Wimborne ease past ten-man Poole Town in cup second round
A late flurry from Wimborne Town helped them knock out Dorset rivals Poole Town from the Red Insure Cup.
The Magpies took an early lead through Mickey Hubbard, but had to wait to the closing stages to add to their tally.
Poole Town's chances of progressing to the third round were given a huge blow when Will Spetch was shown a straight red card for bringing down Jamie Davidson in the penalty area.
Hubbard scored the resulting penalty to give the Magpies the early lead - and hand Poole a daunting task.

The Dolphins were forced to play with ten men for over seventy minutes - giving Wimborne the upper hand.
Frustration was beginning to take its toll on Poole, with captain Michael Walker booked for a foul and then kicking the ball away.
The Magpies struggled to make their numerical advantage count - but did finally double their lead in the final minute, when Hubbard's free-kick was too hot for Dolphins goalkeeper Nick Hutchings.
Wimborne were handed a flattering scoreline when Steve Smith made the most of a quick break, chipping the ball past Hutchings in injury time.
Warren Byerley came close to claiming a consolation goal for The Dolphins - but his drive came back off the post.
