Weymouth to add fuel to their fire

MARK Molesley admits he will use anything he can to add fuel to their fire, as the Terras prepare to host Merthyr Town in the Evo-Stik Southern Premier South tomorrow (3pm).

The Terras fell 2-1 away at Merthyr last week, with Ben Thomson scoring a late consolation, and Molesley says that match proved the Martyrs are a good side.

When asked if the previous loss to Merthyr will make it a bit of a revenge mission, Molesley replied: “Anything we can add to fuel our fire for the game we will use but look, we always treat each game in isolation.

“We know they are a good side, they proved that up there.

“So it is one we are looking forward to.

“Hopefully we can react from that game in a big way.”

Molesley does not think there will be any great advantage to the second leg of the Terras’ two matches in quick succession against the Martyrs and insists they will prepare the same.

Molesley said: “I think there are advantages and disadvantages to it but it will even itself out. Look, we prepare for every game the same and this one will take our attention now and is one we are looking forward to.”

Carrying on the theme of Wales against England tomorrow, the Terras have a good record against Welsh teams over the past 40 years.

In that time, Weymouth have played 67 matches against Welsh sides, winning 35 and losing 20.

Against the Martyrs themselves the Terras boast a good record, having lost just twice in the past 20 years and winning 13 times.

Harry Baker is suffering from a bad back and will not make tomorrow, while Tiago Sa faces a further time on the sidelines.

Molesley also gave an update on Josh McQuoid, who is stepping up his rehab each day.

But the former Bournemouth midfielder admitted McQuoid’s return is hopeful at this stage.

He said: “If we see him before the end of the season it is going to be a big bonus.

“Fingers crossed we will see him.”
