WEYMOUTH boss Brian Stock believes the Terras rediscovered their identity during the 1-0 loss at Grimsby Town.

Weymouth battled hard against a side relegated from League Two last season and more than held their own for 74 minutes until John McAtee’s strike sealed their fate.

However, the performance was a vast upgrade on the disappointing 2-0 defeat by Boreham Wood last Saturday.

Stock told Echosport: “You’re looking at it thinking: ‘There’s three points up for grabs’.

“My message was to remain concentrated and lock the back door. Unfortunately, we didn’t do that.

“When you look at the performance and the amount of positives compared to last week, I feel that we didn’t have an identity last week and were far too direct.

“But there were some good performances out there (at Grimsby).

“Obviously, we came up short but if I was to focus on the performance there was a definite identity to us and a good understanding right the way through the team.”

He added: “First half was very even, they had one or two chances but we had a hold on the game, which is what we wanted.

“Second half we dominated for large parts, there was a 20-minute spell where we had sustained pressure and probably should’ve scored one or two goals.

“Then we got punished with direct play from them. So a lapse in concentration has cost us at least a point.”
