WEYMOUTH boss Mark Molesley rued a good away performance which was ruined by two bad spells which meant Weymouth fell to a 3-1 defeat at Hitchin Town.
It was the fourth consecutive defeat for the Terras that has seen them exit the FA Trophy and Dorset Senior Trophy as well as sustain two league defeats.
Molesley said: “Again we’ve done some very good things in the game, we’ve had two spells one in the first half one in the second where we were caught napping, weren’t organised.”
The feeling was exacerbated by how one of the goals was scored after Weymouth came very close to scoring themselves.
The Weymouth boss said: “We’ve got to get better and stop those spells happening because at the moment they’re causing us not to be where we want to be.”
Despite these spells the Terras’ manager was upbeat about the performance: “Other than the two spells I thought we had a lot of the ball, I thought we controlled the ball well and created some good chances.”
Weymouth’s preparation had been hampered with Calvin Brooks not being able to shake off an injury and with Ashley Wells becoming unavailable due to personal reasons.
Mark Molesley said: “I thought the boys responded well.”
Molesley added:”I think that’s the frustrating thing because we’ve been undone by a couple of sloppy bits of play in either half.”
The match also saw the debut of new signing Pat Suraci, who signed from Bognor Regis Town on Friday.
The Weymouth boss praised his new signing’s performance, saying: “I thought when we got him on the ball he looked a real threat. A good attacking outlet, a good attacking player for us.
“He gives us another quality player, hopefully he’ll do well for us.”
