Wimborne's winless away run continues with blank at Taunton
WIMBORNE Town’s search for their first away win of the campaign continued after a 0-0 draw at Taunton which saw both sides spurn presentable openings.
Magpies keeper Jason Harvell produced a man-of-the-match display by keeping the Peacocks at bay during a torrid first half for the visitors.
But Steve Cuss’s charges rallied after the interval with Billy Maybury striking the crossbar, while Mark Gamble saw an effort cleared off the line.
Boss Cuss said: “In the first half, Jason Harvell kept us in the game with some great saves.
“As far as our second-half performance was concerned, if there was to have been a winner it would have been us. But Taunton had their chances, hit the woodwork and also had goal-line chances cleared.”
The point left Wimborne in eighth place in Southern League Division One South & West, three points behind the current top five.
Magpies: Harvell, Arnold, Maybury, Costello, Brian, Blake, Griffin, Hubbard, Stokoe (Davidson, 65), Gamble (Kemble, 70), Webb. Unused subs: Wilson, Roast, Ackerman (g/k).
Pointless Poppies remained rooted to the bottom of the Wessex Premier after a 2-0 defeat to rivals Totton & Eling, who secured their first points.
Injury-plagued Poppies, who exited all four cup competitions in the space of 11 days, have lost their first seven league matches.
Elsewhere, striker Sam Purdy had a mixed afternoon in Christchurch's 2-1 win at Downton.
The young striker handed Priory the lead but was dismissed for a second bookable offence early in the second half.
However, despite the absence of experienced defender David Legg, the visitors secured all three points thanks to Dan Saul's strike.
Meanwhile, Dan Munday scored in Verwood Town’s 2-1 defeat at Blackfield & Langley.
Poppies: Lillington, Ayrton (Cooper, 80), Martinez, Crow, Burgis, Pearce, Burt, Ward, Lane, Robinson (Hales, 69), Rowley. Unused subs: Saadi, Turner, Vaughan (g/k).
Priory: Frampton, Doe (Walker, 80), Bernard, Baker, Blackburn, Cullen, Smith, Fairbrother (Cole, 70), Saul, Purdy, Burden. Unused subs: Foster, Speers, Homan.
Potters: Sim, Evans, Homer, Murray (Darren Munday, 71), Oldring, Kelly, Dyer, Gajic (Kimber, 85), Webb, Saxby, Dan Munday. Unused sub: Arnold.
