Having just fallen short of the play-offs during the last two seasons, Weymouth supporters must be disappointed with their current mid-table league placement (11th) with 44 points from 31 games.

This will be the last of three consecutive away games for the Terras, following matches against Cambridge City (L 2-1) and, last Saturday, Basingstoke Town (W 6-1), when Stuart Fleetwood scoring a hat-rick (he has now scored in each of the last five games, hitting the net eight times).

It should be noted that during January the Terras also recorded two other impressive away successes at St. Neots (W4-0) and Kings Lynn (W 6-1).

On their travels Weymouth have played three 'top six' teams this term; Chippenham Town (L0-2), Leamington (D1-1) and Hitchin Town (D 1-1).

Earlier this season Rebels gained three points when they visited Dorset, winning the match 1-0. Compensation for last seasons 6-1 hammering away, although the 1-0 home win in the return fixture was some consolation.

Terras have enjoyed better fortune in this seasons cup competitions, reaching the FA Cup 4th Round Qualifying before losing 0-6 away to Kidderminster Harriers (Conference North) and the First Round Proper in the FA Trophy before being beaten 2-1 at home against Whitehawk (Conference South) after holding the Brighton outfit to a 1-1 draw in Sussex.
