#EvostikLeagueSouth

The Terras head to Somerset looking to continue their rich vein in form and look to make it 4 wins in a row, which would be Weymouth’s longest winning streak of the season if the 3 points are picked up.

After coming from behind to beat Hendon 2-3 on Tuesday night it continues Weymouth’s record of scoring in every league game this season, something which has been achieved by a Weymouth team after 31 games played totalling in 73 goals scored so far this season.

Frome are currently lying in 21st position after 31 games played, picking up only 30 points and are 7 points behind Dorchester, who they beat 0-1 on February 12th, and Dorchester are the team immediately above the relegation zone. Frome’s record stands at; Won 9, Drawn 3 and lost 19. 5 of those wins for Frome were picked up at home, the most recent a 1-0 win against Wimborne on January 5th.

Speaking ahead of the visit, Paul Maitland told theterras.com, “The squad is in a good place after 3 wins on the spin and competition for places is high. As we approach the business end of the season every player will have a contribution to make.

“These days football is much more of squad game and we are fortunate that all of our squad are capable of contributing to the team.

“Frome away is always a tough game and as much as we are pushing for promotion they are fighting to stay up. We will need to be sharp and on point to continue our run.”

The previous meeting between these 2 teams was on December 8th which resulted in a comfortable 4-0 win for Weymouth. The goals were scored by Calvin Brooks and a hat trick for England C striker Brandon Goodship. The two meetings between the teams last season were a 1-4 away win for Weymouth and then a 0-2 away win for Frome in the returning fixture.
