BOSS Tom Killick can “strongly guarantee” Poole Town will show “desire and commitment” as they bid to return to winning ways against Met Police.

Tepid displays against Hayes & Yeading and most recently Hartley Wintney saw Dolphins slump out of the FA Cup and FA Trophy within a week.

But Killick is urging his side to show fight and heart as they resume their Southern League South promotion push at Black Gold Stadium on Saturday (3pm).

Killick told the Daily Echo: “I just feel the belief seemed to drain out of us against Hartley Wintney. We looked uncertain, didn’t look positive or didn’t play with any conviction.

“It was just almost like we were waiting for something to happen rather than make it happen. We were reactive, passive and insipid really.

“I think the main thing is to go out and attack the game, be aggressive, show desire and commitment.

“Then, if you’re still not having a great day, you still have a chance to win the game.

“If you’re not having a good game and you down tools, there’s only ever going to be one outcome.”

He added: “On Saturday, I can’t guarantee we’ll play well, but what I would strongly guarantee is that we’re going to have more about us in terms of how we approach the game.”

Met Police, the side who knocked Dolphins out of the division’s play-offs last season, currently sit 11th in the table.

Poole, with as many as four games in hand on the majority of those above them, occupy sixth.
