Dorchester Town Preview

Dorchester Town v Woking
3pm on Saturday 27th February 2010

The Cards face a tough trip to Dorchester on Saturday, a side who haven't lost at home in the league since the beginning of November.


Woking will be without Harry Arter, who will be serving the last of his 2 match suspension for picking up 10 yellow cards. Influential midfielder Mark Ricketts is described as being 50-50 after he pulled up injured against Welling last Saturday.


Dorchester are in good form at home, going unbeaten for 8 games in the league.

Their recent results have been:
BSS 2nd Feb Dorchester 1 - 0 Thurrock
BSS 6th Feb Dorchester 0 - 0 Bromley
BSS 8th Feb Chelmsford City 1 - 0 Dorchester
BSS 13th Feb Welling United 1 - 1 Dorchester
BSS 20th Feb Dorchester 2 - 0 Bishop's Stortford

In the reverse fixture back in late November, the Cards came from behind to win 3-1, with goals from Moses Ademola, Harry Arter and Nathaniel Pinney. Pinney was impressive on his debut having come off the bench and Mark Ricketts performed admirably on the day in his defensive midfield role.

Ex Card, Ian Selley featured for Dorchester and despite the defeat he saw promising signs for the future from his team mates and felt the Cards superior fitness was the difference.
