Weymouth trip for Blues

will look to avenge their 3-2 home defeat against Weymouth when they travel to south coast, on Saturday.

When the sides met in September, the Terras left Stortford with all three points thanks to a77th minute winning goal from keeper Mark Travers.

The on-loan AFC Bournemouth stopper struck a free-kick from midway in his own half over the top of his opposite number Nicky Eyre and under the bar.

Eyre promptly re-retired following the game.

As his side look to bounce back from Monday’s home loss against Royston Town, boss Kevin Watson will hope striker Dipo Akinyemi will recover from bruised ribs and also that player-coach Mark Hughes will be fit enough to start the game after being restricted to sporadic substitute appearances following an injury.The Terras are challenging for the Evo-Stik South Premier title, sitting two places and three points behind leaders Kettering Town with 54 points from 26 games.

Since losing at Slough Town in November they have gone unbeaten in eight games, taking 20 points in the process, and their surprise 2-2 draw with Dorchester Town on Boxing Day was watched by a crowd of 1,885.

While the Dorset side have slid down the non-league pyramid in recent years – Blues winning 6-2 when they last met at the Bob Lucas Stadium– they have always been able to attract decent crowds, with this year’s promotion push seeing them second in the attendance table with an average of 772.
