Basingstoke Town manager Jason Bristow's weekly column
6:00am Saturday 26th October 2013 in Sport
LAST Saturday we recorded a much needed victory over Boreham Wood.
It was a performance that was all about three points and that was what we got. The team put in a workmanlike shift and got the victory that they deserved.
We have certainly performed better in games but gone on to lose this season. Therefore, in a way, it was nice to get maximum points despite not playing our best football.
This Saturday we travel to Dorchester for another tough game. They have won two of their last three and are fighting for every point.
It will be another game where we will have to compete for every ball to get the right result. The players know the minimum requirement in every game is a high work-rate and that will have to continue.
It was great to see Simon Dunn return to action on Saturday and play with great energy. He is a player we have missed because when he is on top of his game, there are few players better than him at what he does. However, Robbie Rice remains a doubt with a calf problem and Jordace Holder-Spooner is still recovering from his shoulder injury.
This weekend is not only a big weekend for us but also Hartley Wintney as they try to reach the first round of the FA cup. I would like to wish Ben Dillon and his team all the very best and hope they get the right result.
We found out who we will face in the next round of the Hampshire Senior Cup on Tuesday. An away tie at Wessex League side Bournemouth Poppies awaits us in December. The Hampshire Cup is a competition we are taking very seriously this season and we will be looking to progress to the next round when we make the trip down to Bournemouth.
