WEYMOUTH boss Mark Molesley admits it is sad to have to prioritise the league but still wants to win the Dorset Senior Cup, ahead of the semi-final clash at Poole Town this evening (7.45pm).

The cup semi-final comes as Weymouth top the Evo-Stik Southern Premier South heading into the last nine games of the season.

Molesley said: “It is a competition we want to do well in, unfortunately we have also got to prioritise at the moment.

“We have got nine big league games coming up and we need to maybe turn our attentions to them slightly a little bit more.

“It is sad to say, because you want to win everything and we definitely want to win the cup but with the injuries at the moment we can not risk key players at this moment.”

Molesley will make a number of changes, but admits he will have to wait to see how his squad settles following his side’s 3-0 win at home against Hendon.

Jordan Ngalo pulled out of the starting line-up on Saturday due to tightness in his hamstring, while Callum Buckley was not risked from the bench.

However, Harry Baker was able to make his return from a back injury as a late substitute.

Molesley said: “Some players need much-needed minutes. Unfortunately Josh Carmichael was ill as well, we couldn’t risk Callum either, so we will just have to see how everyone settles.”
