WESTON boss Andy Gurney has warned that Friday's game at home to Weymouth is a 'must-win' fixture.

Gurney's charges are joint bottom having taken just one point from the first four games of the season.
He said: "Basically, we are at a point that Friday is a must-win game for us.

The 35-year-old player manager said defensive mistakes once again cost his side in the defeat at Dover.
Gurney added: "We started the game fantastically and we were dominating until their first goal, which came from a free-kick that shouldn't have been given.
"It was a strange game and despite being 4-1 down at half-time, we thought we were in the game.
"But it's still disappointing to see some of the errors we are making and we'll need to sort those out.
