Terras are full value

GARRY Hill described Weymouth as `full value’ for their comfortable 3-1 Conference South success at Hayes.

Kirk Jackson and Roy O’Brien put the Terras into a commanding interval lead over their midtable hosts, before Charlie Macdonald sealed the points late on.

And boss Hill hailed his side for achieving a league double over the Middlesex outfit.

He told Echosport: “It was a good win which we were full value for, especially for an excellent first half performance.

“Kirk Jackson and Roy O’Brien put us two goals ahead at the interval and, to be honest, the lead could quite easily have been far greater.

“After the break, the game became stretched which we didn’t need to do and Hayes scored and came back into it.

“We were grateful to keeper Jason Matthews on a few occasions, particularly when we were 1-0 up and he made a great save and also another stop near the end.

“It was good when Charlie Macdonald scored near the end to settle any nerves but we always looked in control on a difficult pitch.”

Hill added: “The attitude of the players was excellent because they kept working in an effort to move up the table.

“We’ve won four of the six league games in my time at the club and I definitely think we are moving in the right direction.

“There’s two games left for us now, away at Sutton tomorrow and at home on Saturday against St Albans,
and hopefully we can continue in a similar vein and end the season on a high.

“I must also praise the 150 or so fans who travelled to support us.

“Considering both sides were in mid-table and there was not a great deal to play for, it gave the players a big boost to see so many fans here and it was great to see.”

Midfielder Shaun Wilkinson played a big part in the Church Road success, his pin-point corners setting up Jackson’s and O’Brien’s goals.

Hill said: “Set-pieces are something we’ve worked on and our delivery, especially for the goals, was excellent.

“We’ve got a lot of big, tall players in the side, especially at the back, and it’s important we take advantage of that when we get the chance.

“If you get good quality crosses into the box on corners, it can be very difficult to defend against and so I was pleased Shaun was able to do that for the goals.”
