Dorchester Town boss Callum Brooks believes Blackfield & Langley exploited Tom Blair’s poor disciplinary record in their 2-1 BetVictor Southern Premier South win at the Gang Warily.

Blair was sent off for committing two bookable offences – the latter for alleged simulation – as Dorchester slipped to a third-straight away defeat in four matches.

Two cautions increased Blair’s tally to five bookable offences in four games this season.

Blair, 20, spent a prolonged spell on the sidelines last season after seeing red twice before December and was one of three players, alongside Alhaji Sesay and Callum Rose, to be dismissed twice.

The winger was also sent off against Weymouth in 2017, although later had that decision overturned after the Magpies provided video evidence to support their appeal.
