TERRAS: Scott looks for a league tonic

Dorset Echo: SKIPPER: Scott Walker SKIPPER: Scott Walker

SCOTT Walker says it is time for the Terras to put their Stourbridge nightmare to bed – exactly where he was during the West Midlands horror show.

While the Weymouth captain was laid up by illness last Saturday, his team-mates were suffering a 7-0 thrashing at the hands of the Glassboys.

However, Walker was back in the side for Tuesday night’s defeat of Bridport and he is eager for everyone at the club to look forward now rather than back.

“We’ve got to put last Saturday’s result behind us now,” he said. “Everyone involved was not only embarrassed but hurt by what happened because no-one wants to be on the end of a drubbing like that.

“No-one wants to go to work on a Monday morning and tell their colleagues they lost 7-0 at the weekend – you shouldn’t be playing football if a result like that doesn’t hurt you.

“We all know we’ve got a responsibility to put that right and we need to stick together as a team, as a squad and as a club and move forward.

“I don’t think anyone expected that result at Stourbridge and hopefully it will not happen again for a very long time.

“We had played some good stuff over the couple of games before but Stourbridge seem to be our bogey team.”

St Albans City are the visitors to the Bob Lucas Stadium this Saturday and Walker insists the players must be in the right frame of mind going into it.

“First and foremost, we have to make sure we are in the right place mentally and go into the game with a positive attitude,” he added.

“We need to concentrate on St Albans now and they will be a very difficult team to beat, like most teams in this league are.

“Knowing our result last Saturday, they will be confident so we’ve got to make sure we are firing on all cylinders and be ready for them when they come.

“Everyone was disappointed with the result last Saturday but the fortunate thing was that we had the game on Tuesday to try and get it out of our system.

“We will train hard tonight and then look forward to Saturday’s game when we can hopefully pick up the three points.”
