HOLT UTD 2 PORTLAND UTD RES 1

Friday 30th November 2018

Portland United Reserves tasted defeat for the 1st time in 8 games at the hands of Holt United in The Dorset Premier League on Saturday.

The Blues had won each of their last 7 DPL games, Portland United Reserves Manager Justin Faulkner said his squad are still positive after the defeat in what they are achieving this season.

Holt went ahead when a side sided pull back was converted before Holt doubled their lead when a ball in behind the Portland rear guard was converted.

Portland resuced the arrears in the last 10 minutes when Aaron Ryan slotted home when put through by Sean Zima but were unable to take anything from the game for their efforts.

Captain Adam Anstey took charge of the game in Faulkner`s absence, he commented "The performance wasn` that bad and the pitch has held up better than we expected. As a team on the whole I felt we were comfortable, we kept the ball well and certainly had more of the ball. Things just didn`t happen for us today."

Faulkner commented "Unfortunately I wasn`t able to be at the game for family reasons but the reports I`m getting is very encouraging, you get them days when anything you try doesn`t come off for you, we haven`t had many this season so perhaps we were due one. But we will move on to the next game and try to put this result right. I really can`t complain how this season is going and everyone is still positive, we knew this would be a tough against Holt who are a proven DPL side with bags of experience and I`m sure they wanted a bit of revenge for the 4-1 defeat they took at our place."
