POOLE Town round off their first season back in the Southern League Premier Division with the last of five consecutive home matches against Arlesey Town on Saturday (3pm).

Dolphins, who were knocked out of the FA Trophy by the Blues in November, missed out on the play-offs after their rivals all won on Bank Holiday Monday but could still finish sixth in the final standings with victory over their mid-table rivals.

Dan Cann could return having completed his five-match ban.

Dolphins: (from) Hutchings, Clarke, Martin, Dibba, Whisken, Pettefer, Lowes, Burbidge, Devlin, Chiedozie, Davies, Elliott, Brooks, Cann, Charles, Davis, Swindlehurst, Dickson, Thomas (g/k).

  • Wimborne Town might have nothing to play for but Steve Cuss's men could have another say in fight for promotion from Southern South & West.

Having ended Tiverton Town's title interest with a comfortable 2-0 success at Cuthbury on Monday, Magpies travel to sixth-placed Shortwood United (3pm) with the hosts needing a win to gatecrash the top five.

Magpies: (from) Harvell, Arnold, Maybury, Oliver, Brimson, Blake, Griffin, Kemble, Grose, Stokoe, Gamble, Webb, Roast, Donachy, Davidson, Phillipson-Masters.

  • Hamworthy United's hopes of a top-half finish could rest on the result of their final match at home to AFC Portchester in the Wessex League Premier Division.

Elsewhere, Hammers will hope Bournemouth Poppies can do them a favour by beating Whitchurch United at Victoria Park, while Verwood Town entertain backmarkers Romsey Town.

Christchurch play their penultimate match at Newport (IOW) with a rescheduled fixture at title-chasing Sholing to come on Thursday.

In Wessex One, Ringwood travel to title-hopefuls Andover Town (all 3pm).
