WEYMOUTH manager Mark Molesley called for a true Terras’ performance after watching his side taste defeat for the first time this season at Chippenham Town.
Chris Zebroski’s strike handed the Bluebirds a 1-0 victory at Hardenhuish Park to inflict Weymouth’s first loss in their sixth game since winning promotion to the Vanarama National League South after an absence of nine years.
Molesley’s men now face early pacesetters Wealdstone at the Bob Lucas Stadium today (3pm) looking for a quick response to the setback in Wiltshire.
Speaking to theterras.com, Molesley said: “That’s the sort of game we want, it’s the sort of game we worked so hard to get into the league for – these big games.
“Hopefully it will be a bumper crowd on a Bank Holiday down at the Bob Lucas and we’ll go and show what we’re about – get back on the horse – right a few wrongs and hopefully have a positive performance.”
Referring to the Chippenham loss, a “hurting” Molesley added: “I’m disappointed to taste defeat for the first time this season.
“It’s hurting – I want it to hurt, I want the boys to be disappointed, which they are.
“After a really bright start, a few chances, we just didn’t have that cutting edge, which was a shame.
“Unfortunately we conceded on the counter in the first half. Second half we got a little bit loose, a little bit frustrated at times.”
Weymouth continue to assess strikers Ben Thomson and Josh McQuoid (both hamstring).
