Molesley pleased by Weymouth’s quality

WEYMOUTH manager Mark Molesley feels the quality displayed by his side in the 3-1 win over King’s Lynn was “lovely to see” as the Terras prepare to face Farnborough away tonight (7.45pm).

Molesley’s men visit a Farnborough side including veteran 42-year-old striker Jamie Cureton in the Evo-Stik Southern League Premier having upset the high-flying Linnets on Saturday with a Brandon Goodship brace and a delightful Charlie Davis volley.

As a result of the victory, the Terras’ boss told Echosport his troops go to Boro “full of confidence”.

He said: “There was certainly some bits we want to improve on but there were some bits I was very pleased with.

“In games with tough challenges it’s fine lines in the game and we showed that we had the quality.

“Brandon popped up with two goals in a tense, tight game and put us ahead.

“And then Charlie Davis made the afternoon a little bit more comfortable by sealing it with a fantastic strike and a great piece of technique.

“To bring it down and show that at that stage of the game is lovely to see.

“Now our attention turns to tonight and the next game is always the biggest game and we’ll go there full of confidence.”

Molesley also said that teenage goalkeeper Mark Travers will benefit from his stint with the Republic of Ireland under-19s last week.

“He’s a young lad and he’s learning his trade. He’s got all the attributes and it’s about him going out and applying that now.

“He’s getting experience here, he’s getting experience with Ireland and he’s lucky that he’s in and around Bournemouth with the best coaches around there.

“Most notably Gaz Stewart is the one teaching him, so you can tell that he’s in safe hands,” he said.

Meanwhile, Weymouth continue to assess Toby Down’s fitness after he sustained an injury against Basingstoke as the Terras take on a Farnborough side placed in 16th.
