WEYMOUTH manager Mark Molesley said his side can take a lot of confidence from winning their last three as his side faces St Neots Town at the Bob Lucas Stadium tomorrow in the Evo-Stik Southern Premier Division (3pm).

The run of results started with a 6-0 thumping of Farnborough at home before coming from behind in a 2-1 win away at Royston Town and beating Merthyr Town 3-0 last weekend.

Molesley said: “I think we can take a lot of confidence from our last three performances, we have scored a lot of goals and we have not given away too many chances so we are definitely in a good place.

Molesley added: “But it is feet firmly on the ground. What has happened is now gone but it is about what is in front of us and the next game is the most important.”

The match with St Neots is the Terras’ third at home in eight games as they contended with numerous away travels.

Molesley said: “I am looking forward to being back at home, we have had a lot of away travels so it is nice to get back at home in front of our home crowd and stay off the coach.”

Weymouth currently sit third in the table with 66 points, six points off leaders King’s Lynn Town while Saturday’s opponents are 11th with 47 points.

The last time the two sides met, Brandon Goodship and Harry Baker scored the goals in a 2-1 away win for the Terras back in October.

When asked what he will take from that match into their game tomorrow, Molesley said: “That they are a very good side, they seem to raise their game against so called bigger sides in the league. They have had some good results and good performances against the teams in the play-offs.

“They are a good team with plenty of threats that we need to be wary of. We will not be underestimating them.”

Abdulai Baggie should be available after his first child was born on Sunday.

Molesley said: “It is fantastic news with the birth of his first child. Congratulations to him and his partner.”

Mark Cooper participated in training on Tuesday but is unlikely to feature, while Ben Thomson missed out on the 3-0 win at Merthyr Town and will be assessed before the game.
