PORTLAND United boss Simon Browne is looking to add to Petersfield Town’s “tale of woe” when the Blues make the trip to Hampshire in the Sydenhams Wessex Premier Division tomorrow (3pm).

Browne’s men go into the game having conceded a late equaliser to the Rams in a 2-2 draw at Grove Corner in September, one of only two positive results Town have had this season.

But Petersfield lie bottom of the league and have conceded 28 goals in their last four matches, most recently a 9-0 drubbing at the hands of Hamworthy United.

Browne told Echosport entering the match with “the right attitude” will be key as the Blues look to put September’s draw behind them.

He said: “They’re obviously going through a tough time. We’ll go there with the right attitude and see if we can add to their tale of woe.

“I think we thought the game might have been a bit easier than it was and we ended up with a point rather than three.”

The Blues have also failed to keep a clean sheet in the league this season, but Browne feels getting results is a more important trait for his side to develop.

“Winning games is more a priority. Ideally we’d like to win games three or four nil but I’d take a 5-3 any day of the week.

“I don’t think there’s anything majorly wrong defensively. At times we’ve been unfortunate. For me as an ex-defender you weren’t able to switch off for a minute. That’s perhaps an area we can look at,” he said.

Portland will be without the suspended Shaun Bessant, but Charlie Holland is fit again after a foot injury. Dan Payne and Adam Diaz are available for selection but Chris Clarke and Jamie Beasley are doubts.
