POOLE Town will be hoping home is where the heart is as they finish their bid for the play-offs with five games at Tatnam.

Dolphins begin against mid-table Hitchin Town tomorrow (7.45pm) after hauling themselves back into contention for the top five with a win in their final away game on Saturday, a 1-0 success at fellow contenders St Albans City.

The clash, coupled with Thursday’s match against title-contenders Chesham United, hands Tom Killick’s men, currently seventh, the opportunity to move within touching distance of fifth-placed Cambridge City, who Poole host on Saturday.

Dan Cann serves the second of a five-match ban against the Canaries who have won just one of their past seven league matches.

Dolphins: (from) Hutchings, Clarke, Martin, Wannell, Dibba, Whisken, Pettefer, Brooks, Devlin, Davis, Burbidge, Davies, Preston, Elliott, Chiedozie, Gillespie, Thomas.

  • Elsewhere, Bashley travel to Hungerford (7.45pm) who hold a four-point advantage over Poole.

In the Wessex League Premier Division, in-form Hamworthy United, who have suffered just one defeat in their past seven league matches, could climb into the top half with victory at Horndean (7.45pm).
