WIMBORNE Town manager Steve Cuss was ‘desperately disappointed’ his side couldn’t keep a clean sheet against Fleet Town – but praised the Magpies for returning to winning ways.

The Dorset side put last weekend’s 7-0 thumping at Paulton Rovers behind them with a 2-1 win over the Southern League Division One South and West strugglers – thanks to goals from Mark Gamble and Aidan Sainsbury.

Partick Cox’s late strike denied Wimborne a clean sheet after conceding ten goals in their last two games.

“I was desperately disappointed” explained Cuss. “We have been working hard to stop conceding goals. Up to last week, we hadn’t conceded from a corner all season, and now we’ve let in two in our last three games.

“It is something we will continue to work on and will try to get better – but fortunately we had enough going forward to get the points.”

Wimborne struggled to dominate the first half against Fleet Town, but strung to life after the break with two fantastic goals.

Gamble ran half the length of the pitch before finishing calmly on 49 minutes, before Sainsbury doubled the Magpies’ advantage on the hour mark with a powerful drive.

For the second one, Aidan’s corner was a poor delivery” added Cuss.

“Once it came back to him, it was a great touch and strike for him to score the goal – so I’m delighted that Aidan got on the score sheet as well.”

Wimborne are in sixth place in the Southern League Division One South and West – ahead of tomorrow night’s away trip to Merthyr Town.
