BALTI Sports’ boss Marco Nott is eager to return to “winning ways” as his troops seek to end a sequence of five successive losses when hosting Corfe Castle at Weymouth College tomorrow (2pm).

Nott’s men last tasted victory following a 4-1 win over Shaftesbury Town Reserves in late October, the last of a 13-game unbeaten streak.

However, Corfe have enjoyed a resurgence in their form, scoring 12 goals in three successive wins to lift themselves from last place into 14th.

Speaking to Echosport, Nott, whose side drew 3-3 at Corfe earlier in the season, said: “It will be a tough game for sure, but we need to get back to winning ways as soon as possible.

“I believe it’s a chance to do that. We’re on a bad run of form, so we can turn it around as soon as we get that win.

“We’ve got three games prior to the New Year break, so we’re hoping to get on a run ourselves.”

Nott admitted Balti’s slump in results bears a striking resemblance to last season’s dip in form, causing a nosedive in league position.

He said: “At the moment it’s an absolute carbon copy, which we’re desperately trying to avoid.

“For whatever reason it’s a tricky period, it’s not like we’re getting bad players out on the pitch. Whether it’s a mental block, I don’t know. The sooner we get the win, the better.”

Striker Danny Andrews is nearing full fitness, but captain Ryan Dovell misses out with a chipped bone in his ankle. Josh Burton, Carl McClements and Scott Walker return, as could Ethan Devaney.
