DORCHESTER Sports are confident they will maintain good form ahead of a trip to Shaftesbury Town Reserves tomorrow (3pm).
Ashley James’ men have won nine of 13 games in all competitions this season and currently sit fifth in the Jewishon Dorset Premier League.
They travel to a Rockies team that has also had a strong record this season, winning four of their nine league games to sit in seventh place.
However, after a 7-0 win over Poole Borough last weekend, sports are on top.
James told Echosport: “From all the guys it was a very positive performance and we are looking for more (tomorrow).
“We’ve been in good shape in great numbers this season. That’s nine wins in 13.

“The four games we didn’t win were tough away games. I’m not sure people will get much at Westland, Stur Newton, and Ham Rec this year anyway.
“We were disappointed that we didn’t, but the games we thought we should have won we actually have. It’s a huge bonus because last year we didn’t win these games.
“We struggled against some of the teams in the lower half. ”
Sports could debut left-back Liam O’Shaughnessy, who has left rivals Balti Sports.
James said: “It wasn’t easy, but it’s a player decision. Unfortunately, we lost Jamie (Rawlings) to them this summer – it was a player decision.
“It hasn’t been fun doing it but if he wants to join us, we can’t really say no for a player of his ability.
“He’s young, eager to do well, in good shape and a good left foot. You don’t see much of it anymore.
“When the opportunity arose, we couldn’t say no. I’m sure another team would have said yes if they had wanted to join them.
Jamie Symes and Sam Buckler (both groin), as well as Ash Smith (hamstrings) are missing.
