Weston manager Marc McGregor has vowed his side will finish in a ‘very positive position’ this year, despite slipping to defeat on bank holiday Monday.

The Seagulls came from 2-0 down on Saturday against Chippenham Town to secure a point thanks to Jake Reid and Dayle Grubb’s late strikes.

But an early penalty miss from Grubb at Truro on Monday proved costly as Tyler Harvey and Cody Cooke gave the home side a two goal lead.

Jake Lee slotted the ball home late on but it was not enough for the Seagulls to avoid a fourth defeat of the season.

After Monday’s match, Marc McGregor told the Mercury he was pleased with the performance, but not with the defending.

He said: “I am disappointed with the result and how we defended for both goals.

“We need to assess that and be a little bit more solid.

“We were the better team, and I think that anyone who was here would have seen that. But we can’t keep saying that. The next stage is to move them into results.

“Dayle is going to miss penalties and he won me a point on Saturday and has been brilliant for me, so I won’t say too much about it.”

Weston are back at The Woodspring Stadium on Saturday, as they host in-form Havant and Waterlooville. Kick-off is at 3pm, with Weston second bottom of the National League and Havant sitting pretty in fourth.

But McGregor added he is pleased with the individual players he has and assured fans results will pick up.

He said: “We have fit lads, and it is better for us to be playing regularly.

“We have two games now that we can go on and put this result behind us, which I am sure we will do.

“The lads had a bit of a sit down and a heart to heart and we assessed what we wanted and what we can improve.

“Jacob Cane has put in a hell of a shift, Naby Diallo has come in and done well, Grubb has had a great start to the season, so I can’t really name players as stand-outs as they have all put a shift in for us.

“Mark my words, we will finish in a very positive position this year.”
