WEYMOUTH assistant manager Paul Maitland believes the Terras are a “different animal” to the sides that have previously faced Hereford this season as they face the Bulls again tomorrow in the Evo-Stik Southern Premier Division (3pm).
The Terras have faced Hereford twice so far this season, with a 2-0 league loss at home to them in September and a 4-1 loss away in the first qualifying round of the FA Trophy.
Maitland said: “We are a different animal from those games and I think Hereford will know that. I do not think they will be taking us lightly.
“We have taken plenty from them (the two defeats) and they have shown us a few things. They have a way of winning which you have to acknowledge.”
The Terras sit top of the league form table having won their last five matches and lie third in the table, while leaders Hereford have also won their last five and have 77 points.
Maitland said: “We have lost two games since November so we are proving hard to beat. It is a game where we will just go and do the very best we can and hope it is good enough to get something out of the game.”
Maitland is looking forward to the match, saying: “It is great to be involved in these sorts of games. They are the games players, fans and everybody involved in the club want to be involved in.
“It shows that to this point we have had a good season so it is to be embraced.”
Harry Baker is a doubt for Weymouth but will be assessed at a later point, having sustained a head injury which saw him needing to be stretchered off and taken to hospital following the 3-0 win against Royston Town.
Charlie Davis should be available for Weymouth having recovered from illness and Mark Cooper should be in contention for the match, should he play it will be his first appearance in the league since December.
