Corfe Mullen 1 Portland United Res 2

Saturday 17th February 2018

Portland United Reserves came away from Corfe Mullen with all 3 points in The Dorset Senior League on Saturday with what manager Justin Faulkner claimed was a `much better performance` than the previous week when they were defeated 2-1 by Witchampton.

The Blues were quickest out of the traps and went ahead when Adam Anstey found Sanchez Baker who made no mistake with the finish when through one on one. Baker then added his second of the game, Jordan Moore teeing him up.

In the second half The Blues continued to create chances but were unable to find the goal that would make the game safe. Leon Attree, Josh Camp and Baker all hitting the home sides crossbar whilst Anstey, Attree, Baker and Che Curran should have done better with headers from deliveries in to the box.

Corfe Mullen did pull one back late on as a low drive in to the box was turned in to his own net by Attree who managed to get to the ball before the Corfe attacker, setting up a tense final 5 minutes.

Looking back at the game Faulkner commented "That was a much better performance today, I asked for a response and we certainly got that, we controlled the game for large periods. If I`m being super critical I would say we should have done better with our chances and put the game to bed earlier. The own goal gave them a bit of momentum and set up a nervy 5 minutes at the end, which we should have avoided, but the lads dug in and we got the vital 3 points."

Faulkner also added "It`s been a stop start season for us, we haven`t completed half of our fixtures yet heading towards the end of February. Hopefully the worst of the weather is behind us and we can get a consistent run of games and a good run of results to boot."
