WEYMOUTH boss Brian Stock feels the Terras “dictated” the opening half of their 3-1 win over Dorchester.

In his second outing as manager, Stock watched on as midfielder Jordan Ngalo put Weymouth ahead before Tom Blair equalised with a curling finish before the break.

Josh McQuoid bagged a penalty after the restart and Jake McCarthy lofted a stunning third goal as Weymouth killed Leigh Robinson’s Magpies off.

 

Despite that second-half brace, Stock warned there was still much work for Weymouth’s squad to do, admitting the Terras took their foot off the gas as the final whistle neared.

“I’m really happy. Obviously having quite a large squad and utilising that throughout the 90 minutes is pleasing,” he told uptheterras.co.uk

“Quite a lot of players have given me something to think about.

“When you look at the first 30 minutes, I think we dictated the game and just took our foot off the gas in the final 15.

“All credit to a side that I’ve inherited three days ago. I’m asking them to do certain rotations or patterns on the pitch.

“Although there’s some work to be done, there’s a group that are used to that sort of thing over the last couple of years and the majority of the squad have stuck together.

“The last 10 minutes was quite disappointing. (Dorchester) are quite a competitive side.

“There were one or two things we changed at half-time, that’s pleasing for me.

“I thought the second-half performance was excellent.”
