United showed they are on the way up with their second successive
victory against a team which they have struggled against in the past.
Atherstone's manager Ron Bradbury hinted in midweek that he would be looking for new
players and the threat has appeared to work, although he is unlikely to call off his
search on the strength of two performances.
This victory leaves the 'Adders' in tenth place in the Dr Martens League premier
division, but they are in a clutch of six teams on seven points.
They need another good showing on Wednesday night at Salisbury Town, who are on equal
points and who will be anxious to bounce back from a heavy 4-1 defeat by Gresley Rovers on
Atherstone produced some superb football in beating Dorchester. They deservedly took
the lead in the 33rd minute through Paul White and then increased the margin when Lee
Middleton scored from a dozen yards.
United were still well in control in the second period and though Dorchester pulled
back a goal after 70 minutes through Ghazghazi, White restored the lead with his second
goal of the match two minutes later.
