Stones have almost 300-mile round trip on Tuesday to play Seagulls
Wealdstone have a lengthy trip on Tuesday night when they head to the Somerset coast to tackle Weston-super-Mare in the National League South.
Stones face a round-trip of just under 300 miles to visit the Seagulls, with new manager Bobby Wilkinson still looking for his first win in charge.
On Saturday, the Grosvenor Vale club were also on the road as they drew 1-1 at East Thurrock United.
And Wilkinson says it is important that Wealdstone give everything they can on away days to repay the support of their travelling fans.
“I don’t care if the fans travel one mile down the road, or 25 miles down the road, you have to show 110 per cent and these fans will back you all the way, just like the manager will,” Wilkinson told the club website.
Wealdstone will be without defender Aron Pollock for the trip to the Woodspring Stadium after the teenager’s loan deal from National League outfit Leyton Orient was terminated early.
The centre-back only moved to Stones on a one-month loan on August 18 and made three appearances, but has since been deemed surplus to requirements.
“I have released loan player Aron Pollock back to Leyton Orient on Monday and Benji Crilley has returned to Chesham,” Wilkinson added.
Stones will be able to select winger Alan O’Brien and midfielder Stephane Ngamvolou, who both joined on Monday from Chippenham Town and Hungerford Town respectively.
