WEYMOUTH will have to improve defensively if they are to get the better of Grays Athletic at the Wessex Stadium tomorrow according to Terras' boss Garry Hill.

Not only has the Dorset outfit struggled at the back in recent weeks but also the Blues possess one of the best scoring records in English football's top five flights. In their last 62 league encounters Grays have hit the net 127 times at a rate of 2.048 goals per game.

Hill said: "Grays get goals for fun. You only have to look at how many they have scored so far this season and the season before to see that. It is frightening it really is and Saturday is going be a big test but the boys are looking forward to it and we shall just have to see how we go."

The Terras, who lost 4-0 at Woking last week, have only claimed one point from their last four Nationwide Conference National games but they remain fifth. Hill is hoping his men can now put their winless run in November behind them.

He said: "We have had a chat about a few things, I have analysed things as a manager, and I am aware of the areas where things have gone a bit pear-shaped in recent times. But panic - no, crisis - no, it's the top five we are in not the bottom five and overall the boys are still in very good spirits.

"I am not the sort of man who makes excuses and you see what you get with me. Last Saturday we hit the woodwork twice, had a couple kicked off the line and their keeper made a couple of good saves but from a defensive point of view, as a unit, we did not take responsibility and defend as we can do.
