With the eight bookings that we picked up at Stevenage we now see Russ Penn on fourteen bookings for the season so far and he'll need to get his fifteenth in PDQ unless he doesn't want to go to Wembley in the Trophy Final. It may sound crazy but I hope he gets booked tomorrow.
No real injuries to report but Jonny Harkness did limp off the other night and may be doubtful. The Stevenage fans said that he was just time wasting???
Weymouth are going through a torrid time at the moment, after having half the team pulled apart and sold on to other clubs, when the chairman realised that the club was haemorrhaging money due to his mis-calculations about future income. The core of the side including Tony Scully, Lee Elam, Ben Smith, Arran Lee-Barrett and others were all given the heave ho and a load of kids from the local park were bought in.
They did have the odd good result but in recent weeks have become the Leagues whipping boys with some big defeats. It all came to a head last week at Cambridge - no great shakes themselves - when they got hammered 7-0 and followed it up midweek at Rushden with a 4-1 drubbing.
What better time to meet them and what better time to get them back for beating us at Aggborough back at the start of the season when they scored an early goal through a dodgy penalty and we then launched an all out attack on their goal for eighty minutes but were unable to get past Lee-Barrett.
The only injury doubt that Weymouth have is to a former Harriers target, Trevor Challis. He got injured during warm-up before a game against Tamworth a few weeks ago and the Terras will be hoping he's back tomorrow to stop the rot.
It'll be a nice day out at the seaside for some fans tomorrow and I think it could also be a nice day for picking up three points.
