BRANDON Goodship lauded Harry Baker’s impact as he provided an assist and scored a late goal in the 3-2 win away at Kings Langley in the Evo-Stik Southern Premier Division.
Baker came on in the 84th minute last Saturday and within 60 seconds had provided Goodship with an assist for his 37th goal of the season, before Baker added his 19th of the season in the second minute of injury time.
Goodship said: “That is what Bakes does, he is such a valuable member of the team and his goalscoring record for us this season has been unbelievable.
“The effect he has when he comes on is second to none and he did that again on Saturday so credit to him for producing the goods again.”
It capped a frantic end to a match which saw four goals, two for each side, in the last 16 minutes of the match.
Goodship said: “It was a tight game throughout and then obviously we got the two-goal advantage at the end and then we sort of made it difficult for ourselves and it ended up being a lot closer than we would have liked.”
The match was the second of two away trips in the space of three days, with the Terras having lost 2-0 at play-off rivals Kettering Town two days prior.
Goodship said: “We were quite disappointed with our performance at Kettering and it was obviously a quick turnaround to do that again at Kings Langley on Saturday and thankfully we did that.
“Hopefully we will get a bit more momentum on Saturday to take into the play-offs with us.”
The Terras’ striker is currently the top goalscorer in the league and, prior to last night’s games, was seven clear of his nearest rival.
Should he reach 40 goals for the season a fan has pledged to get a tattoo of Goodship’s face.
When asked about this, Goodship said: “He said it to me a few weeks ago, so I mean if he goes through with it, fair enough, but I have got to get the goals first.
“It would be a good achievement.”
Weymouth are at home against Hitchin Town on Saturday (3pm).
