DANNY Scopes believes Concord Rangers owe the supporters a big performance at Weymouth after crashing out of the FA Cup last week.

Although Aron Pollock put the Beach Boys ahead at Margate, the Isthmian Premier League outfit came from behind to secure a 2-1 win and reach the third qualifying round of the competition.

Concord’s attentions will turn back to the National League South tomorrow and Scopes admits he still feels as though he let the club down after an early FA Cup exit.

“We came away from Margate bitterly disappointed because we should have won the game,” said boss Scopes, who took charge in May.

“It’s a game we probably should have won because they have a bit of an injury crisis at the moment.

“We have no right to win any game but, on paper and current form, we should have beaten them.

“It was a competition we wanted to do well in for the benefit of the football club.

“We probably let the club down and that’s the hardest thing to take.

“I think we owe it to the club to put in a really good performance at Weymouth.

“We need to repay the club and supporters somehow over the course of the season and there would be nothing better than starting that this weekend.

“I am disappointed in myself that I allowed that kind of performance to happen, but the players also have to take accountability for that as well.”

Concord are currently ninth in the National League South standings, while newly-promoted Weymouth are fifth despite seeing last season’s top goalscorer Brandon Goodship secure a move to Southend United in the summer.

And Scopes insists his side will need to be stronger at both ends of the pitch if they are to leave Cornwall with a positive result.

Scopes added: “We had 12 good chances in the first half and hit the crossbar twice at Margate last weekend.

“We created lots of chances but we were very sloppy defensively and gave away a couple of cheap goals.

“It was frustrating that we didn’t create as many chances in the second half, but we were just sloppy all over the park.

“We need to be better at both ends of the pitch tomorrow.”

And Scopes is not surprised by Weymouth’s early season success.

“They have come through the leagues and so they have come up with a bit of momentum,” admitted Scopes.

“Weymouth are used to winning and they signed some really good players who are used to this level.”
