Match Preview

Weymouth take on Dulwich Hamlet at the Bob Lucas Stadium as The Terras look to keep the momentum going in the Vanarama National League South.

If this clash between these two teams is half as good as the one up at Champion Hill earlier in the season, then we are in for a great game. That game finished in a 2-2 draw and it was a real credit to the National League South and if one game could highlight the quality of this division then that game wouldn’t be far off being picked.

Both teams come into this game after picking up much-needed wins for different reasons last weekend. Weymouth secured a hard-fought 3-1 away win at Welling, whilst Dulwich thrashed struggling Braintree Town 6-0 at home. Weymouth’s win kept them firmly inside the play-off places, whilst Dulwich pulled away from danger with a resounding win. They sit in 15th place coming into this game. Weymouth sit 6th and can climb as high as 3rd with a win. 

Thoughts from the Manager

“We’ve worked hard to get ourselves into a good position – a position people weren’t expecting us to be in. It gets tougher the longer you’re up there, so we’re looking to string results together. Performance levels are good and have only been below par in the St Albans game.”
