BRIAN Stock is keen to take revenge on Halifax Town today (3pm) after the Shaymen dished out a 5-1 drubbing to Weymouth in December.

Played in front of the BT Sport cameras, the game was notorious for a pitch invader – just as the Terras had halved the deficit to 2-1 with 25 minutes to go.

It remains Weymouth’s biggest defeat of the season – but the claret and blues have vastly improved since then, taking 22 points since the turn of the year.

Asked if he is out to exact revenge, Stock told Echosport: “Most definitely.

“For me, it wasn’t necessarily a 5-1 defeat. I had no complaints about them winning the game, but I felt it was never a 5-1 result.

“It didn’t really epitomise what we’re like now.”

Eight of Weymouth’s 12 remaining Vanarama National League fixtures are away from home – a thorny statistic given the Terras have claimed just two wins from 13 on their travels.

Quizzed on how he will address Weymouth’s away form, Stock said: “It’s important that your home form’s good and we’ve managed to turn a corner with that.

“In particular with performances and then results. The fact that we’ve played the majority of games at home has given us that momentum.

“It gives us the opportunity to try and pick up a few more points away from home.”

Andy Robinson (gluteal) could return but Brennan Camp (hamstring) is doubtful. Captain Josh McQuoid (ankle) is out.

Stock said: “Robbo was close to getting a starting place (against Maidenhead).

“I felt because he hasn’t necessarily trained as much, we’ve given him an extra couple of days so he’s good to go Monday.

“The only concern will be Brennan. We need to assess him. Apart from that, we’ve almost got a fully-fit squad.”
