Hodges Feels Truro Side Are Back To Their Best

It may have been a late goal that eliminated the Vanarama National League South side from the FA Trophy but manager Lee Hodges took plenty of positives from how his Truro City side performed.

A late one nil loss at Sutton United means their focus is not solely back on the league but Hodges was feeling proud about what he had seen on Saturday, writes Tom Feaheny.

“To put in that kind of performance against a high-flying side from the League above was superb,” Hodges told the club's website.

“We’re looking back to our best; in football you don’t always get what you deserve and a slight mistake has cost us here.

“We were great all over the pitch and as the game went on, we looked the most likely side, so it makes it even more disappointing that we lost it so late on. I thought that we were well-organised and worked extremely hard. The players should feel proud of where we’re at right now."

Truro who are seventh in the National League South are just three points off top spot and know the next set of games could be crucial if they can achieve promotion.

“It’s a case of picking ourselves up and being ready to go into the busy festive period now. We’ve proven hard to beat in the first half of the season and we want to kick-on from here now.

“There are lots of points to play for and our aim is to make sure that we’re still in and around it after the festive period."
