STEPHANE Zubar said Basingstoke showed a bit more desire than the Terras, as the visitors came away from the Bob Lucas Stadium with a 2-1 victory on Saturday.

The defender initially admitted he didn’t really know what he would put the result down to, but dismissed any notion of there being pressure in front of the home crowd.

When asked what he put the result down to, Zubar said: “I don’t really know to be honest.

“Before, the last two games I thought we did well, I thought we did really well to be honest and maybe the way we started the game, they (Basingstoke) showed a bit more desire I would say.

“After the second goal we tried hard to come back but I think it was a bit too late.”

The Terras came into the match off the back of two victories, a 4-3 win at Salisbury and then a 2-0 win away at Gosport Borough.

The result is not critical however, with the Terras able to go two points clear at the top via games in hand.

When asked if it was additional pressure having to replicate that same form at home, Zubar dismissed any notion that the match being at home would have anything to do with it.

Zubar said: “I don’t think it is anything to do with playing at home, it is no pressure. I just think it is the way we started, we have played a lot of games lately, and unfortunately it was just a bad day.

“We will go again and we will just have to move on.”

“We are all disappointed about what happened, we are going to think about it.

“In the next game we will get things right.”

Zubar required a bandage around his head in the second half, after he was inadvertently hit by one of the Basingstoke players.

“A player elbowed me, I don’t think he meant it but I was bleeding.

“But that did not stop me playing as usual, I tried my best and couldn’t score, I haven’t scored for a while but we take the positive out of it.”

Weymouth travel to promotion rivals Met Police on Saturday (3pm).
