Poole Town suffered a surprising defeat last weekend, against a ten- man Redditch United at Tatnam.
Tommy Killick’s side missed the opportunity to jump straight back to the top of the table after their loss, as top of the league Weymouth suffered their second defeat in a row away to Slough Town.
Poole’s unbeaten home record came ended last Saturday as Zac Sirrell scored a well taken goal during his first start for Redditch after joining from Westfields recently.
The home side weren’t at the top of their game, as they gifted the ball to Redditch too often, and weren’t able to control the game for any extended period.
Redditch almost doubled their lead after an unfortunate slip from Michael Walker released Liam Shearer who overran the ball in a dangerous attack.
Calvin Dinsley was sent off for the away side shortly after the interval for a second bookable offence, but Redditch managed to hold on for the remaining spell, taking all three points. Some tough defending made it difficult for the Dolphins to forge any attacking threat, with chances few and far between for Poole.
AFC Bournemouth loanee Joe Quigley was unable to take advantage of some good chances in the first half. The 6’2” striker, who scored on his Poole Town debut, has been tipped to make a strong impression for both Poole Town, and AFC Bournemouth in the long run.
After Poole Town managed a remarkable 10-game winning streak earlier in the season, the Dolphins have struggled to find their recent form in the league.
