DORCHESTER Town manager Steve Thompson cut a delighted figure after his side dismissed Farnborough 4-0 in their Evo-Stik Southern Premier Division win at the Avenue Stadium.

Ed Bastick scored a clinical double, while Sam Lanahan and Mo Baghdadi, who notched his fifth goal in two games, also struck.

After a second impressive victory in three days, the Magpies have amassed ten goals and kept two clean sheets after Saturday’s 6-0 win over St Ives.

Thompson is consequently pleased that his charges are beginning to cash in on the volume of chances they have created in recent games.

He told Echosport: “We lacked a final ball in the first half but I felt we were dominating the game. As I’ve said to the players ‘you’ve gone and dominated two games, scored ten goals and none conceded’.

“I said: ‘If we can do well consistently over the last 20 odd games of the season you can move up the table. You’ve shown that you’ve got the potential.’

“Farnborough have won 5-2 and 5-3 in their last two games so we thought they would have an attacking threat and to be fair we nullified that.

“The back four were very solid and we created plenty. Even in the first half we got into great positions without finding the final ball.

“So I’m very pleased with the team over the last three games, even the Stratford defeat. I think we created eight, nine, 10 chances in that game and were undone by two mistakes near the end.”

With Thompson buoyed by all aspects of his side, he was particularly impressed with his side’s recent “consistency”.

He said: “They all played well (against Farnborough) and they all played well on Saturday.

“I’m really pleased with the consistency we’ve found in those two games and we’ve put teams to the sword.

“We’re not going to get carried away because our away record isn’t brilliant and we go away on Saturday.”
