Stones have won last three in all competitions ahead of clash with Seagulls

Wealdstone will want to continue their recent good form when they entertain Weston-super-Mare in the National League South on Saturday.

The Stones have won each of their last three games in all competitions, including a 3-0 success at Bognor Regis Town in the league on Saturday.

Bobby Wilkinson’s men took the lead in the 39th minute on the south coast at the weekend when Rocks forward Tommy Scutt turned the ball into his own net.

Recent signing Ian Gayle marked his league debut for the Grosvenor Vale club by doubling the visitors’ advantage in the 64th minute.

Wealdstone looked to be dealt a blow two minutes later when midfielder Ricky Wellard was dismissed after picking up a second booking.

However, despite being a man light, Stones were able to add a third through Abobaker Eisa 16 minutes from time.

The success at Bognor was a first league win since December 2 for Wilkinson’s men, ending a run of four matches in the division without a success.

The Grosvenor Vale outfit will be keen to build on that this weekend, though it could be a tight affair with Weston.

Heading into the weekend, Wealdstone are a point and a place behind the Seagulls, though the visitors this weekend have played a game less.

When the sides met at the Woodspring Stadium back in September, Stones suffered their heaviest defeat of the campaign to date.

Wilkinson’s men coped well in the first half, with an Eddie Oshodi header cancelling out the Weston opener as the sides went into the break level at 1-1.

However, the Seagulls ran riot after the interval, netting four goals to eventually prevail 5-1.

Having suffered such a heavy loss in their last meeting with Weston, Wealdstone will want to restore an element of pride this Saturday.

n Wealdstone will now visit promotion hopefuls Havant & Waterlooville on March 13, with a 7.45pm kick off.

The sides had been due to meet on January 6, but a waterlogged pitch at Havant’s West Leigh Park home led to the fixture being postponed until a later date.
