After sweeping aside Margate, Blues struggled and made considerably harder work of their clash against Weymouth at the weekend.
The away clash at Wessex Stadium and in the early minutes of the match the home side stifled Grays’ usual attacking play and create their own chances as Shaun Wilkinson smacked the ball over from just seven yards after a decent build up.
Blues created their best chance of the half when midfielder Dean Brennan drew a great save from Weymouth keeper Jason Matthews.
But despite the visitors pressure it was the Terras who went ahead when a Robbie Pethick cross found Chukki Eribenne inside the box. Blue’s keeper Carl Emberson was wrong footed by the striker who just tapped the ball home.
Although Blues only avoided going two down by the skin of their teeth, the visitors came close themselves when Freddy Eastwood hit the woodwork and super sub Vill Powell began to make his presence felt.
Mark Stimson’s boys finally came good with just 15 minutes left on the clock, when Eddie Youds got above the Weymouth defence to head home a Brennan corner.
