Football: Terras v Magpies live match coverage

Last updated:

    Aidan Williams and Neil Walton are on hand to provide live blog coverage of Weymouth v Dorchester Town at the Bob Lucas Stadium (KO 3pm).
  • Weymouth are looking to do the double on their arch-rivals after double from captain Jake McCarthy, added to a first-half Brandon Goodship goal, handed the Terras a 3-0 win at the Avenue Stadium in August in what proved to be former Magpies' boss Craig Laird's final game in charge.
  • Since new boss Steve Thompson took over, Dorchester have gone on to pick up 23 points in 18 games, scoring 10 goals in their past three matches.
  • But Weymouth are in supreme home form, winning their last five home games and keeping clean sheets in each of them.
  • Weymouth also boast an excellent home record in league derby fixtures between the two old enemies.
  • The Terras have won four of their last five league games against Dorchester at the Bob Lucas Stadium, drawing the other 2-2.
  • Weymouth warmed up for the clash with a 5-0 mauling of Redditch United, with Brandon Goodship scoring his second hat-trick of the season.
  • Dorchester meanwhile, lost 1-0 at Bishop's Stortford having beaten St Ives 6-0 and Farnborough 4-0 in their previous two games.
