WEYMOUTH boss Mark Molesley believes the Terras’ record of one loss in 12 Vanarama National League South games is “quite a feat”.

Molesley’s men secured a solid 0-0 draw at Bath City on Saturday, strengthening their position in the standings to third.

As things stand, Weymouth would be on course for a home play-off tie, although they face stiff competition from Slough and Bath who are locked with the Terras on 60 points from 34 games.

In all competitions, Weymouth’s excellent run extends to one loss in 14 games – the sole defeat coming courtesy of a 3-2 loss at Havant & Waterlooville in early February.

Speaking to Echosport regarding the eye-catching sequence of form, Molesley was impressed but stressed his desire to elongate his side’s record.

He said: “To do that in this league is quite a feat.

“It’s a good record, but one we want to continue to improve.”

Just as impressive is Weymouth’s defensive copybook, with the Terras possessing the second-meanest defence in the league with 35 – only leaders Wealdstone, with 34, have shipped less.

With the Bath stalemate securing Weymouth’s seventh clean sheet in the league this season, Molesley said: “You have to work hard and fight for everything in this league.

“We certainly did that (at Bath). It was great to have Brennan Camp back in the team.

“It shows that we’re slowly getting everyone back from injury now and hopefully we’ll have a strong end to the season.”
