WEYMOUTH will not take their “foot off the gas” despite the Terras having no fixture this weekend.

That is the message of boss Brian Stock, who reiterated the importance of contact time with his players amid a part-time setup.

Stock’s men earned an impressive 2-1 win at Stockport County on Saturday to record their second Vanarama National League victory of the campaign.

And, with elite sport set to continue during the national lockdown, Weymouth will be working hard ahead of hosting Wrexham on front of the BT Sport cameras on Saturday, November 14.

Speaking to Echosport after sinking County, Stock said: “It’s important you make the most of these occasions.

“The team morale on Thursday, Friday and Saturday has been excellent. It’s been a staff and player effort.

“We’ll go into (today) and Thursday and things won’t change, we can’t take our foot off the gas. We’re part-time, so contact time is a premium for us.

“It’s an opportunity now to build on what we’ve already done and get the lads and all the ones that are not playing up to peak fitness so we’re good to go come the following week.”

Josh Wakefield joined Cody Cooke (hamstring) and Brennan Camp (head) in coming off injured at Edgeley Park, but Stock revealed his issue was minor.

“It was just cramp,” he said. “He worked his socks off and did a terrific job.

“One of their talismans is (John) Rooney and he did a fantastic job in marking him and negating one of their better players.”
