WEYMOUTH face another tough away test at Banbury United in the Evo-Stik Southern Premier Division tomorrow (3pm).
The Terras currently sit third in the table and face the Puritans who occupy eighth and are unbeaten in six games, drawing four and winning twice.
Weymouth boss Mark Molesley said: “It is another tough game, they are another team hot on our tails. I thought they were one of the best sides in our league last year and they have got clear play-off aspirations as well.
“It is another tough test for us.”
The Terras have had an unexpected break after their match against Dunstable Town was postponed after a frozen pitch last weekend.
Next Tuesday’s scheduled match against Royston Town has been rearranged for Tuesday, January 23, while the away clash with Dunstable is set for Tuesday, January 30.
Molesley said: “I think the lads are just itching to get back out and into competition in the league.”
Weymouth have five wins in their last seven games and beat Chesham United 1-0 in their last game.
Looking ahead Molesley said: “I think the more the season goes on the more motivated and together we get so we are looking forward to the challenge that awaits us.
“We are a young side but we are a hungry side, we are together and we work hard for each other.
“We feel that we are more than a match for anyone if we compete in the way we know we can.”
Molesley is aware of the dangers that their opponents pose, as he acknowledges their performances last season which saw them finish sixth in the table.
“I think they had a good season last year, they were one of the higher placed teams in our league last year. I thought they played very good football last year and this year they have acquired some more experienced players.”
Jake McCarthy is out he recovers from appendicitis and Ashley Wells is unlikely to return.
Brandon Goodship and Calvin Brooks are expected to feature for the Terras, with the latter having made his comeback in Weymouth’s last match against Chesham.
Goodship, who has scored league 13 goals for the Terras this season, has signed a contract extension with the club which Molesley explains is until the end of next season.
Molesley said: “I think it is a real statement of intent from the club to show what their intentions are, that they are looking to secure their assets and Brandon has done fantastically well so far.
