“RESULTS are just around the corner”, insists Weymouth manager Brian Stock ahead of the Terras’ home clash with Wealdstone tomorrow (3pm).

Stock’s men are winless in nine games – seven in the Vanarama National League and two in the FA Cup – following the extraordinary two ties with rivals Yeovil.

No Weymouth team has gone on a longer winless run since the 11 games managed in the 2008/09 season under boss Alan Lewer.

Weymouth have also failed to keep a clean sheet in 21 matches but a victory could lift the Terras above Wealdstone, comfortably into mid-table.

Asked if the fixture was a must-win given the poor form, Stock told Echosport: “When you look at it on that side of things, yeah.

“Sometimes these performances, where you win by hook or by crook, reminds me of the win at home against King’s Lynn last year.

“A really important game where although we didn’t play well we got the three points over the line.

“Although we’ve had a good start, the recent run of games and results haven’t necessarily been kind to us.

“I would be worried if our performances were matching those results but it’s given me so many positives in every single performance that I’m sure results are just around the corner.

“We need to start turning performances into results. Sometimes keeping that belief is tough but I’ve got full confidence in the group of players.”

He added: “We need to start games better, in particular the last two. Prior to that, that wasn’t an issue.

“If we can try and find a balance between the two, we’ll be OK.”

Ollie Harfield (shin) should be OK after playing through the pain barrier against Yeovil, while Ahkeem Rose is in contention after a tactical decision to omit him from Tuesday’s FA Cup replay squad.

Explaining Rose’s situation, Stock said: “It was a tactical decision and a tough decision – one I ummed and ahhed about it for quite some time.

“Ahkeem’s struggled with fitness. When I looked at the options on the bench, I wanted to cover myself in most of the areas.

“When Brandon (Goodship) came off with a back problem (on Saturday), I was surprised he was fit to come on the bench in the replay.

“When I looked at the options I had on the bench in terms of fitness, it was just unfortunate Ahkeem missed out on this occasion.”
