MANAGER Tom Killick has identified striker Jack Mazzone as Met Police’s main threat ahead of Poole Town’s clash with the Surrey-based club in the Southern League Premier South.

Mazzone has netted three goals in three previous appearances against Dolphins, including a controversial winner in the play-off final between the two sides in 2019.

Speaking to the Daily Echo, Killick said: “Met Police have a very powerful centre-forward, Jack Mazzone.

“Everyone knows about him, and everyone respects him.”

The former Woking striker has been Met’s top goal scorer every campaign since joining in 2018, earning a reputation as a threat to Southern League defences.

Met Police come into the game unbeaten and sitting third in the league, with Killick expecting yet another tough trip for his side tomorrow.

“I think everyone respects them as a team,” Killick continued.

“They are one of these sides with limited resources. They just seem to put a very good team together.

“They’ve already had some great results, they went to Taunton and won, beat Lewes in the cup – we’ve never had an easy game against them. I don’t think that will change on Saturday.”

Killick also revealed that Corby Moore was Poole’s only injury doubt ahead of the weekend, with Moore picking up a thigh strain in the win over Swindon Supermarine.

“We’re a bit lucky, as thigh strains normally take a few weeks to come back from – but we took him off early. We’re hopeful that he will be available on Saturday, and if not, he should be available on the Tuesday.”

Jamie Whisken has overcome a groin injury, whilst Josh Carmichael is in line for his first start since the season opener against Gosport.

Former Cherries youngster Carmichael had been lacking match fitness, but is now deemed fit for a return to the starting XI.

Elsewhere in the Southern League Premier South, Wimborne Town entertain Chesham United at New Cuthbury. With only one point separating the two sides near the foot of the table, Magpies will leapfrog their guests with a victory.
