Weymouth boss Martyn Rogers demands intensity

Weymouth boss Martyn Rogers has urged his side to raise their game for their final three matches as they look to avoid relegation.

Weymouth sit one point above the Zamaretto Premier Division drop zone having lost 18 of 37 games this season.

"We need a maximum level of intensity to get that extra push," Rogers told BBC Radio Solent.

"We know the consequences. No-one wants relegation on their CV so it's important everyone gives their utmost."

The Terras beat Rogers' former club Tiverton Town 4-0 on Saturday to lift themselves out of the bottom three, however the Weymouth boss says the result felt bittersweet having spent 20 years at the Devon-based side.

"Obviously going back after 20 years of service with the club the result was tinged with sadness," he said.

"I was delighted to get the result for the club, the supporters and the players but there was a hint of sadness as we put Tiverton further into relegation.

"But we need to capitalise on that result and it was important to get out of relegation and hopefully we can stay there.

"We've got three tough games but we're well capable of getting results out of those, main thing is for us to stay in this division."
