Football: Terras and Magpies live updates

Last updated:

    Aidan Williams and Neil Walton are on hand to provide live updates as Weymouth face St Neots Town at the Bob Lucas Stadium and Dorchester travel away to face Chesham United in the Evo-Stik Southern Premier Division.
  • The Terras are on a three-match winning streak in the league having put six past Farnborough in their most recent outing at home, before travelling away and coming from a goal down to beat Royston 2-1 and Merthyr 3-0.
  • The Terras are third in the table and six points off the top spot, they face a side that is currently 11th in the table with 47 points and who have won their past three games, beating Dunstable 3-2 and Chesham 3-1 in the league and won their midweek Huntingdonshire Senior Cup semi-final 2-0 against St Ives Town.
  • Weymouth have won their last two encounters between the two sides, with Brandon Goodship and Harry Baker securing a 2-1 win in October.
  • Abdulai Baggie is expected to feature after his first child was born on Sunday, while Mark Cooper is not expected to make it and Ben Thomson will be assessed prior to the game.
  • Dorchester come into the away trip at Chesham with just one win in 16 league away games.
  • The Magpies have, however, picked up two points in their previous four away games – a 2-2 draw at Weymouth and a 3-3 draw at Gosport.
  • But they face a Chesham side that has risen to sixth place in the Evo-Stik Southern Premier Division, with four wins from their last five league matches.
  • Just two teams – Slough (48) and Farnborough (42) have scored more league goals at home this season than Chesham (41), although almost a third of those came in a 13-1 thrashing of cash-strapped Merthyr Town.
  • Dorchester could come up against ex-Terra Jefferson Louis, who has scored twice against the Magpies this season for Banbury, after the veteran forward switched to the Generals from the Puritans earlier this season.
  • The Magpies could also include new signings Ashley Pope and Lewis Leigh-Gilchrist in their matchday squad after the pair joined the club prior to today’s game.
