Abdulai Baggie admitted that the atmosphere from the 822 crowd helped Weymouth to victory over Slough Town on Tuesday night.

Weymouth earned the vital three points to keep their quest for the highest possible play-off spot on track thanks to a Calvin Brooks goal in the 46th minute in the Evo-Stik Southern Premier Division. Baggie fired in the cross after working well with Ben Thomson to weave through the Rebels’ defence for Brooks to hammer home for his fourth goal in three games.

Baggie, when asked if the players fed off the atmosphere, said: “Of course, it all helps having good fans and having good turnout as well but the aim was to win, that was all as a group collectively, individually, myself as well and we did that in good fashion.

“I thought we deserved the win, in the first half, I thought we had the best chances of the game and we should have put them away. We obviously kept plugging away and went into the second half still in the positive vibe and we knew the goal was going to come and it did.

“It was a good goal from Calvin. It is always good to beat your play-off rivals but, as I said, we look to go to every game to try and win whether it is teams in the top five, top 10 or in the lower half of the table.”
