Weymouth manager Brian Stock was delighted with his side when they put Wealdstone to the sword as a “complete performance” helped secure 4-0 victory at The Bob Lucas Stadium.
A late Sean Shields brace, which followed goals from Josh McQuoid and Brennan Camp, assured that the Terras would pick up all three points, as Weymouth obtained their second consecutive home win.
Stock said: “I thought that was a complete performance from the boys today. They carried out all the instructions, the information, and the dedication was there.
“I loved the intensity in the way that we pressed and how we pressed Wealdstone. They are a very interesting side with the fact that they can flip formations, they have a lot of versatility within the side.
“We had to drill quite a bit of information into the players. There was a lot of what if’s (in terms of their formations), and once we found out (how they’d set-up) after five minutes, I thought we dominated the rest of the game.”
Following the National League North and South season being ruled as “null and void”, it looks unlikely that there will be relegation from the National League; however, that does not mean that Stock wants his squad to take the foot off the gas anytime soon.
The 39-year-old continued: “I want to win every game of football and my mindset hasn’t changed one bit, I go into the game with a lot of pressure on to try and win the game.
“I hope that reflects in how I addressed the team. If you thought anyone was in that mind frame today, then I’d be surprised because I thought everybody worked really, really hard for the full 90 minutes.
“There’s been a few occasions this year that we’ve not carried that out throughout the whole game. Sometimes when we go out second half, we don’t necessarily make the complete performance in the second half.”
Stock was pleased for on-loan local lad Brennan Camp who scored his first Terras goal just before the hour mark, on his 44th appearance for the club.
He added: “I’m pleased for Brennan, he’s a great lad and it’s a calm finish from him. He’s hit the target and that’s all you can ask.”
