Injury-hit Weymouth to trust in squad depth

TERRAS boss Mark Molesley says his side has enough strength in depth to test Havant and Waterlooville tonight (7.45pm) despite a number of injuries to key players.

Jack Hoey has an ankle injury, Brennan Camp has aggravated a knee ligament, Ben Thomson is struggling with a sore calf, Cameron Murray is due to see a specialist regarding his setback and Andy Robinson is still recovering from surgery.

On top of this, new loan signing Jaidon Anthony is recovering from a knock, with Molesley adding that Terras fans shouldn’t expect to see their new addition in tonight’s fixture or in Saturday’s clash with Eastbourne Borough (3pm).

However, despite the growing number of players on the treatment table, Molesley is confident that Weymouth’s strength in depth will allow the in-form side to continue their good run of form.

“We have more than enough quality in the squad,” he said. “We have proved that this season whenever we have had injuries.

“All the other las are fit and ready to play. We haven’t been the most fortunate with injuries but one person’s disappointment is another’s opportunity.”

The Terras travel to Havant tonight on the back of a six-game unbeaten run. The last side to beat Molesley’s men was Havant and he is expecting another tough game: “This game needs no introduction with the positions in the league and Havant need no introduction with the quality they have.

“It’s a top of the table clash against a quality side.”
