BOSS Tom Killick was content with a share of the spoils despite seeing Poole Town pegged back on two separate occasions against Gloucester City.

Dolphins extended to three games their unbeaten run in National South thanks to a strike from Warren Bentley and an own goal from Lewis Hall.

The 2-2 draw saw Poole climb above Chippenham Town, leaving them just a point clear of the bottom three.

Killick told the Daily Echo: “It gave us a bit of momentum. We didn’t play at our best but were relatively pleased.

“It keeps our very small unbeaten run going and that is good from a confidence perspective.

“There was a bit of frustration because we were in front twice but I think it’s a better result for us than them.”

After losing defender Uli Aihevba early through injury, Killick’s men took the lead when Bentley charged down goalkeeper Harry Williams’s clearance and placed the ball into the net.

But four minutes later, the hosts hit back when Chris Knowles headed in from a free-kick on the edge of the area.

Following the break, a pair of own goals from Hall and Poole’s Jordan Williams ensured both teams recorded a point.

“The game was probably within a whisker of being called off,” Killick added.

“There was standing water on the pitch and we have probably had games called off with a pitch in better condition.

“But I am not criticising the referee for playing it because both sides wanted to play – it just made for a difficult game with not a lot of quality.”

Killick also revealed Jack Dickson may be out for two to three weeks with an ankle problem.
