Match Preview: Baffins vs United Services Portsmouth

Baffins return to action at PMC Stadium for Tuesday’s Portsea Island clash with United Services.

The clash - which kicks-off at 7:45pm - provides Danny Thompson’s side a chance of returning to winning ways in the Wessex Premier Division.


Thompson served a one-match touchline ban on Saturday as Rovers fell to a 2-1 defeat at Clayfields.


Kelvin Robinson gave Baffins an early lead in the contest with a spectacular bicycle-kick, but Hythe & Dibden struck twice after the interval to claim all three points.


Tom Dinsmore - signed in December - is yet to make his Baffins bow, but that could change on Tuesday night should he face his former club. He played an hour alongside Dillon North in the Reserves’ 6-0 victory on Saturday.


Brad Lethbridge joined on a dual-registration from Bognor Regis Town too late to feature at Hythe & Dibden on Saturday, but could be in contention to make his debut in the United Services fixture. The former Portsmouth forward joined Rovers after the injury of Tom Vincent, and the suspension of Jason Parish - who scored in the previous meeting this term.


Brad Gale and Kelvin Robinson were also on target in the 3-0 rout which secured Baffins passage to the next round of the Hampshire Senior Cup.


United Services currently occupy 14th position in the Wessex Premier standings, five points ahead of Pagham in the nearest drop-zone place.


Tickets for the Wessex Premier clash can only be purchased on the turnstiles on Tuesday 31 January (7:45pm kick-off) and are priced £6 adults and £4 concessions. Cash and contactless payments are accepted around PMC Stadium.
