BASINGSTOKE Town will be looking to make it three wins on the trot and take the scalp of visiting Southern League Premier South leaders Weymouth on Saturday.

The Dragons roared into the second qualifying round last weekend with an impressive 4-2 win over visiting Wimborne, as Sam Argent scored twice and Ben Wright and Jack McKnight were also on target.

This followed on from an equally impressive 3-0 success in the league over Staines, which moved Town up to ninth.

Last season at the Camrose, Weymouth’s Brandon Goodship scored a 93rd minute equaliser to rescue a point for the Terras in another high scoring clash which ended 3-3.

Looking ahead to the visit Town manager Jason Bristow said: “They are going well this season at the top and we are looking forward to the game. Last season we played well against them and deserved more than the one point we got from the two games.”

Saturday’s win in the FA Trophy saw Town give a debut to new left back Rob Gerrard from Hellenic League side Reading City.

The 22-year-old certainly impressed on his first start for the team picking up an assist on Town’s opener against Wimborne.

Bristow said: “I think Rob had a very good debut and showed what he can do. Jim (Orvis) and George (Bennett) have filled in well at left back this season, but it great to have a player who is used to the role and gives our defence a real balance.”

Saturday’s victory in the FA Trophy earned Town another home tie in the second qualifying round on November 10, when high flying Isthmian Premier side Enfield Town will be the visitors.
