UNFAZED: Brendon King

THE Terras will bid to become the first team to defeat Leamington in league action this season when the two sides collide at the Bob Lucas Stadium tomorrow (3pm).

The high-flying Brakes currently sit second, just three points off the top with four games in hand, but that does not faze Brendon King, who is adamant his men have what it takes to upset the form book.

The Weymouth boss told Echosport: “They are unbeaten and going for the title. They have also conceded just nine goals so far this season and will be big, strong and well organised but these games are what it is all about.

“We know it is going to be tough but we also know that if we are on top of our game we are more than a match for anyone because we have already proved it.

“We more than lived with Cambridge City last weekend and deserved something from the game, and we did the same against Stourbridge before we were reduced to nine men.

“We have also been to St Albans City and won, and we only lost 1-0 against current leaders Hemel Hempstead Town when we were probably the better side.

“There is no reason for us to fear anyone in this league and if we can get the best out of the players tomorrow we will stand every chance – we are looking forward to it.”

The Terras, four points above the bottom two, welcome back Sam Poole and Ed Palmer from suspension but Kyle Critchell still has two games to serve.

King added: “With three defenders out last weekend we set up different and in many ways it worked, particularly in the first half. However, just because it works in one game, it doesn’t mean it is going to work the next so there may well be a few changes.

“Sam and Ed are both back tomorrow and the fact we have a few selection headaches now makes a nice change.

“Due to the wet weather this week our preparation has not been ideal. We couldn’t get on the pitch on Tuesday night, which was a shame, but it is no excuse – everyone knows what is expected of them.”

Terras (from): Evans, Povall, Palmer, Poole, McConnell, Wells, Clarke, Walker, Clay, Reed, Duff, Smith, Joyce, Ford, Groves.

* The Terras’ away game against Kettering will now take place at Corby Town on December 23.
