Non-league: Draws will not do for Poole boss Killick

Bournemouth Echo: LEVEL PEGGING: Poole Town manager Tom Killick LEVEL PEGGING: Poole Town manager Tom Killick

RUEFUL boss Tom Killick warned that Poole Town's sharing nature could prove costly in their quest for promotion.

Despite an own goal handing Dolphins an early lead, skipper Dan Cann had to rescue his side with a second-half leveller in a 2-2 draw at Arlesey Town last night.

Poole have shared the spoils in their past three Southern League Premier Division matches with Killick conceding that solitary points would not be sufficient for a sustained title tilt.

The Tatnam manager told the Daily Echo: “We created enough chances to win the game comfortably and the overriding feeling at the end was that we had dropped two points.

“Some might see it as a good point away from home in midweek but we are all too aware that these results can prove very costly in the long run.”

Meanwhile, Killick revealed that striker Richard Gillespie will visit a specialist with a view to having shockwave therapy on his injured heel on Friday.

Dolphins: Buchel, Emmerson, Martin (Charles, 65), Whisken, Pettefer, Chiedozie, Devlin (Elliott, 61), Brooks, Preston, Cann (Spetch, 79). Unused subs: Turner, Hutchings (g/k).

  • Elsewhere, bottom club Bashley suffered a 4-1 defeat at home to play-off seekers Stourbridge. 

Dual-registered front-runner Jack Satterley was not in the squad, instead starting for Blackfield & Langley in their Wessex League draw with Downton. 

Skipper Jack Odam scored from the penalty spot for Bash. 

Bash: George, Blackmore, Flint (Roberts, 59), Strickland, Marden, Morris (Bulpitt, 38), Davis, Soetan, Joyce, Odam, Kenna (Edwards, 71). Unused subs: Brookes, Jones (g/k).

The trend of 1 point returns instead of 3 is more worrying than an out of date picture!
TK will sort it out, but I'd like to see a new arrival with Gillys instincts if he's out until the run in.
