WEYMOUTH manager Mark Molesley confirmed the Terras are following government advice on the coronavirus pandemic.

Molesley will oversee his side at the Bob Lucas Stadium against Slough this afternoon (3pm) after the National League gave the green light to this weekend’s fixtures, despite widespread postponements in other leagues.

Speaking to Echosport, Molesley said: “We’re just following normal protocols which the Government are imposing.

“At training we had a chat and we’re going to avoid shaking hands a bit more, keep handwash out and try and avoid touching your face with your hands.

“It’s reinforcing what everyone else is saying. It’s quite a unique situation so we’ll just have to follow the right protocols and respect whatever the authorities want us to do.”

Weymouth sit third, with Slough fourth, level on 60 points.

On facing the Rebels, Molesley said: “Where we are in the league, where we’re next to each other, there’s nothing between us.

“It makes for, on paper, a very entertaining and exciting game.

“That’s the target, to try and finish as high as we can. We always prepare hard. They’ve done fantastically well, Slough getting promoted.

“We’re trying to follow their path. They got promoted in our first year and are a really strong outfit in this league.”

Cameron Murray (shins) is out, but midfielder Jordan Ngalo has returned to training.
