MARK Molesley says his side have to rise to the challenge of one of the form sides in the league when they host Kings Langley in the Evo-Stik Southern Premier South tomorrow (3pm).

The match should represent the Terras’ first chance to show off new signing Cameron Murray, whose move from Dorchester Town was announced on Monday evening.

Molesley said: “Kings Langley are in great form, one of the form sides in the division, it’s another tough challenge, one we have got to rise to.”

The Lango have five wins from their last six matches, which has seen them surge up the table to now sit eighth.

Molesley’s squad suffered an upset on Tuesday, when they were beaten 3-1 by eighth-tier side Ramsbottom United in their FA Trophy second round replay but Molesley has said his side will come out fighting tomorrow.

Molesley said: “We have got to come back out fighting now and get back on that bike and give it everything we have got, which we will do – we always do.

“We will reflect on it, we will lick our wounds and we will come back stronger.

“I think this week is about resting up a few tired bodies and refreshing a few minds and getting ready for Saturday.”

Weymouth have slipped to third in the table, now behind Taunton Town and the Metropolitan Police, but can go top of the table should they win their games in hand over both of their rivals.

Molesley said: “We are third and we are chasing. We have got to chase, fight and we have got to work hard.

“This has shown that this league is very tight, there is a lot of competition in there now and every game presents its own challenges.

“We cannot dwell upon (the defeat against Ramsbottom) we have got to learn from it and move on.”

Langley are in good form at the minute, with five wins from their last six league matches.

The last time the two sides met Kings Langley walked away with the spoils after a 2-1 victory.

Jordan Rose was sent off after picking up two yellow cards inside 18 minutes, while Luke Wade-Slater’s 59th minute goal won it for Lango.

Callum Buckley suffered a concussion on Tuesday so is unlikely to be involved.

Sam Sherring took a knock in the same game but it is not yet known whether he will be available.

However, Yemi Odubade, who was substituted against Ramsbottom due to illness, should make the squad.
