Non-league: Strong minds required to halt Wimborne's woe
Below-par displays saw Magpies concede seven goals at promotion rivals Paulton Rovers last Saturday and succumb to a tame 3-0 derby defeat at Poole in the Dorset Senior Cup on Tuesday.
But Cuss believes his charges can recover from their travel sickness and boost their play-off prospects when they host second-bottom Fleet Town in Southern South & West (3pm).
Cuss told the Daily Echo: “We’ve got to try to be positive. We’re still sixth in the league with half a season to go and we’re trying to push on.
"You have to deal with the highs and lows in football. Take things back a week and we had won six out of eight games and everyone was on a high.
“After two poor performances where we lost convincingly, the players need to be mentally strong and show good character to bounce back and keep us pushing for those play-off positions.”
Cuss reported that Ian Oliver and Paul Roast would return to a largely unchanged squad.
Magpies: (from) Harvell, Arnold, Maybury, Oliver, Costello, Wilson, Middleton, Blake, Webb, Griffin, Sainsbury, Stokoe, Gamble, Kemble, Davidson, Brian, Roast, Ackerman (g/k).
