WEYMOUTH boss Mark Molesley feels his side can handle “any environment” after the Terras beat Hartley Wintney 3-0 to continue their Evo-Stik Southern Premier South title charge.

Goals from Yemi Odubade, Ben Thomson and Cameron Murray saw the Terras claim an important three points on the road, with all three of their title rivals also winning.

Discussing the pitch, which saw the ball bobbling around during the match, Molesley said: “It is quite obvious we like to play with the football and move it around and that surface was not great for it but it just shows that we can handle any surface, any game, any environment.

“The boys have stood up and handled that challenge really well. We have not done anything yet. It is just another game, another three points.”

It was a calm performance from the Terras, despite the final run in being in full flow.

However, Molesley said that it is no different, saying that his side have been playing under pressure all season and partly attributed it to the team’s performances last season.

Molesley said: “There is pressure before a ball is kicked at this football club, I think last season’s exploits, they did really well and got Weymouth fans to believe again.

“The crowd has come up, they have voted on their feet, they obviously like what they see, they see that the players are giving everything for the shirt.

“They have created expectations and pressure.

“Every manager has thrown the pressure on us this season, which is understandable, but by doing that these players have played under pressure all season.

“Even before a ball is kicked they are under pressure so it honestly feels no different to us. It honestly feels no different to us.

“The way we play has not changed, the way we prepare has not changed we just continue to try and improve and get better every week.

“That is the way we are and that is the way we will stay.”

Ben Thomson grabbed the second goal for the Terras, when a ball was lofted forward and he successfully challenged the goalkeeper for the ball before firing home.

Molesley praised his side’s determination saying that they got the fruits from their hard work.

Molesley said: “We never gave up on lost balls, we harried and we chased and we got the fruits from that through our hard work and never say die attitude that we have shown on the whole all season.

“It came together well in a tough game, the games come thick and fast and they come big again (tomorrow), the next game is always the biggest game and that is certainly the case this Tuesday.”

Brennan Camp missed the game, as he stayed with parent club Bournemouth to play for a youth side.

Molesley explained: “He stayed and played for AFC Bournemouth, he was better off getting 90 minutes there with the good relationship we have there.

“Similarly with Luke Nippard, we have got positive reinforcements there if need be and then at the moment defensively. I am not going to change our defensive line too much at the moment, they are doing wonderfully well.

“It is great to have Brennan signed up, and give us that reinforcement of a really good player.”

The Terras host the Met Police tomorrow (7.45pm).
