THREE points away from home, as well as his side’s resilience to dig in and restrict Cambridge City on their own patch, thrilled Terras’ player-manager Jason Matthews.

Apart from a couple of second half chances, Weymouth managed to limit their hosts, who had netted six times in their previous encounter, to efforts that were comfortable for Matthews in the Terras’ goal.

These came after Stewart Yetton had put the visitors in front on eight minutes.

“It was very pleasing that we managed to dig in and get a great result,” Matthews told Echosport. “Teams will struggle to go there and get a result out of Cambridge City.”

“Our resilience stood out and we limited them to very few chances and overall we out-battled them on their own patch.

“It was very much a team performance after Yetts put us in front like he does. Yetts does what he does best, when it falls to him on the edge of the six-yard box he very rarely misses.”

While the Terras’ captain netted the winner at one end, Matthews was also full of praise for former skipper Sam Poole, who slotted into the back four to replace the injured Ed Palmer and barely put a foot wrong throughout.

Matthews added: “The team is picking itself at the moment and for the substitutes it must be tough but they need to take their chances.

“Sam took his chance, he came in and did very well. That is the Sam I know and rate highly.”

When asked if the result sent a message to the rest of the teams in the league, Matthews said: “We will try and concentrate on our own business, I am not worried about anyone else.”
