Weston will keep their principals in play-off push

WITH Saturday’s match against Chelmsford cancelled due to a frozen pitch, Weston will have had a two week break to prepare for Saturday’s fixture against Woking.

Boss Craig Laird thinks the enforced hiatus will have helped his squad as they look to bounce back from defeats in their last two games.

Despite those losses, against Boreham Wood and Bromley, the team remain sixth in the Blue Square South table, and well-placed to continue their assault on the play-offs as the season enters its final three months.

Although Weston will face runaway league leaders Woking at the Woodspring Stadium on Saturday, Craig will not change the team’s style and says his players can bounce back from the disappointment of their last two results.

He said: “We are doing more good than bad, so we will continue playing with the same principals that have got us in this position. We won’t be going out there to make the numbers up, we want the win.

“The first aim was survival and we have secured that, now we can push on and see where we can finish, but our target has to be a play-off spot, we are in a great position for that.”

The club has also remained relatively injury-free in recent weeks, with Dayle Grubb available for selection again after a broken finger.
