MARK Molesley says Weymouth have to earn their respect back as they prepare to travel to Walton Casuals in the Evo-Stik Southern Premier South tomorrow (3pm).
The Terras will be looking to recover after disappointing results against the Met Police and Tuesday night’s 2-1 loss away at Merthyr Town.
Molesley said: “We are a good side, and we have got everything to prove again now.
“We have got to earn our respect back.”
To do this, the Terras will have to find a way past the Stags who currently sit 18th in the league.
Casuals are in a tough run of form, with just two points from their last five matches after draws with Chesham and Beaconsfield.
Commenting on the Stags, Molesley said: “It is another real, tough game. They are a very good footballing side.
“They have got a new astro and they play some good football. There are no easy games in this league, they are coming thick and fast.”
The last game between the two sides proved to be a classic encounter.
Abdulai Baggie and Josh Wakefield had handed the Terras a 2-0 lead at half-time.
However, goals from Taureen Roberts and Jack Battie saw the Stags level after 84 minutes, before Brandon Goodship shot in a 90th minute winner.
Molesley says his side need to find their confidence again and come out fighting, after a run of form that will see the Terras slip to fourth if the Met Police avoid defeat in their game in hand.
Molesley said: “We need to lick our wounds and come out fighting, we need to show what we are about now. We need to dig deep and find our confidence again.”
When asked what has led to this loss of confidence, Molesley pointed towards a number of factors, saying that it is a confluence of many aspects.
He said: “Confidence is a culmination of things, we have had a lot of injuries, we are a bit patched up with people coming in and out.
“There isn’t a chance for us to feel sorry for ourselves. We will not be doing that, yes we have had challenges this season but so has everyone else.
“It is how you rise to these challenges, it is how you react to these challenges.
“I am looking for leaders, I am looking for men to stand up and be counted.”
Sam Sherring and Luke Nippard will be back involved after missing Tuesday’s loss due to playing for the Bournemouth under-21s.
