WEYMOUTH’S Covid-19 outbreak has eased and the Terras are “fully focused” on their journey to Eastleigh tomorrow (3pm), according to manager Brian Stock.

While the number of players in training has increased, Weymouth are still nursing a small portion of their squad back to full health.

Games in the festive Vanarama National League schedule against Eastleigh and Yeovil were postponed due to the positive cases within Weymouth’s squad.

It means Weymouth will have gone two weeks since playing, their last match being the 1-0 win over Hungerford in the FA Trophy.

But Stock highlighted how precise Weymouth’s preparation has been in the lead up to the Eastleigh game.

He told Echosport: “We had positive cases – it wasn’t like we came into contact with anyone.

“One of the concerns was accommodation we put on for players, which affected four members of the group, which wasn’t ideal. We had some individual cases as well.”

Asked if the Terras now have their work cut out getting the recovered players quickly back to match fitness, Stock replied: “Yes is the answer. We’re monitoring that on a daily basis.

“It’s one of the things we have to be careful about with potentially bringing them back too soon.

“We’re fully prepared and expecting to play. We’re fully focused and whoever will play we’ve had enough time on the training pitch to put into place a game plan.”

Weymouth’s lack of matches has afforded Stock plenty of time to research Eastleigh’s style of play.

He said: “I went and watched them against Torquay, we’ve had them watched previously as well.

“We’ve watched them live, so has Sean (O’Driscoll, coach) and so has our analyst (Zach Thornton).

“We’ve had plenty of eyes on them, so it’s up to us to relay that information.

“They dug out a result against Torquay and it was a game of two halves against Solihull, which shows they’ve got a lot of character amongst their ranks.

“We’re fully expecting a tough game. They’ve got some good individual players having played a lot higher.”

Stock also paid credit to Weymouth’s new head of medical, Victoria McIntyre, for her role in helping squad members back to full health.

Stock said: “We have to take care of these players that have contracted the virus.

“I’d like to give a special mention to Victoria, who’s really taken on board how we look after the players, so the protocols are in place.

“It gives them the best opportunity to come back and not suffer any adverse effects from the virus.

“We still have a few players in that bracket where they’re trying their best to get back for Eastleigh but it might be too soon for some.”

Omar Mussa, Brandon Goodship and Brad Ash are all available after ankle knocks, as is goalkeeper Gerard Benfield after his loan recall from Dorchester.

Stock said: “They’ve all come through training and trained the last couple of days.

“Ben Thomson’s not ready yet and obviously Harrison Bruton’s broken his finger. In terms of injuries, that’s everything.”
