters who rallied first and then the players responded to that.

“I think it was crucial in terms of how we managed to get ourselves back in front. I feel we deserved that with what we put into the Totton game.

“A draw was an unbelievable effort at Totton and an unbelievable achievement to get back from being dead and buried, but it was just one point so not a huge, tangible reward for it.

“So, to back it up with three points was just so vital and there were so many good performances out there.

“I thought first half we were really bright. My only negative was I felt we could’ve had a bit more devil in the last third.

“Because of the even nature a lot of the time of the teams you’re playing, they’re always going to bounce back. When you have those periods of ascendancy you have to try and make the most of it.

“I felt we were a little bit: ‘Oh, the next one will go in’ and it looks like it’s come back to bite you when they equalise.

“But, with the help of the supporters, the players then rallied and Will Spetch has just been inspirational in terms of his performances and his goals this year and he’s got another vital one.”

Killick’s men now face a trip to relegation rivals Tiverton Town tomorrow (7.45pm).
