THE Terras returned to the top of the table with a 3-0 win at Hendon in a calm, assured performance on Saturday.

What can we take from the Weymouth display? Aidan Williams is on hand to take you through five talking points.

IT WAS pretty hard to not notice on a cursory glance to Twitter the results of title rivals Taunton Town and Salisbury.

Arguably, another big two points dropped for the former, and three for the latter which has allowed Weymouth to re-take the top spot in a manner that almost feels disarming.

Yet the fact it feels like that is the biggest warning. It has been a big fight to be back at the top of the table so I doubt Weymouth will suddenly ignore the scars from the battle.

Regardless of how it plays out, this battle at the top is proving a big credit to the league.

DEFENCE cannot be understated from the victory. Hendon had their chances and put the pressure on but the Terras held firm.

Weymouth never looked rattled and seldom rushed. Led at the back by goalkeeper Tom McHale they can rightfully feel pleased about that performance.

It has been a tough couple of months or so considering the personnel changes and some of the injuries, but that was assured and confident from the boys at the back.

Two clean sheets on the bounce is a fine addition to the already creditable five wins on the spin.

I FELT like the second half really epitomised where Weymouth are at now.

During their tough run of form earlier in the season, the pressure Hendon put on them at the start of the second half might have told and with the scores at 1-0 to the Terras at the time it could have been pivotal.

Yet, instead, Yemi Odubade raced up the other end and made it 2-0 which really crushed any momentum Hendon were building up at the time. 

Weymouth are in some very, very good form and if there was ever a goal to scream that it was Odubade's.

CALLUM Buckley was carrying a knock and thus did not come off the bench, Jordan Ngalo pulled out of the starting team with tightness in his hamstring and Josh Wakefield had to come off with a knock just before half-time. 

Familiar frustrations for the Terras and one that may well slightly spoil the aftertaste of a 3-0 victory.

At this stage it is too early to tell, but will surely be a factor should they not recover in time for the trip to Wimborne on Saturday, or pick up any further knocks against Poole in the Dorset Senior Cup.

ANYONE listening to the pre-match music will be intrigued to know that it was actually selected by the players.

There were some questionable choices in there, the difference between Year 3000 being a nostalgic bit of fun and music to make your ears bleed will probably depend on how old you were when it was first released.

Other choices like Heroes by David Bowie will have been less controversial, with a lot of variety in the mix, while Club Foot by Kasabian is a fine track to walk out onto the pitch.

It is all very silly and light-hearted but quite amusing, and if it helps the Terras ease to a 3-0 win then I'm sure fans will tolerate the musical meanderings.
