WESTON boss Craig Laird believes Saturday’s game at Bromley is like the start of a new season following several postponed matches in recent weeks.
The Seagulls’ home game with Dorchester Town was called off following heavy snowfall last weekend and Tuesday evening’s clash at Sutton also fell foul of the bad weather.
The club has suffered four postponements since Christmas and Laird fears they have checked his side’s momentum.
He said: “We’ve lost any momentum we have had and it’s a shame. But Bromley had a nice vein of form before the break too.”
Laird said his side are focussing on improving defensively this week after conceding early goals in recent defeats to Bath and Hayes and Yeading.

In both games the Seagulls found themselves two down inside the opening quarter of an hour and Laird said: “It’s been too much for us to catch up and we can’t keep doing that.”
Victory at 10th placed Bromley could take Weston back into the play-off places if results go their way.
