Hodges Not Getting Carried Away With Winning Start

Truro City head to Concord Rangers tomorrow looking to extend their winning start to the season.

The White Tigers have won both of their opening matches in the Vanarama National League South.

"I am delighted with the way in which the lads have gone about their business so far," said manager Lee Hodges. "We've got a good squad together and the hard work that they put in during pre-season is paying dividends.

"We're full of life and energy and it's very pleasing to see.

"I thought we did really well in the first half against Welling United; we were sloppy on a couple of occasions at set-pieces in the second half, but got the luck that we deserved to win and then on Monday evening at Gloucester City we looked well-organised and were worthy winners.

"It will be another difficult game tomorrow. Concord will go into it on a high after getting their first win on Tuesday against a much-fancied Hemel Hempstead Town.

"There are no easy games in this league. It's clear to see already how competitive it's going to be and if we start to think that we are better than we are, we will get beat, simple as that.

"We have to be ready and focussed for another battle and hopefully we can keep doing the right things to add another three points to our tally.

"At this stage of the season, and with the games coming thick and fast, it is all about picking up as many points as possible.

"We have a good squad and there are options all over the pitch. I am having to leave good players out, but it is important to keep them happy because everyone will have a role to play as the season goes on.

"We have set some high standards already and we need to build on these".
