Atherstone United (2) 3
Dorchester Town (0) 1
[DR MARTENS PREMIER DIVISION]

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 Saturday.

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.
