Weymouth travel to North London to take on Barnet at the Hive on Tuesday evening.

The game follows from the Terras 1-0 loss at home to Sutton United last Saturday.

Weymouth are yet to find the net since their return to the National League, but are hoping to break that duck with the new signing of striker Shamir Mullings.

Mullings joins on non-contract terms and when speaking to the press on Saturday, Brian Stock said his former Havant and Waterlooville teammate will be available for the game. The six-foot five-inch striker has a wealth of experience in the fifth tier of English football, having played for Aldershot town as well as Forest Green Rovers.

Barnet are also looking to bounce back from their result at the weekend. The Bees lost 4-2 away to Notts County. The London based side currently sit fifteenth in the league, with six points from their first three results.

The Terras will have to be vigilant of Alexander McBurnie. The Scottish striker is the younger brother of current Sheffield United star Ollie.

Barnet boast an international amongst their ranks in Alexander McQueen. The Grenadan midfielder has recently signed for the Bees following a spell with Dagenham and Redbridge.

Another recent addition to their squad is former Queens Park Rangers and Montreal Impact star, Michael Petrasso. The Canadian midfielder has also represented his country, and plays on the wing.

The last time the sides faced each other in the league was way back on the 30th December 1988. The Terras were well beaten 4-1 in a tough away fixture that day.

This time Weymouth will hope for a different outcome, and need the goals to kick start their season. One positive stat in favour of the Terras is that they have scored in the last nine outings against the Bees.

Thoughts from the manager

Speaking ahead of the game, Brian Stock said that his team are already doing their research into the opposition, and when questioned on the teams play- Stock said: “The character of the side is very good and the morale is still good.” He insisted his side must “concentrate on the positives” of the previous games.
