EZIO Touray is “on fire” and loving life at Weymouth, according to manager Bobby Wilkinson.

Italian forward Touray has bagged five goals in three games since joining the Terras prior to the 3-1 win at Dover Athletic.

His brace in that game convinced Weymouth to secure the striker to a contract and the move appears to be shrewd business.

Touray has gone on to net a double in the FA Cup at Highworth Town and then scored the equaliser during the 1-1 draw with Chippenham.

The only blemish on the ex-Watford man’s copybook was a saved penalty late in the Chippenham draw but Wilkinson otherwise had nothing but praise for the former Basingstoke marksman.

He said: “He struck the penalty really well, it was just a good save.

“I have to say his goal before that was unbelievable from the angle, bottom corner.

“He’s on fire at the moment and he loves it here already. The fans were brilliant towards him and he’s very disappointed because we should’ve got the three points.

“I’m never going to turn on him, I love the way he’s playing and he’s been a big difference.”

Touray’s goal helped spark the Terras’ fans with 30 minutes to go, despite playing with ten men, and Wilkinson highlighted their influence on the performance.

He said: “When we went down to ten men, that’s what I love about these fans. We knew we needed them.

“I got louder, they got louder and the players got more energy. We’ve got to make it a fortress at home. We’re giving them something to cheer about.”
