FA Cup

Both Weymouth and Dorchester are in FA Cup action as they look to book their places into the first round of the competition proper.

The Magpies have the pick of the last round of qualifying as they play Bristol Rovers at The Avenue Stadium.

Their opponents are bringing around 1200 visiting fans but manager Graham Kemp told Wessex FM he's confident their own fans will be in full voice.

He said; "They've really got behind us since I've been there. I think Bristol Rovers are sending a lot of fans down. Well they'll need to be a lot down to out sing our lot."

Meanwhile with 1,200 Bristol Rovers supporters expected to arrive in Dorchester today the Police have issued some advice.

They're warning us to expect the Market Car Park to be very busy.

The Junction and Weatherspoons have also been designated as pubs for arriving fans.

Dorchester supporters are being advised to walk and not drive to the Avenue Stadium.

The Terras are up against Braintree Town at the Bob Lucas and go into their FA Cup match on the back of a convincing 3-1 away to Dunstable Town in the league.

Boss Jason Matthews said; "We've got a tough game against what is a tough side but I feel if we play to our strengths then we can produce on the day. I feel there's no reason why we won't be getting a positive result."

Bridport are playing today and line up against Bristol Manor Farm at home in the league.

Portland are also at home to Hamworthy United Reserves.
