Wealdstone will want to maintain the good mood around the club with a victory at Dulwich Hamlet in the Vanarama National League South on Saturday.

Stones head into this weekend’s game fifth in the table after a 3-0 win at home to Truro City on Saturday saw them continue their bright start to the new term.

The weekend also saw boss Bobby Wilkinson extend his contract with the club, putting an end to speculation linking him with a move away from Grosvenor Vale, having been given permission by the board to speak to two unnamed clubs regarding their mangerial positions.

It seems there is a real buzz around Wealdstone in the early weeks of the season, and they will hope to add to that with a victory at Imperial Fields this weekend.

But assistant manager Mike Percival has warned Stones they face a tough game at Hamlet this weekend.

“There are no ‘gimmes’ in this league and every week is going to be a tough week,” Percival told the club website.

“Dulwich will be looking for a reaction and we’ve already seen a few videos of them and started doing some work on them.

“We know they’re a good side, especially going forward and they have some fans that really get behind them, so it’s going to be a completely different game in terms of how we manage it.”

At home to Truro last Saturday, Wealdstone bounced back from a disappointing loss at Oxford City on Bank Holiday Monday with their fourth triumph of the season.

Bradley Bubb bagged a brace for Stones in the victory, with Bradley Hudson-Odoi scoring the other goal.

And Percival was pleased with how straightforward the victory was for Wilkinson’s men, believing they could have performed to a higher level if they needed to.

“It was comfortable. We probably could have upped our performance another level or two easily,” added the assistant manager.

“That’s not a criticism because the boys managed the game absolutely unbelievably. I do believe if they wanted to go up another level, which they could have, the boys could have put five or six past Truro.

“Credit where it’s due, we had a difficult day on Monday, so to respond how we did by getting a clean sheet, looking solid and getting three goals was pleasing.”
