TOM Killick hailed in-form Poole Town forward Ollie Dennett as "technically very good" after notching his fifth goal of the season on Monday.

The forward, who arrived on loan from Havant & Waterlooville earlier this month, has made a flying start at Dolphins and is level with Salisbury's Toby Holmes at the top of the Southern League South scoring charts.

Dennett, 20, was released by Eastleigh over the summer having scored once for them in the National League last season. He continued his impressive run in front of goal for Poole by sweeping in late on to seal a 3-1 win over Wimborne Town in the bank holiday sunshine at Black Gold Stadium.

Discussing the impact of his new recruit, Killick told the Daily Echo: "He's just technically very good. He's not the biggest, he looks after the ball well.

"He's playing out wide but he's not an orthodox wide player. He's obviously a striker playing out wide so he wants to get into the box and I think sometimes when you're coming in from wide areas, sometimes it's easier to find a little bit of room.

"When you're playing centrally as a striker you normally find yourself picked up when the ball comes in and around the box but sometimes coming from wide you can just drift in and he does that to very good effect."
