Dorchester Town manager Callum Brooks admits the Magpies must cure their slow-starting ailment after Hayes & Yeading took a 3-2 victory from their BetVictor Southern Premier South clash at the Clayson Stadium.
Brooks’ troops were 3-0 down in 22 minutes as a Jacob Cook piledriver and a James Clark brace capitalised on some slack Dorchester defending.
To their credit, the Magpies replied with two quick-fire Tom Bath goals but again found the task insurmountable in a match that mirrored the 3-2 home defeat to Hartley Wintney earlier this month.
Brooks told Echosport: “Nick Hutchings (goalkeeper) bar the three goals hasn’t made a save all night.
“We’ve got two men down for the first goal which could’ve affected pressure on the ball but they go in once in I don’t know how many at this level.
“He’s hit a worldie and we find ourselves 1-0 down. A lot seems to have gone like that. When anyone shoots at our goal it’s flown in.”
