WEYMOUTH boss Brian Stock is “high on confidence” as the Terras embark on a testing trip to Chesterfield in the Vanarama National League tomorrow (3pm).

The Terras beat Wealdstone 4-0 on Saturday, taking their 2021 tally to 19 points, and are bidding for a fourth victory in nine league games at the Technique Stadium.

Standing in their way are the Spireites who, under highly-rated boss James Rowe, have conceded just twice at home since he joined from Gloucester in November.

Only Wrexham and leaders Sutton have netted at Chesterfield since Rowe took charge, leading to a sharp rise up the standings.

The Derbyshire side are two points outside the play-offs with two games in hand, while the Terras occupy 20th.

Their form has cautioned Weymouth boss Brian Stock into a respectful approach as the Terras seek to improve an away record featuring just 10 points all season.

He told Echosport: “It’s tough, we’re going to go to a very strong opposition, a very good ground and they’ve got the structure to be League Two, pushing League One if not more.

“They’ve got the fan base, the financial backing. We need to make sure we improve our away form.

“But I don’t go into it thinking our away form isn’t good, because we should be high on confidence.

“I am as a manager and hopefully that breeds throughout the whole team.”

Weymouth have no injury concerns ahead of the game, but they will come up against an old teammate in Tom Whelan, who was sold to Chesterfield after the 2-1 loss in November.

On Whelan, Stock added: “Tom went with our blessing and he’s very, very good guy.

“When it came to weighing up his options, it all favoured the fact that he wanted go to full-time and live nearer home. We supported that.

“He’s gone there, performed well and the team’s missed him when he’s not been there. He brings a lot of energy to the side.

“We need to be aware of his forward runs into the side and he’s good for a goal.”

Stock hopes there will be no communication between his players and Whelan ahead of the game.

“I hope there isn’t anything,” he said. “I find it quite strange when players talk to the other players.

“I’m very much one of those that will pick the conversation up after the game.

“I probably would go to the extreme as a player to not even reply, that was the focus I would have.

“When the final whistle went, we’d have a conversation afterwards.

“It might be something I need to address to make sure we keep things private and keep our business close to our chest.”
