BOSS Jason Matthews insisted his Weymouth side are still learning after their 2-0 defeat at title favourites St Neots on Saturday.

The Terras were rocked by an Arthur Lee strike inside the first 10 minutes and then hit on the counter by Jay Davies later in the second half to ensure they came away from Cambridgeshire with nothing to show for their efforts.

But the Weymouth player-manager refused to worry about the effect the setback may have on his charges.

He told Echosport: “The lads were disappointed but I gave some pointers and said what I felt afterwards. We are a very close dressing room and the boys will take it on board.

“I have full faith in my team and the atmosphere in the camp is still good, at the end of the day we have lost our first game in 11.

“There are a few things that can come out of it and we are not by any means the finished article, we knew that anyway and you can learn a lot from a defeat.

“They started very well in the first half and stole a march on us with the early goal in the first ten minutes.

“For the first 15 or 20 minutes in the second half we had a lot of the play but they hit us on the counter-attack and put pay to the game.”

Commenting on St Neots, Matthews added: “They are the favourites and they have some very good players so credit to them, they beat us on the day but on the whole I felt we matched them.”
