WEYMOUTH manager Brian Stock believes the Terras are making “great strides” in performance ahead of hosting Bromley tomorrow (3pm).

In the past four Vanarama National League games, Weymouth have won and lost two games apiece – only conceding two goals.

But league form at the Bob Lucas Stadium – a stronghold of the past two campaigns – has been poor with nine losses from 12 games and featuring just two wins.

Speaking to Echosport, Stock expressed his desire to address Weymouth’s home record and credited his team for their recent improvements.

He said: “When you look at home games across the season, you look to make it a fortress.

“Over the past two or three years, the fans have had a big part to play in that.

“Sometimes, when it comes to home and away games it becomes a level ground these days with the fact that no fans can enter the stadium.

“We’re going to assess the performances and one or things we’re trying to achieve.

“I feel we’re making great strides. When you take into consideration some of the performances we’ve put in this year, I think the last 30 minutes (at Boreham Wood) we ran out of steam.

“That might be something I need to look at in terms of how much demand we’ve put on the players in a short period of time.”

Stock also praised Weymouth’s adaptation to a more hybrid playing style.

He said: “It’s a style I want to repeat on a more consistent basis.

“You look at results and sometimes those beliefs might have to be paused for the sacrifice of trying to get results.

“We don’t want to come away from being that fast-flowing, attractive team. We’ve almost turned into a team that can counter at pace.

“We’ve kept two clean sheets and only conceded one in two very tight games.

“I’m pleased with where the team's heading, everyone’s commitment (for players) outside the squad.”

Giving an update on midweek training, he added: “We put on a Tuesday night session which was run by the club.

“In an ideal world, you want to take every player to home and away games. It’s tough.

“The lads that trained put in a fantastic shift, showed a really great mentality. Collectively, we’re all in a good place.”

Weymouth skipper Josh McQuoid has been ruled out of the game with a minor hamstring complaint, while Josh Leslie-Smith (concussion) and Ben Thomson (ankle) continue to step up their training regimes.
