EVERY game counts, says Mark Molesley as his Weymouth team look to reclaim the top of the table through games in hand, beginning with a trip to Gosport Borough in the Evo-Stik Southern Premier South tonight (7.45pm).
Gosport notably ended Weymouth’s 13-month unbeaten run at home in the league the last time they met, with a 3-1 win at the Bob Lucas Stadium back in December.
When asked if Gosport being the side that ended that run of form at home adds extra motivation for his side Molesley disagreed, nodding towards the league table and the potential rewards on offer there.
Molesley said: “I don’t think we need any extra motivation for any game now for the rest of the season, we have got something to fight for. Every game counts.
“Salisbury is gone now we just look to the next game and that is what takes our full focus, and whoever it is we give them the same amount of respect.
“We have just got to make sure we reach our heights now, we have got to really concentrate on ourselves and make sure we get to the standards we set and it gives us a good chance of winning the game like we saw (referring to the 4-3 win on Saturday against Salisbury)”.
The Terras can now re-take the top spot through winning their games in hand over top of the table Taunton Town.
“They took our record away from us and it just shows you that in this league every team presents its own challenges.
“Gosport are much improved and doing well and we have got to be ready for that challenge.
“We have got to dust ourselves off, nothing has been won (after the Salisbury victory) we go to Gosport in a confident mood and hopefully start trying to chase Taunton down,” he said.
Callum Buckley is likely to be in contention for a squad berth at Gosport, having recovered from concussion, and was an unused substitute against Salisbury.
However, Sam Sherring and Tiago Sa are likely two weeks away from returning after they picked up knocks recently.
