WEYMOUTH manager Mark Molesley believes the Terras arrive at their Vanarama National League South battle with Billericay Town tonight (7.45pm) “in a good place”.

Molesley, whose side slipped to fourth after a weekend disrupted by the postponement to their clash with Hemel Hempstead, dismissed any notion of a 10-day gap affecting his squad.

Weymouth had to contend with an identical timeframe between games before beating Hampton & Richmond 2-1 in their last outing.

Molesley told Echosport: “We didn’t want to have a gap but we’ll try not to look at the negatives, we’ll look at the positives.

“We’ve had another training session and a chance to get players fitter, others have had a chance to catch up.

“We arrive at Billericay with no excuses and in a good place. It’s up to us now, we’re looking forward to the game.

“We didn’t want a break in momentum but it’s only been 10 days since our last game, it’s not like we’ve gone two weeks.”

The original fixture was postponed due to vandalism of the Blues’ pitch, but Molesley held no concerns over the Essex side’s turf.

“They’d originally done a great job with the pitch,” the former Bournemouth midfielder said. “It’s a good surface anyway but they’ve worked hard on it since.

“Hopefully it will be in good enough nick to get the game played.”

Weymouth have no injury concerns other than the trio of Sam Sherring, Andy Robinson and Callum Buckley (all ankle).

Weymouth’s fixture at Hemel Hempstead has been re-arranged for Tuesday, December 10 (7.45pm).
