King: Decision on Duff was pivotal

Dorset Echo: GOAL DISALLOWED: Craig Duff GOAL DISALLOWED: Craig Duff

CRAIG Duff’s disallowed goal was a pivotal moment in last night’s 2-0 defeat at Frome Town, according to Weymouth boss Brendon King.

The midfielder’s header on 28 minutes would have put the Terras ahead but the referee ruled it out for a push on a defender.

However, King is adamant it was a perfectly good goal and reckons had it stood the game would have turned out very differently.

He told Echosport: “It was no different to any other header in any other game and it was just so frustrating.

“We were well on top at that point and deserved a goal but things just don’t seem to be going for us at the moment.

“Unfortunately, goals change games and had that been given I am confident things would have been very different.”

King went on to add: “We played some neat football at times but once again we didn’t test their keeper enough.

“Now we need to show some character and ensure we don’t dwell on this for too long with another tough trip at the weekend.”

Weymouth have picked up just seven points from their opening eight games in the Evo-Stik Southern Premier Division where they currently lie just four places above second-bottom on goal difference.

A very disappointing season so far. Yet again Brendon is ready with the excuses.
Come on Nigel - time for him to be replaced by someone more competent.

as an exile i have been unable to watch the Terras this season , however after supporting the club all my life i am again getting concerned. The reports sound positive but results are the same.
When we drew with kettering i felt hopeful but Kettering are bottom of league
As the best supported side in the league i feel a decision has to be made ido not want to see the club back in the bad days again but if you want to keep 600 plus and increase this number things need to improve or fans will drift away leaving less income I look at Halifax, Boston, and Chester to name a few who have been through hard times but are now on the way up
With money tight fans are not going to kekeep paying for little enjoyment and poor results ma.

Totally agree with the comments so far. Time for a change of manager and coaching staff. Kinger was never the right appointment in the first place but to reward him for struggling in a very poor league last season with a new contract was suicidal. Yet another season of excuses and looking over our shoulder. If this truly is a club of the town then listen to the views of the dwindling supporters before its too late.

Surprise surprise, Kingers quick to blame officials. Sorry but we're all sick and tired of reading the same excuses - "it was a perfectly good goal", "their goal was offside" etc etc. When you find yourself coming out with those excuses after every game you know somethings wrong.
With regards to the team, its all well and good playing nice football and having most of the play but we always try one pass too many and the opposition are able to break up play and hit us on the counter. Something needs to change fast!

The buck has to stop with the manager and as I've already indicated, he just isn't up to the job. Where are his contacts in the game? Where are the skills and qualifications of the coaching staff? In the pub I suggest. There is never a plan B when plan A doesn't or isn't working. Look at the gap between us and the top already. Another season almost over before its hardly begun. I dread to think where we'll be if Biddie leaves it until Christmas before making the decision that's obvious to most of us now. This club, its supporters and the town deserve better. We don't want the same excuses week after week. Change it now before it's too late.
