Portland United face an away trip to Fareham Town on Saturday looking to snap out of their recent drawing habit in the Sydenhams Wessex Premier Division.

The Blues are on a run of form that has seen them draw against Amesbury Town, Team Solent and Hamble club in the league but they have progressed to the semi finals of the Dorset Senior Cup.

The manager is looking for a win as opposed to continuing the run of draws, as Portland United manager Simon Browne said: “We’ll go again and see if we can get another win on the road rather than another draw. “

Browne is looking forward to welcoming back Ross Doidge, who missed the match against Amesbury due to suspension, but laments that it will be their third consecutive away match in the league.

Browne said: “It’s yet another away game, three on the bounce but Ross Doidge will be back from suspension and hopefully a couple more of the people who were injured and those that were

unavailable will be around.”

Portland are currently 10th in the table, six places and five points ahead of their opponents on Saturday Fareham Town.

Despite the draws Browne can look at the positives of their recent run, as he said: “We can look at it as we’re unbeaten in three games so it’s not doom and gloom, but those three points that we got in the last league game could have been nine and I’m sure our league position would look a lot healthier.”
