PREVIEW: Dulwich Hamlet v Weymouth – Tuesday 20th December 2022 – 19:45
It’s the Terras’ final league match before Christmas, as Bobby Wilkinson’s side travel to Champion Hill looking for an early present in more points to help carry on this positive momentum.
The gaffer spoke to us ahead of tonight’s clash with Dulwich Hamlet:
On preparations: “We’ve worked really hard behind the scenes. We want to carry on this momentum, we go there seeking another three points – no different to usual. If we can play well, give 110%, we’ll be really pleased.”
On whether the week’s break has helped: “No, we’ve not looked at it that way, we’ve not had any sort of break. Boys have been in training and have been working extremely hard as usual.”
On what to expect from Dulwich: “We’ve gone and seen them, they are in good form, they haven’t played for a while so they will be fresh. Expecting a big crowd which will help them, but the way I see it, it’s 11v11 on a football pitch. We need to be able to perform and show the kind of displays we’ve seen for the last few weeks. So we’ve prepped well, let’s see how we get on. Win, lose or draw, we’re still very much on track for where we want to be.”
On further team news to yesterday’s injury report (see below): “We’ll be with the same squad as last week. Luke Nippard is not 100%, but is back with us and will make the bench. I’m very happy he’s back as we’ve got some quality into our team again.”
– Full-back Teddy Howe does not require surgery on his knee injury and could be fit in 10 weeks time.
– Full back Harry Kyprianou has returned to training and is one week from fitness after suffering a hamstring issue.
– Striker Ben Thomson out for another three weeks with an ankle injury.
