WEYMOUTH boss Brian Stock expressed his desire to see results change quickly ahead of hosting King’s Lynn Town tomorrow (3pm).

After taking one point in four Vanarama National League games, without a goal, Weymouth are second bottom in the table.

In King’s Lynn, the Terras face a side who have matched their achievement of back-to-back promotions.

There is also history between the teams, with the Linnets knocking Weymouth out of the Southern Premier South play-offs in the 2017/18 season via a 3-0 home win.

Last time out, Stock’s men enjoyed the better chances in a 1-0 loss to Barnet but the former Wales international believes the Terras’ squad has improved greatly in four games.

Speaking to uptheterras.co.uk, he said: “When we look at the stats from the (Barnet) game and you look at the fact we registered 10 shots at goal, that’s an improvement.

“The improvement in the intensity, the way we’ve been brave on the ball – the performance has been there and we need to carry that on.

“No doubt the lads are disappointed. It’s up to us to raise the morale, prepare right.

“We go into (King’s Lynn) I’d love to say full of confidence after a good performance, but the results need to change quickly.”

Stock was impressed with debutant striker Shamir Mullings at Barnet.

He said: “I almost went again principles in terms of trying to play. We had to chase the game with two strikers up top.

“(Mullings) is a little more direct, he gives us that height, that physicality. His fitness isn’t 100 per cent but he put in a great performance.”

Cameron Murray is a slight doubt with a knee issue sustained at Altrincham, while there are no signings expected prior to the game.
