PORTLAND UTD RES 1 BRIDPORT RES 0

Wednesday 15th August 2018

Portland United Reserves have got their season `up and running` according to manager Justin Faulkner after their narrow win against Bridport at The Weyline Stadium.

The only goal of the game came on 37 minutes as Ross Boatswain controlled shot found the back of the net beyond Bridport keeper Billy Fleet.

Looking back at the game manager Justin Faulkner commented "Before the game we talked in the changing room about being strong at The Weyline, our home form will be very important being a new team in this league. I asked the players to forget Saturday and start our season tonight, and they responded. We seen some glimpses of the type of football we want to play but they were too few and far between for my liking. But we defended superbly, we looked like we really wanted it and dug in, we had something to hold on to!"

Faulkner also added "The most important thing was to get some points on the board, the longer it goes you tend to question certain things but we`ve got that monkey off our back. We know we let ourselves down against Westlands and we wanted a response which we got, the table looks alot healthier now."
