BALTI Sports boss Marco Nott has acknowledged Westland Sports’ attributes ahead of their trip to Alvington in the Premier League from Jewson Dorset tomorrow (3pm).
Balti picked up his second win of the season last time around, beating Swanage 3-1 to end a four-game losing streak in five games.
But in defensively strong Westland, which have won all five home games, Balti arguably has his biggest test of the season ahead.
Nott told Echosport: âThey are always very difficult to beat – a very strong team defensively.
âThey have players up front who can hurt you, so they’re still in the top three with Merley and Ham Rec. I really expect a really tough game.
“We actually won there last year in the (DPL Extra Cup), we beat them 3-1, so hopefully we can gain some confidence from that and the fact that we got three points Saturday.

âI hope our mindset will change now and we can try to start and get points on the board.
âBut it’s definitely one of the toughest games you normally face in the league, especially away from home. It’s a tough place to go.
Balti welcomes experienced midfielder Ryan Dovell for broken ribs, but Jamie Rawlings (shoulder) is out.
Stef Stavrianos (knee), Carl McClements (broken toe) and Jack Drummond (broken wrist) remain absent.
