WEYMOUTH manager Mark Molesley says the Dorset Senior Cup quarter-final clash against Dorchester Town tonight comes at a good time for his side (7.45pm).
The Terras have one loss in their last 14 matches currently, and come into the derby battle on a high, following their 2-0 victory over National League South side St Albans City a week ago in the FA Trophy third qualifying round replay.
Molesley said: “We want to continue to build on our confidence and carry on working on everything that we are doing in training so the game comes at a good time for us and we just want to keep that momentum going.”
The Terras were without a game on Saturday and were not scheduled to play one, while Dorchester had been set to face Staines Town in a game that was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.
Molesley said: “I am looking forward to the game, obviously we were without a game on Saturday so we are looking forward to getting out on the pitch at home.”
The Terras had a very abrupt run in the Dorset Senior Cup last year, as they fell at the first round stage to Bridport in a 2-0 defeat.
When asked if it was something that they are targeting this year, Molesley said: “We go into every game wanting to win the game.
“Obviously certain games take higher priority over others, having said that this is a bit of a derby for the fans, we need to get the balance right of making sure people keep up with their match fitness but also we want to win the game.”
In positive news for Weymouth, the game is set to see the return of Ashley Wells.
Wells has been on the bench for the past two games but has not made an appearance, but Molesley confirmed he will play a role during the match.
Molesley said: “Ash has been on the bench for the last few games and has been training hard so he will definitely play at some point in the game.
“We are looking forward to welcoming him back.”
