Weymouth boss Brian Stock conceded he had not experienced a more painful result in football as the Terras threw away a 2-0 lead, losing 3-2 to Wrexham, the Dorset Echo say.
In an immensely entertaining contest for the neutral, birthday boy Josh McQuoid and Jake McCarthy nodded red-hot Weymouth into a 2-0 lead.
But contrary to their half-time team-talk, Weymouth then sat back in the second half and invited Wrexham pressure as Theo Vassell’s rapid brace frayed home nerves.
Shamir Mullings saw red for an off-the-ball incident and six minutes later Weymouth were denied what looked a clear penalty when a Wrexham defender appeared to handle Calvin Brooks’ cross.
Seconds later, Reece Hall-Johnson’s looping cross soared into the far corner over a stranded Jack Bycroft to devastate the hosts, with Stock also sent off post-match for berating the officials.
Speaking to Echosport, Stock said his side were their “own downfall” as they slid to a fifth straight Vanarama National League defeat.
