WEYMOUTH manager Mark Molesley says his side’s record of going a whole year unbeaten at home in the league is ‘one to be proud of’, and says the fans know not to leave early.
The Terras’ last home defeat in the league came in a 2-0 loss to Frome Town on October 24, 2017.
Molesley said: “It shows you that we are making this a bit of a fortress, a year unbeaten at your home ground, that’s not a bad record. That’s one that the boys should be proud of and one that they should be fighting to keep intact.”
Molesley admitted he had been aware, but had forgotten about it in the run up to the 3-2 win at home against Walton Casuals, which guaranteed that they would hit the year mark unbeaten at home in the league.
Molesley said: “You know what, Josh Barton (Weymouth Director) told me a couple of weeks ago, he said if we were to beat Walton we would be a year unbeaten at home in the league.
“I completely forgot about that, with the emotion of the game and pre-match, but I do not need to share that with the boys or put any undue pressure. We go out and we prepare, we take it game in, game out.”
Molesley says he wants his side to keep the run going and keep delighting the home fans, who were sent into raptures after Brandon Goodship’s 90th-minute winner on Saturday against Walton.
The Terras are currently on top of the Evo-Stik Southern Premier South, with 27 points after suffering just one league loss so far this season.
Molesley said: “It is one to be proud of and it gives us another little carrot, another little aim to keep that run going and to keep your home faithful happy because, like I said don’t leave early.
“The fans know not to leave early, they know they are going to get entertained and sometimes you see the good, the bad, the ugly, fortunately the good is outweighing the bad at the moment.”
