Portland United Res 1 Poole Borough 1

Saturday 28th April 2018

Portland United Reserves shared the points with Poole Borough on Saturday as they drew 1-1 at The Weyine Stadium in The Dorset Senior League.

The result ends Portlands winning run of 7 games in an uninspiring game where chances were at a premium.

In the opening exchanges Portland were rampant and had three good chances to open the scoring but failed to capatilise. They did find the breakthrough however when Josh Camps cross was converted by Rory Zima. A lead they would take in to the break.
In the second half Poole found an equaliser to give Poole a share of the spoils.

Looking back at the game Portland United Reserves Manager Justin Faulkner commented "It was a disappointing result, mainly because of the run we`ve been on lately but I don`t think that on the day we were good enough to win it or deserved to have won it. We are carrying a couple of knocks from Tuesday night, perhaps that had something to do with it but the 1st 15 minutes they couldn`t live with us. We got the goal then seemed to go in to our shell, the players know we need to be better than that."

Faulkner also added "In terms of the season it doesn`t affect anything too much, our aim before the start of the season was the top 4, that is still very much attainable. If we can replicate our recent run it could be an exciting end to the season with 6 games in the next 4 weeks but we know we still have some very tough games to come.
