WEYMOUTH manager David Oldfield expects a “very competitive” pre-season friendly at Poole Town tomorrow (3pm).

Oldfield’s men start the contest as favourites by virtue of their Vanarama National League status but Tom Killick’s Poole have made a number of impressive signings.

Ex-Bournemouth and Portsmouth midfielder Wes Fogden and former Taunton striker Toby Holmes have both joined the Southern League Premier South side.

However, Oldfield is purely concentrated on his team’s performance rather than the result.

He told Echosport: “Poole are a good side and have got big ambitions, we’re well aware of that and it’s going to be a very competitive game.

“Whatever happens, I’m not particularly interested in the result but we know we have a big challenge.

“Their ambition is impressive and we need to make sure we’re doing our work and we’re ready to run, as we do with all the games.

“I’m certainly not good enough to differentiate between pre-season games and normal games.

“We have to do the same things and work as hard as we can collectively, so it’s a big test for us.”

Weymouth go into their third pre-season friendly after hammering Bridport 10-0 and Oldfield revealed fitness will take priority over tactical detail at this stage.

He said: “It will be fitness and work, all wrapped in together. Exactly the same as Poole, they will see us as an opportunity to get their work in.”

Weymouth have just one injury concern over their number seven trialist, whose knee was heavily strapped at Bridport before his first-half substitution.
