Attention turns back to The Bob Lucas Stadium as Saturday sees the Terras take on an in form Chesham side. After losing 1-0 to Beaconsfield last week the lead at the top of the table for Weymouth has been cut from 7 to 5 with just 3 games left in this incredible season in the Southern league Premier South as Taunton picked up a very important 2-1 win against Kings Langley and Met Police lost 1-0 to Swindon Supermarine which means they are still 7 points behind.

For the visitors they come into this game in high spirits after thrashing already relegated Staines 7-0. After a poor start to the season which saw the Generals pick up just 1 point in their first 8 games, Chesham certainly turned around their form to wave away any fears of a relegation battle. This has certainly helped by the fact they have only lost 2 games in 2019, both of which were at home.

The reverse fixture for the two teams was in this early part of the season where Weymouth picked up an impressive 0-5 victory on Saturday 25th August. The goals came from Brandon Goodship, picking up his second hat trick of the season just 5 games in, Thomson and Zubar.
Chesham currently sit 12th in the table with 56 points from 39 games. Their overall record stands at; Won 15, Drawn 11 and Lost 13. Their away record stands at; Played 19, Won 8, Drawn 5 and lost 6. The last away defeat for Chesham came on December 22nd in a 2-1 defeat against Merthyr.

The danger man for Chesham is a familiar face to the Weymouth faithful, Jefferson Louis who played for Weymouth in 2007-08 making 21 appearances and scoring 7 goals. He also made 1 appearance in 2011 in an unsuccessful spell that saw him play for 6 teams in that one calendar year. Louis has made 22 appearances for Chesham this season scoring 6 goals. Meanwhile after not being able to convert the penalty chance against Beaconsfield Brandon Goodship will be looking to make amends and add to his 36 league goals this season and his 82 goals in all competitions for Weymouth.
