Non-league: Cuss hopes to banish Wimborne's away day blues
WIMBORNE Town will be seeking their first away win of the season when they visit Taunton Town in Southern League Division South & West tomorrow.
Steve Cuss’s men have endured a mixed start to their promotion quest after claiming eight points from their opening six fixtures, with just one coming from three matches on their travels.
On his team’s patchy form away from Cuthbury, the Magpies boss told the Daily Echo: “It is difficult to put your finger on why we haven’t performed away from home. From our point of view, we just have to try to stay positive and take the game to Taunton.”
Jason Harvell (groin) and Mark Gamble (hamstring) will go through late fitness tests but Cuss is optimistic about Jamie Davidson’s chances of playing, while Matt Kemble looks set to return.
Magpies: (from) Ackerman, Arnold, Wilson, Maybury, Costello, Brian, Blake, Griffin, Hubbard, Stokoe, Kemble, Webb, Whitley, Davidson, Roast, Gamble, Harvell.
The Potters manager remained confident he could find a replacement ahead of tomorrow’s trip to Blackfield & Langley but admitted it had been “a difficult position to fill”.
Should Arnold’s attempts prove fruitless, 40-year-old coach and former Bashley keeper Geoff Sim will stand in. Verwood’s only other absentee will be suspended striker Jack Lovell.
Potters: (from) Sim, Evans, Homer, Oldring, Kelly, Smith, Webb, Hill, Dyer, Gajic, Haskell, Darren Munday, Saxby, Dan Munday, Murray, Elysee.
Injury-plagued Poppies, who confirmed Zouaoui Lammali and Sean Bartlett had left the club this week, travel to fellow strugglers Totton & Eling with both teams seeking for their first points of the season.
Meanwhile, Jordan Cole returns for Christchurch’s trip to Downton (both 3pm).
Poppies: Lillington, Ayrton, Cooper, Austin, Burgis, Turner, Burt, Corby, Lane, Andrews, Robinson, Hales, Saadi.
Priory: Frampton, Doe, Cole, Walker, Legg, Blackburn, Cullen, Smith, Fairbrother, Saul, Purdy, Burden, Foster, Homan, Speers, Bernard, Hoey.
