WEYMOUTH boss Mark Molesley says his squad have every right to be confident as he readies them to travel to Salisbury for their Evo-Stik Southern Premier South clash tomorrow (3pm).
The Terras have had an unexpected rest after their trip to Hendon on Tuesday night was postponed due to snowy conditions, while Salisbury also saw their trip to Kings Langley postponed.
The Terras have had five draws in their last eight matches in all competitions, and Molesley concedes that there have been some lessons learned.
He said: “There have been some valuable lessons learned, we have not quite hit the heights at certain times in the games.
“But I think in every single game we have shown glimpses of our real selves and we just need to consistently show that throughout a full 90 minutes.
“We have got every right to be confident, we are a good side and we have got everything to fight for.”
Molesley also bemoaned the injuries that have befallen his team throughout their season so far, but he is sure they will become more fortunate.
“I am sure when we start to be able to manage to field a consistent team regularly I am sure that the tide will turn and we will get a little bit more good fortune with some of the decisions that have gone against us, and some of the injuries that we are picking up.”
Still, Molesley knows his squad are confident in spite of their injury misfortune, that has seen Tiago Sa, Callum Buckley and Sam Sherring out with knocks recently.
Molesley said: “We are always confident, we have had a couple of ups and downs lately.
“We have not had the consistency in our team as we did last season and that is through a little bit of ill fortune with injuries and suspensions and other bits and pieces.
“We are looking forward to just trying to get everyone back fit, get a settled team together and then plan our assault, trying to climb that table.”
In their last encounter, Ben Thomson struck in the 87th minute to provide the Terras with all three points.
Yet goals can be counted upon to appear, as there has not been a 0-0 draw in this fixture since 1937.
Weymouth also have a good record against teams at the top of the table so far this season.
They are the only team unbeaten in matches involving the top five, with three wins and two draws this season, yet Weymouth have won just once in their last 10 visits to Salisbury, who have nine wins from 12 games at home so far in the league.
