Cautious boss Tom Killick urged his Poole Town players to keep their feet on the ground following the dramatic win at Concord Rangers.

Dolphins moved to within two points of safety after Steve Devlin’s fizzing strike in second-half stoppage time gave them a 1-0 victory against their National South relegation rivals. Hungerford Town’s 1-0 home loss to doomed Whitehawk also helped Poole’s cause, with Killick’s men still able to catch both Hungerford and Concord, who meet on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Poole take on visitors Whitehawk in their penultimate game of the league campaign. Reflecting on his team’s survival hopes, Killick told the Daily Echo: “Up until Saturday, it was looking very unlikely and now there are some possibilities.

“But it’s important not to get carried away because things are still out of our hands. It’s going to be difficult for us.

“But we were very buoyed by the performance and the result against Concord and, clearly, the manner of the result is very good for morale.”
