WEYMOUTH assistant manager Paul Maitland is looking forward to a spectacle against Slough Town in the Evo-Stik Southern Premier Division at the Bob Lucas Stadium tomorrow (3pm).

The Terras are hoping to react following a 2-0 defeat in their last outing against Hereford and face a side that beat them 3-0 the last time they met.

Maitland said: “It is important to put in a positive performance and have a positive reaction. I do not feel we played badly up at Hereford last week.

“I would expect both sides to come out and put on a good show. We are hoping for a big crowd and I think it will be a good spectacle between two sides that like to play good, attacking attractive football.

“I am expecting Slough not to come out quite so hard as they did up there and not be quite so attacking, but it is an important game for both teams.”

“We are looking to bounce back, they are looking to get back into the play-off places, they have got a lot of games in hand but you have to turn games into points.

“There is a lot riding on the game but I would much rather be involved in games like this than dead rubbers.”

Slough currently sit in sixth, 12 points and three places behind Weymouth but with seven games in hand and are unbeaten in their last four league matches against the Terras.

Weymouth have had snowy conditions and very cold weather in the build-up to Saturday and when asked if it puts the game in doubt Maitland said: “You just do not know, I think everyone is just sitting and waiting to see what happens.”
