TOM Killick labelled Dorchester Town’s phenomenal 2-1 win over Tiverton Town as “one of the best performances” he has been involved in.

Having played 37 minutes with 10 men in the 1-1 draw with Winchester just 48 hours earlier, Dorchester faced a mountain to climb against Tivvy when Jack Dickson saw red on six minutes.

Despite losing the right-back, Dorchester took the lead from the spot courtesy of Olaf Koszela’s emphatic 34th-minute penalty.

The Magpies came under strain late on as Joe Parker equalised with 17 minutes remaining, before Tiverton saw a huge penalty shout turned down.

Dramatically, Dorchester won a second penalty, leading to Josh Jones’ dismissal, and Will Fletcher sent keeper Zak Baker the wrong way to spark bedlam among the majority of the 710-strong crowd.

Speaking to Dorchester’s media team, Killick said: “It was just immense.

“I can honestly say it’s one of the best performances I’ve had the pleasure of being involved in, in terms of the effort that’s been put into the game.

“We’ve been down to 10 men for pretty much all of the game, but it’s on a Bank Holiday after we’ve just played on the Saturday.

“So, to ask the players to play with 10 men for 85 minutes when they’ve just played on a heavy pitch over at Winchester, I just believe it’s real testament to the spirit they’ve got.

“Nothing typifies it more than Corby (Moore) playing. The wound he’s got, you’ve got no right to expect the lad to play but he wants to play.

“It typifies what they are now as a group, in my view. We know, even now, we’ve still got a bit more to do.

“But we’re edging ever closer (to safety) and it’s because of what they are now as a group, what they’re prepared to put into games.

“If we can carry on just producing not the skill, not the ability, if we can harness what we’ve got in terms of the morale and spirit in the group, then I think we’ll be fine.”

Dorchester visit Hayes & Yeading on Saturday (3pm).
