BEACONSFIELD Town suffered back-to-back defeats in the BetVictor Southern Premier South for the first time in a month after a 3-1 loss at Poole Town on Tuesday night, writes Rob Stevens.

The Rams are fighting relegation this season and this most recent defeat sees them remain second from bottom in the table, two points behind Walton Casuals but with the advantage of a game in hand on them.

The visitors to the Tatnam Ground made the better start but it was Poole that broke the deadlock against the run of play when a 20-yard strike from Corby Moore found the bottom corner past keeper Myles Bowman.

Poole doubled the advantage as a shot hit the crossbar and the rebound was saved by Bowman, but the loose ball was tapped home by Harry Baker before the keeper could recover again.

Beaconsfield suffered a blow in the second half when substitute Callum Webb came off worse in a clash of heads with a Poole opponent and could not continue. Webb was treated for a nasty gash to his lip and chin at the Dorchester Hospital.

The Rams halved the arrears as James Ewington ran onto a through ball from Louis Stead and rounded the keeper to fire home.

Poole however immediately restored their two-goal lead when a shot from Luke Pardoe was fired home from the right-hand side of the box.

Beaconsfield return to Holloways Park for the visit of Hendon this Saturday (3pm) looking to improve upon the 2-1 defeat suffered in the reverse fixture back in November.
