A relieved Weymouth scored two late goals to record a 2-0 victory that was cruel to take for a hard-working Kings Langley side.

A Sam Tring own goal two minute from the end of normal time, plus Charlie Seaman’s stoppage-time second, condemned fourth-from-bottom Kings to their ninth defeat of the season, leaving assistant boss Andy Stratford to lament what might have been.

He said: “I’m amazed that we have nothing to show for our efforts, despite controlling large periods of the game.

“This seems to be the story of our season. We can dominate spells, but are not clinical in front of goal during these periods. But we are really proud of them today, regardless.”

The experienced Elliott Godfrey made his debut for Langley after signing on dual registration from Wealdstone, but the somewhat turgid first half passed virtually incident free, although the visitors enjoyed the best of the meagre fare on offer.

The hosts failed to register a shot on target in the opening period, while their opponents provided a few bright moments, most notably in the first minute when Mitchell Weiss nearly caught out keeper Mark Travers with an audacious long-range shot that went just over.

The Terras were carved open midway through the first half when Brendan Ocran’s pull-back set up Jorell Johnson, but he fired wide.

Weymouth’s best moment came on 26 minutes when Charlie Davis shot over from the edge of the box, before Weiss fired straight at Travers at the other end.

Just before the hour, Kings had a double chance to break the deadlock. Kieran Turner’s shot was clawed away by Travers before Ocran’s follow up was superbly cleared off the line by Callum Buckley. And Weymouth made them pay with a dramatic finish.

With two minutes of normal time left, Ben Thomson’s fierce low centre was diverted into his own net by the luckless Sam Tring.

To rub salt into the wound, on-loan Bournemouth youngster Seaman capped a fine debut by slamming home a left footer after his initial drive was parried by Martin Bennett.
