WEYMOUTH manager Brian Stock admitted he will furlough players if the lack of Vanarama National League relegation demotivates them.

Stock had earlier watched his side lose 2-0 at high-flying Wrexham after Theo Vassell and Jordan Ponticelli goals.

Stock’s comments came after Wrexham’s commentary team suggested the Terras would not mind if they were beaten 5-0 or 6-0 by the Red Dragons.

The FA Council is yet to ratify a vote by clubs to null and void Step 2 and continue Step 1 – Weymouth’s level.

The Terras are currently sat in 20th and any confirmation of the vote will lead to Weymouth being safe from the drop.

Questioned on whether a below-par second half was down to fatigue or lack of relegation threat, Stock gave a stern message to his players.

He added: “The first part I would agree. We lacked energy and there were a few tired legs out there; no snap, no intensity. That died throughout the game.

“In terms of the relegation thing, I do not want to be that manager that downs tools. There is a group of players that’ve come off the pitch away to Wrexham disappointed to have lost.

“This group have come a long, long way since the start of the season. They’ve been superb, consistent performances.

“When it comes to this team trying to accumulate as many points as we can, I would never doubt that one second.

“We’ll be doing exactly the same thing (at Dagenham), we’ll be going to win.

“If (easing off) was the case and I felt that players were not caring, they would be furloughed and I would bring players in that would want to win points for Weymouth.”
