WEYMOUTH boss Mark Molesley admitted the Terras weren’t up to their “usual standards” in the 2-0 Evo-Stik Southern Premier Division defeat to Frome Town.
Goals from Jake Jackson and Darren Jefferies gave the Robins a deserved victory to end Weymouth’s stretch of six wins.
Molesley was left to rue an “array of chances” that went begging as the Terras pressed for a late goal in a high-octane finish to the game.
He told Echosport: “I don’t think we hit our usual standards. We huffed and puffed. We really pushed at the end.
“Despite us not playing at our best we still had quite an array of chances when you look back.
“Unfortunately we didn’t take them and it was fairly typical of our performance – a yard short, a bit slow with our passing and a bit of poor decision making at times.”
Despite having played six games in two and a half weeks, Molesley was reluctant to make any excuses for the defeat.
“We just looked a little bit blinkered, maybe with the travels, but I won’t make excuses. It was a perfect night for us with a great pitch and good crowd.
“Everything was there for us to go and put a good performance on and unfortunately it didn’t come and we were left frustrated, ruing a few missed chances.”
Molesley also praised Frome’s display, adding that his side had been “taught a bit of a lesson”.
He said: “We’ve been taught a bit of a lesson and it’s important that we grow up, we learn from it and we react quickly.
“I think they (Frome) defended magnificently. They really put their bodies on the line and blocked everything we threw at them, so full credit to them, it was a great defensive display.”
