SWINDON Supermarine made it three wins in a row following a 2-0 victory in a solid showing over Dorchester Town at the Webbswood Stadium on Saturday.

Marine, who moved up to third in the PitchingIn Southern League Premier Division South, recalled Brad Hooper after suspension and handed a first start in his second spell for the club to David Pratt up top.

Dorchester made it tough by setting up very compactly and stopped Marine from playing their usual passing game, but slowly the hosts began to shade the possession.

Hooper saw a good effort fly over in the 26th minute, while Jake Lee failed to test the visiting goalkeeper with a couple of headers that went just wide from set pieces.

Marine stepped it up a gear in the second period and the pressure finally told when Michael Hopkins' dangerous cross was sliced into his own goal by Josiah Dunstan on the hour.

David Pratt had the ball in the net not long after but was adjudged to be offside.

Dorchester held on bravely, but in the end it was the Supermarine skipper Matt Liddiard who sealed the points with a well directed header from a corner late on.
