Hamworthy United and Bournemouth FC currently sit at opposite ends of the table with the two teams facing off on Tuesday night at Victoria Park in the Wessex League Premier Division.

Hammers boss, Tim Sills, is adamant that "you have to respect every team in this division" as the sides are set to meet after two very different starts to the campaign.

Whilst the Poole-based club have yet to lose in the league, winning six and drawing twice, their hosts, in stark contrast have only won three and lost six of their opening nine games.

Speaking to NERVE SPORT ahead of the tie, Sills added: "Every team in this league, on its day, can produce a very good performance and potenntially shock some of the so-called bigger boys - or those at those at the top of the league."

Having just come off the back of a comfortable 3-0 win over a tough AFC Portchester side, Sills admits "it will be a different type of game" than the one they faced on Saturday  at the County Ground, and that the team will not be taking anything for granted come kick-off.

The Hammers boss continued: "If we are on it we should have too much [for them], but there is absolutely no guarntee of that.

"We are definitely looking to there and make sure we go play the football we know, and show them the maximum respect as well."

Hamworthy currently sit 6th in the with Poppies lying in 18th place ahead of the game which is sheduled to kick-off at 7.45pm.
