Wimborne Town looking to upset Poole Town in Red Insure Cup clash
WIMBORNE Town are hoping to upset local rivals Poole Town tonight as the sides meet in the Red Insure Cup at Tatnum.
The Magpies will want to put two disappointing cup exits behind them – but won’t have it easy against the Dolphins who are flying high in the Southern Premier League.
“We’ve let ourselves down in two cup competitions – so the remaining two competitions are vitally important for us” explained Wimborne manager Steve Cuss.
“It’s a chance to get out there and play against the top opposition. We’ve got a tough draw against Poole, but we know we can give them a good game.

“We are short of local derbies this season and the chance to play a team from a higher division makes this game all the more enticing.”
Wimborne have already knocked AFC Totton from the Southern Premier League out of the competition – and will be hoping to build on last week’s 8-1 demolition job over Guildford City.
Goalkeeper Jason Harvell still remains a doubt, with Cuss expecting him to be ready for Saturday’s game against Didcot Town.
“It’s still early in the season and we are finding our way of playing” added Cuss.
“We’ve brought players in and gradually it’s all gelling – and we’re looking comfortable and understanding each other.
“We’re an evolving squad and we’ve got to keep working hard on that.”
