WESTON boss Andy Gurney has warned that Friday's game at home to Weymouth is a 'must-win' fixture.
The Seagulls manager says taking three points will be vital to stop his team being cut adrift at the foot of the table just six games into the season.
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.

"There's no panic, but we've had a very poor start."

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.
