WEYMOUTH Reserves’ boss Bradley Asagba was happy to win ugly, as his side battled to a 1-0 win over South Cheriton United on Wednesday night.

Sanchez Jansz-Baker scored the only goal of a game that was affected by difficult conditions with a strong, swirling wind.

He said: “I’m fairly happy with the win. Some of the supporters may not be too impressed with the performance but the conditions didn’t allow us to play the sort of football we want to play.

“Their (South Cheriton’s) approach was to take a point if possible, so we have to take it for what it is, which is three points, and move on to the next one.”

The visitors set up to frustrate the Terras, something Asagba thinks his side coped with well.

Asagba added: “They came to defend and they didn’t show much adventure. This is something we are capable of dealing with and taking on the chin. We managed that well.”

After beating second-from-bottom South Cheriton in midweek, the Terras will welcome the Dorset Premier League’s bottom club Cranborne to the Bob Lucas Stadium on Saturday (3pm).

Cranborne have won just one game this season and have a goal difference of -101, but Asagba thinks they will be a different type of opposition to South Cheriton.

“When we played them before we beat them 6-1 but we played badly and it should’ve been 15 or 18,” he said. “Giving their position in the league they might come here and have a go and just enjoy themselves.

“They could come here, get on the ball and express themselves. They have nothing to lose.”

The manager’s side have no new injury worries ahead of the game but Asagba will look to rotate the squad and give some of his players that have been on the bench in recent matches a run out.

“We have a balanced and strong squad, he explained. We may rotate ever so slightly but this won’t affect the squad’s balance and the quality of the team.

“Rotating a few should not have any adverse effects.”
