Weymouth boss Matthews calls for a ruthless display against Hitchin Town

DETERMINED Jason Matthews has called for the Terras to be ruthless in front of goal tomorrow, when they welcome high-flying Hitchin Town to the Bob Lucas Stadium (3pm).

Despite being unbeaten in their last five league outings, Weymouth have only won once.

Eager to get his side back to winning ways, the Terras’ player manager is keen to see his side “stand up and be counted” against the third-placed Canaries.

He told Echosport: “They (Hitchin) are obviously the form team in the league but it is up to us to beat them at home.

“The league is very even, a loss will take you down to 10th and a win could take you up to third.

“There’s no pulling any punches, we have drawn a lot of away games and we have to win our home games. Tomorrow is a must-win game.”

Asked what he believes his side need to do to turn level contests into victories, he added: “We just need to pull the trigger around the edge of the area, be a little bit more ruthless in front of goal and start taking our chances.

“It’s no good people labelling us as a good side and playing good football if we don’t win matches. Teams are winning ugly and going above us and it’s time to stand up and be counted.

“The lads play a lot of small-sided games in training and are are pulling the trigger left right and centre, we need to start doing it in games.

“We will be urging them to shoot on sight.”

Hitchin are unbeaten in all competitions since the end of November and have played fewer games than anyone else in the league’s top five.

Canaries’ defender Kane Smith has also been reported to have trialled with West Bromwich Albion this week.
