In their second National League South game of the season, Weston host Truro City in the first league game at the Woodspring Stadium of 2018-19.
Weston didn’t get off to the start they wanted on Saturday, losing 4 – 1 away to Wealdstone after having conceded twice in the first seven minutes of the game. Marc McGregor will be hoping that Louis McGrory will be fit to play Tuesday after suffering a bad knock in the league opener, while a better defensive performance will be demanded from the side by the man in the hotseat.
Towards the end of pre-season, Truro were hit with the news that they would be playing their home football at Torquay United’s Plainmoor for the season, and ultimately lost their first “home” game on Saturday, losing 0 – 4 to Billericay Town, Jake Robinson scoring all four goals. Truro also have former Seagulls trialist in Paul Bignot, a summer signing after the right-back didn’t sign a contract at the Woodspring.
Last time the two sides met was in April, in Weston’s penultimate league game of the season. A direct goal for Connor Riley-Lowe from a corner set Truro on their way, before the now departed Ash Kington nodded a corner into his own net via a lack of communication to hand Truro a 0 – 2 win at the Woodspring.
About the game, Marc McGregor commented:
It’s another tough game, they’re a good side and they’ve got some really good players. I know that they’ve lost a couple, but they’ve managed to retain a few too. They’ll be strong, they’ll compete, hard to beat so we’re under no illusions that it’ll be a tough game. We’ll be back at home, back on a pitch where it’ll be a little bit easier to move the ball.
