WEYMOUTH have to be on their mettle according to manager Mark Molesley when they face Dunstable Town away in the Evo-Stik Southern Premier Division on Saturday.

The Terras currently sit third in the table with 44 points, 21 places and 38 points ahead of Dunstable.

The two sides met twice in the league last season with both encounters ending in a draw while Weymouth won their FA Trophy qualifying encounter 4-1.

The Terras on a good run of form, with one defeat in their last seven matches, and ground out a 1-0 win against Chesham despite being a man down for over 60 minutes.

Speaking after the Chesham win Molesley said: “We have got to be right on our mettle and show the same discipline, concentration and focus as we did today, we’ve got to build on today.”

Weymouth will be without Mark Cooper after he received a straight red card against Chesham while they will also be without Pat Suraci who left following the expiry of his one month loan deal from Bognor.

Molesley isn’t looking at Dunstable’s league position ahead of the match, as he said: “Full focus on Dunstable who are, despite their league position, from everyone I speak to a really tricky outfit.”

Six of Dunstable’s last nine defeats in the league have been by a single goal and he acknowledges their difficult position, as he said: “Their results and games are getting tighter, they’re fighting for their lives and these are difficult games.

“We’ve got everything to prove again.”

Molesley will not be taking the encounter lightly, as he said: “We take every team seriously and I have had good reports about Dunstable that they pose a real threat so we have got to be right on it.

“There are no easy games in this league.”

Molesley has said he will see how Calvin Brooks settles over the week having had him make his return from injury against Chesham, coming in for James Hayter in the 32nd minute.

Brandon Goodship could appear for the side having made his third appearance since returning from injury, although Molesley admits: “We’ve probably had to play him a little bit more than we would have liked. We would rather be overcautious with people.

“Brandon has undoubted quality, you want him in your side.”

The match against Dunstable is the start of three successive away matches that meaning their next match at home, where the Terras are on a run of four successive wins, will not be until Saturday December 23.
