Mark Molesley paid tribute to the impact of substitute Cameron Murray in Weymouth’s 3-0 victory against Concord Rangers in the National League South.
The Terras were leading 1-0 when Murray was introduced in the 56th minute, but Yemi Odubade doubled the lead before Murray himself sealed the victory with a third.
The Weymouth boss was delighted with the extra energy his Murray added to his side’s performance.
Mark Molesley told theterras.com, “I think our first substitution, Cameron Murray, had the energy when he came on and we needed that.
“We were sloppy at times, sometimes picking the wrong option at the wrong time and looked like we lack our usual buzz and energy a little bit.
“With Cameron Murray there is one guy who doesn’t lack that, so we were keen to get him on to inject that into us and I felt he did that.
“He obviously got his goal as well which put the icing on the cake for us.”
Mark Molesley admitted that sympathised with Josh Wakefield who wasn’t brought on in the victory but did offer some insight as to why he wasn’t utilised.
He added: “This is very much a squad game and I can’t emphasise that enough, Josh Wakefield should be the most disappointed one because he was out-standing at Sholing.
“Ash Wells didn’t even make the squad and we’ve got some good players out on loan.
“Josh Wakefield deserved to be on that pitch today but he wasn’t and we went with other players to bring on today.
“I felt we needed Cam’s energy and felt that we needed another nine upfront with Brett as weren’t alway cutting through them quite as much, so I thought we could utilise two nines up there.”
Josh McQuoid returned to the team after missing the previous eight matches through injury, coming on for the last 12 minutes in place of Stephane Zubar.
“Josh McQuoid returned to get some minutes,” Mark Molesley continued. “Some people are going to be bitterly disappointed but all I can ask is that they keep training hard and keep working hard and keep trying to improve to do their best to get into the team.
“At the moment they are all showing that appetite, which is great for me as a manager to have that depth and quality of the squad.”
