Wealdstone were held to a goalless draw away at Gloucester on Sunday, before thumping Weston-Super-Mare 5-0 on Tuesday night.

The stones failed to break the deadlock against the Tigers at the weekend despite sustained periods of pressure.

Goalkeeper Tom King almost spilled the ball right into the path of Stones midfielder Simon Mensah in the six-yard box within seven minutes, but he managed to react and clear the ball with his right foot.

Seven minutes later Stones full-back Freddie Grant attempted an audacious left-footed volley which crept a fraction wide of the far post.

A further attempt from Danny Green was well saved by King, while Christian Smith had two strikes at goal that missed the target before the break.

Just before the hour-mark Green hit the post with the closest attempt anyone could muster during the second half, while a miscommunication between King and Sam Avery almost gifted the visitors an open goal with ten minutes remaining, but managed to clean up their mistake just in the nick of time.

Luck just did not seem the be on Stones’ side and Gloucester held on to their fourth consecutive home clean sheet.

Wealdstone had much more joy during the week when a brace from Simon Mensah, accompanied by goals from Connor Stevens, Tarryn Allarakhia and Christian Smith, secured a convincing win away at Weston-super-Mare.

The game could not have started any better for the away side when they took the lead after just six minutes.

Mensah’s deflected strike from the edge of the 18-yard-box found the net via the upright.

Stones would have to wait half an hour to double their advantage, but they eventually did through a powerful Stevens header, after he met Danny Green’s corner, following a brief period that saw the Seagulls on the front foot.

Shortly after the restart the game was put beyond Weston when Mensah doubled his goal tally by calmly picking up a loose ball and finishing low into the corner of the net.

Crawley loanee Allarakhia got himself on the scoresheet shortly after the hour mark to add some gloss to the scoreline, when he latched onto a defence-splitting pass from Smith and rolled the ball past Purnell at his near-post.

The rout was complete with just ten minutes remaning in the game when Smith notched from the penalty spot.

Mensah was clumsily-fouled by Purnell in the box and gave referee Scott Jackson little choice but to award the foul.

Smith took the shot and found the net.

Wealdstone remain unbeaten in 2019 and now sit in 8th place in the National League South table, just two points behind the play-off places.
