BALTI Sports boss Marco Nott is aiming to bounce back from the disappointment of exiting the Dorset Senior Trophy by beating Merley Cobham Sports in the Dorset Premier League tomorrow (2pm).

Nott’s men host Merley at Weymouth College looking to repeat the success they enjoyed over the same opponents in the League Cup in October, a result that remains their last win.

Speaking to Echosport, Nott said: “It’s disappointing because we really wanted a cup run but we blew it. We’ve got one more game up to Christmas and we’ve got to get a positive result.

“Merley are a good experienced side. We knocked them out of the League Cup and it was a really good game. We’re expecting a difficult game.

“We certainly need to be up for it and much better than we have been. If we lose we start to disconnect ourselves from the top six, so it’s important we win.”

After missing up to 10 players for the 3-1 defeat to Westland Sports Reserves last time out, Nott expects a different scenario against Merley.

He said: “I’m hoping Charlie (Kenderdine) will be back, Ryan Dovell and Ethan Devaney. Ricky Lane is still injured.

“We need to get Danny Andrews scoring again. He’s been working his socks off but we haven’t been giving him the right service.”
