Dorchester Town will aim to get their league campaign back on track with a six-pointer against Maidenhead United this weekend.

A 4-0 loss against Havant and Waterlooville on Tuesday condemned the Magpies to their fourth straight league deafeat. Despite an impressive FA Cup and FA Trophy run, Dorchester have slipped to 13th in the Blue Square South.

The Magpies will be without new signing Danny Green. The full back was Dorchester's saviour against Didcot Town, scoring both goals in a 2-1 win. However the former Truro City player could be out of action for several weeks after picking up a knee injury against Havant.

With six points separating sixth placed Hayes and Yeading and 21st place Hornchurch, the Dorset side will be desperate to get three points over a side just one point behind them in the league table.

The Magpies have only won away from home in the league once this season. A 2-1 win over Sutton United on September 1 is Dorchester's only three points claimed on the road.

Following Saturday's trip to Maidenhead, Dorchester will not return to league action until they face Sutton United on December 8.

The Magpies will face Luton Town twice in the space of seven days, when they face the Hatters in both the FA Cup second round and the FA Trophy first round.
