Hitman Jason Prior says his feelings on Dorking Wanderers’ present league position in National League South are “bitter sweet” given points dropped so far and he sees no reason why the progressive club can’t make the play-offs this season.

The prolific 30-year-old striker missed out on the 2-0 win against Welling United on Saturday – an eighth victory in 19 – with a calf strain but will be fit to face second-placed Weymouth this weekend where another success could elevate Marc White’s team to fourth in the table.

Taking aside the FA Trophy victory against local rivals Leatherhead , three successive league draws, against Wealdstone, Chelmsford City and Concord Rangers, could have yielded more points for sixth-placed Wanderers prior to the win against The Wings and Prior reflected: “Lately we’ve let a couple of winning positions go in those draws which isn’t ideal.

“It’s frustrating when you look back at the points we could have had which would have meant us being higher up the table, so in that respect it’s bitter sweet.”
