DPL PREVIEWS: Terras look for seventh heaven
6:20am Friday 18th October 2013 in Football
WEYMOUTH Reserves will look to extend their unbeaten run to seven games at Magna Road tomorrow (3pm).
Perennial heavyweights Hamw-orthy Recreation have lost their last four but are always a tough nut to crack, particularly on their own patch.
However, with three wins from three and four successive clean sheets, Weymouth hold a five-point lead over their opponents and are just one off leaders Portland United.
Terras boss Jake Richmond said: “Going to Hamworthy Rec is always a real tough one.
“I know they have lost a few recently but they are still a good side and we will have to perform well to beat them.
“I have no doubts that they will still finish in the top three or four at the end of the season so it’s a real test for us.
“However, if we keep working hard and doing what we have been doing recently we will stand every chance.”
Portland return to Grove Corner after three weeks away and should keep their lead at the top with a win over Swanage Town & Herston (3pm).
Gary Bailey’s men hit five past Hamworthy Recreation last weekend and take on a team that has won just twice this season.
“It will be nice to play at home again after several weeks away,” said Bailey. “The lads are full of confidence but we know we can’t get carried away.
“It’s good to beat the teams around you at the top but you have to stay grounded and back that up against sides lower down.
“I’m not taking anything away from Swanage, they will pose their own threat, but the three points last Saturday won’t mean anything if we don’t follow it up this weekend.
“It’s easy to motivate your team when you’re playing top sides and you’ve got to do the same against the others.”
Bridport Reserves face a difficult assignment on the road at Mere Town (3pm).
The Bees hit nine against Parley Sports last weekend but boss Robin Townsend is expecting a completely different contest tomorrow.
He said: “Mere are a new team to the league and judging by the start they have had it’s going to be far from easy.
“Last weekend we showed exactly what we are capable of but as ever it is about consistency.
“If we play like we know we can, we know we can give anyone a game at this level.”
