Weymouth crystal clear on expectations for Staines tussle

MARK Molesley says his players need no added motivation ahead of their clash at home against relegated Staines Town in the Evo-Stik Southern Premier South tomorrow (3pm).

The Terras sit five points clear at the top of the table after their impressive 4-0 demolition of title rivals Met Police.

Staines have four wins all season and had their relegation confirmed in early March. The Swans have one win in their last 23 games, all other 22 games being losses.

Molesley said: “The boys need no added motivation. They know what it means, first and foremost to them – they have put in a lot of hard work this season.

“The demands that we place upon them are high. They have come with us and they have never moaned, they have got on with it and they have always trained hard.

“Win, lose or draw we have always stuck together, we have always had the same mantra to continue to try and improve and work hard.

“That is what we are doing and we just hope that it stands us in good stead.”

An added bonus for the Terras is that title rivals Taunton host the Met, meaning that a win against Staines could stretch their lead at the top.

Should Weymouth beat Staines, they can end the weekend seven points clear at the top if Met Police beat Taunton or hold them to a draw, but if the Peacocks win the Terras will stay five points clear.

However, Molesley says there is no difference for his side despite the scenarios in play.

Molesley said: “We can only look after ourselves.

“I know everyone is looking around at these ifs buts and maybes and that is their prerogative. My job is just to keep these lads focused and now I have got to prepare them for the next biggest game of the season which is always the next game and that is no different to (tomorrow).

“So we have got to make sure the boys are fit and fighting and ready for action.”

Molesley also offered an injury update, with Josh McQuoid set to step up his rehabilitation.

Molesley said: “Staines could possibly be a little bit too early, Josh is going to step up his rehab this week.

“Tiago Sa has been in doing some work (on the day of the 4-0 win against Met Police) and so has Callum Buckley so we are hoping they are nearing a return.

“It is just about getting that balance right of getting them in and giving them the best chance to stay back.”
