TOM Killick claimed Poole Town had delivered another good performance despite their 1-0 defeat to Southern League South rivals Dorchester.

Ben Seymour's first-half effort at Black Gold Stadium on Tuesday extended to six games Dolphins' winless run.

Killick watched his side miss a handful of opportunities to score in the Dorset derby but admitted he could take positives from the loss.

The Dolphins boss told the Daily Echo: "It was not completely dissimilar to the Gosport game on Saturday, in terms of our performance.

"I thought it was a good performance and there was probably a slight improvement because we dominated possession and created chances.

"We just could not take one. Again, it was a soft goal. We just gave the opposition something to cling on to and they defended well."

Defeat left Dolphins 13th in the table and four points above the drop zone.

"There are positives with how we are playing and dominating games, we just need to turn those performances into good results," said Killick.

"We are not getting any soft goals from teams and we are giving the opposition goals which are avoidable. It is a question of being a little bit sharper in converting our chances and more vigilant in our defending."
