BLANDFORD United won’t take Balti Sports for granted, according to Royals boss Josh Feirn.

Feirn’s men have already beaten Balti twice this season, winning 3-2 in the league and 5-3 in a thrilling clash for the Dorset Senior Trophy, both at Weymouth College.

The two teams now know each other, Feirn expects the unexpected tomorrow at Park Road (3pm).

He told Echosport: “It’s not ideal, you would like to face other teams.

“I would like to say that I know how Balti is going to play, but I won’t take that for granted.

“You never know, Balti can come in and change his system, can do things differently.”

Feirn’s counterpart Marco Nott said: “We definitely know a lot about each other and hopefully this will be another thriller.

“Both teams are quite open so it will always be a good game for the neutrals. Hopefully we can learn from our mistakes and cross the line this time.

“They owe us a victory. They got two so they have to at least give us one. Hopefully we can go there and get three points.

“They attract a lot of people, their facilities have improved considerably. I like to go there.

Blandford welcomes Elliot Manson again but loses Jake Ford, Rich Mason and Steve Smith. Mike Johnson (hamstring) is uncertain but Paul Ford returns.

Sean Zima and Liam Taylor return for Balti, but Jack Drummond (broken wrist) remains out despite returning to training.

Blandford is also not expected to appeal a three-point deduction and £ 200 fine for a match cancellation.
