Wimborne have greatly improved since the last time these teams met, particularly in attacking areas. Forward Harry Baker has seven goals in his last six games, mostly supplied by energetic midfielder Dan Bartlett. Goalkeeper Shane Murphy has been a huge part of their recent upturn in form.
Manor Farm have been consistently inconsistent of late but the talent without the squad is always capable of winning any game. New signing Frankie Artus impressed on his debut last week despite the result and Jake Gosling has been well amongst the goals since he was given the captains armband last month.
The form book favours the hosts who have won four games in a row which has catapulted them to 3rd in the league. Farm did win 3 on the spin but have since lost twice and rather emphatically so in both. Farm did win at Wimborne’s New Cuthbury in the FA Trophy this season (2-3), which was also despite a bad run of form at the time.
