King: Do the business over 90 minutes

Dorset Echo: HAT-TRICK: Mark Ford strikes to seal his treble on Saturday HAT-TRICK: Mark Ford strikes to seal his treble on Saturday

BRENDON King wants his side to start doing the business for the full 90 minutes rather than in fits and starts.

Weymouth made it back-to-back victories in the Evo-Stik Southern Premier Division with a 3-2 home win over Hitchin Town on Saturday, but it was far from straightforward as they conceded twice in the opening 16 minutes before going on to dominate in the second half.

King told Echosport: “I was fuming at the start. To concede two goals like we did, including one in the opening two minutes, after all what we’ve spoke about and worked on was extremely difficult to take.

“You just cannot afford to defend like that but we then went on to create loads of chances and the fact we came in at half-time 2-1 down was just mind boggling.

“We then had a few choice words with the lads at the break and in the second half we came out and totally dominated.

“In fact, we had so many opportunities over the course of the game that on another day we might have scored seven or eight.

“We just need to learn to do the business for the full 90 minutes.”

When asked what made the difference in the second half, King added: “The two centre-halves started coming through and winning their headers and we started to put the ball into good areas.

“We also began to compete a lot better all over the pitch and that is why we went on to create chance after chance.

“There is no doubting the quality we have but in order for us to capitalise on that we need to learn to do the dirty stuff for the entire game.

“This is the Southern League at the end of the day and first and foremost you have to be willing to dig in and scrap before anything else.

“If we can start to maintain that same approach we showed in the second half then I have no doubts someone will soon be on the end of a spanking.”

Mark Ford was the star of the show for the Terras with a fine hat-trick.
Commenting on the striker’s display, King said: “Mark was superb. He exploited the lack of pace they had at the back and really benefited from the way we put the ball in good areas for him.

“We have worked really hard on Mark’s all-round game and when he plays like that he is a real threat.

“There are still things he needs to learn but he thoroughly deserved his hat-trick.”

The victory has taken the Terras up to 11th in the table, just six points off the play-offs.

* One-time fans’ favourite Warren Byerley was in attendance at Saturday’s game. The former Terra recently left Kettering Town and is currently a free agent.

When quizzed about the striker’s surprise appearance at the match, King said: “He just came down to say hello to everyone. I had a chat with him in the bar afterwards and that is all there was to it.”

Current player, firstly I suggest you go back to school before you criticise those who have a brain. Your grammar and use of the English language prove how illiterate and un educated you are. You must be easy pleased if you are happy for a poor side to be struggling in a Mickey Mouse league. Two wins and the problems are solved? Idiots. As I've said on numerous occasions, I rarely attend games now as I feel cheated to spend my hard earned money with an unprofessional set up. Instead I run a very successful business and what dead end brain dead job, if any, do you do? The difference is I have invested literally thousands of pounds in recent years sponsoring the club, how much have you invested as you think they are so wonderful? As for snowy1 you have probably never played the game and if you have you can only dream of playing at the level I've played in the past. I would certainly never have lowered my standards to play with the muppets currently at WFC.

When i finish my dead end job, i have to travel thirty plus miles to watch my team.
I am fed up of reading constant negative views by people who sound bitter and twisted, or just a drunk.
Your constant negative advertising is costing WFC, of new fans and revenue.
If you cannot support your team then shut up. The important thing is you stop being a kn-b.

I once saw a hedge.

That statement is every bit as relevant as any of the 'points' made by njs.

You make comment that the club has an 'unprofessional' set up.

When in the years before the current regime did the club have a set that was running the club professionally?

If you have invested literally thousands in recent years sponsoring the club, why?

It would of been years, probably a decade or more since the club was being run professionally.
