Killick takes Dolphins on revenge mission
TOM Killick admits his wounded Poole Town troops face a major task in their bid to gain revenge on FA Cup tormentors Yate Town.
Dolphins will tomorrow make the trip to Bristol with their painful 5-0 thumping at the same venue last weekend still fresh in the memory.
Boss Killick is hoping for a rapid change of fortunes when the two clubs renew rivalries in Southern League Division One South & West (3pm).
Killick told the Daily Echo: “They beat us comprehensively and it wasn’t a game where someone was sent off or where there was some sort of problem.
“We were poor and they played really well.
“It was one of those bad days and I am just hoping we can change things round and do better, but it is going to be difficult.
“It was one of the heaviest defeats we have had in a while.
“I have been reasonably pleased with our start to the season but it was so upsetting to go out of the FA Cup.
“It was bitterly disappointing to exit that competition at the first hurdle but, in the league, we are in a relatively strong position,” added Killick.
Striker Steve Brown is again set to feature for Poole after his recent signing from Wessex Premier outfit Alton.
Killick, who is also looking at the possibility of drafting in a loan recruit, could have central midfielder Steve Devlin and former ex-Cherries trainee Luke Burbidge available.
But Dolphins still have doubts over Glenn Howes (Achilles), Sam Clarke (groin) and Lamin Dibba (knee).
Dolphins: (from) Hutchings, Baines, O’Donnell, Spetch, Emmerson, Walker, Richardson, Benssaouda, Price, Sturgess, Kay, Preston, Brown, Brooks, Beasley, Chudy, Devlin, Burbidge.
- Wimborne Town manager Steve Cuss is carefully considering his team selection for Magpies’ home clash with Swindon Supermarine at Cuthbury .
Cuss’s men have made a promising opening to their league campaign with four points from three matches.
The Magpies boss told his club’s website: “Swindon have made a good start to the season. But we are back on home soil and I will be looking for a good result.
“It is very important we return to winning ways, so I’m going to be thinking hard about the team. There are a lot of options and, whichever one I take, I have confidence in the players.”
Defender Shaun Brian is doubtful and goalkeeper Jason Harvell remains on the sidelines.
Magpies: (from) Ackerman, Arnold, Cole, Jeffes, Costello, Peprah-Annan, Blake, Gill, Hubbard, Smith, Davidson, Webb, Kemble, Sainsbury, Roast, Maybury, Brian.
