Calvin Brooks said in an interview that he was delighted to be back at Weymouth, and Mark Molesley claimed in another interview that he felt his side had all the tools to cope with being the league leaders.

That evening Weymouth produced a stunning comeback to win 2-1 at Tiverton Town, Jake McCarthy equalised before Brandon Goodship scored in the 91st minute to earn his side the three points.
