WEYMOUTH manager Mark Molesley admitted the Terras’ 3-0 MANarama National League South win over Concord Rangers bodes well as his side were not at their “vintage best”.

A thunderous first-half strike from Ben Thomson was added to by Yemi Odubade and sub Cameron Murray in the second half, putting the result beyond doubt.

Weymouth’s third clean sheet in four league games also means the Terras boast the most miserly defensive record in the division with 12 goals conceded.

Speaking to Echosport following a fourth straight victory in all competitions, Molesley felt “moments of quality” had separated Weymouth from Concord.

He said: “Lots of positives to take. Sometimes it’s a good sign if you’re not at your vintage best and still win 3-0.

“Concord definitely made it difficult for us, frustrated us and made it a difficult afternoon’s work. We defended well, we didn’t give up too many chances on our goal and we had moments of quality when we needed them to get the three points.

“Like anything in this league, it’s always going to be tough and you’re never going to get your own way. We had to wrestle and fight.

“I felt we did that but don’t get me wrong, by our usual standards we were a little bit sloppy at times, didn’t move the ball quick enough and made it difficult for ourselves.

“Concord contributed to that and didn’t make it an easy afternoon. All in all, when you reflect, I think 3-0 at home with a clean sheet you can forgive the lads a little bit if they still get the job done.”
