Wimborne Town boss Matty Holmes admitted compliments from rival coaching staff had been “great to hear” but could not deny they counted for nothing, Bournemouth Echo report.
Magpies were punished in the final 10 minutes once again as Swindon Supermarine struck a quickfire double to condemn the visitors to a 3-2 reverse. An own goal from Marine’s Kevin Sawyer had put the Cuthbury club in front at Webbswood Stadium before Conor McDonagh levelled eight minutes after the restart.
A slick move involving Luke Holmes and Paddy Hester then allowed Stefan Penny to make it 2-1 and put Wimborne back in the box seat.
But goals from strike duo Bradley Gray and Stuart Fleetwood within two minutes of each other proved Magpies’ downfall, as they slumped to their eighth defeat from 12 league contests.
Holmes told the Daily Echo: “It’s Groundhog Day at the moment. We played so well in the first half and went 1-0 up, we played beautiful football and their manager admitted the way we passed the ball in the first half caused them all sorts of problems.
“We are giving teams a run for their money and they are all saying ‘oh what a good team you are at Wimborne.'”
