City Alerts - Lee's view on the Salisbury game

LEE'S VIEW on  Truro City  2   Salisbury City  2 

"Obviously it was a big relief to save a point and full credit to Scott Walker for a fantasatic penalty in such a pressurised situation, but overall I was disappointed.  We created a lot of good chances in the first half and I thought we had edged it at half-time, but as so often this season it was completely different in the second half - we just never got going properly again.

"It's a mystery, and we're going to have a really good, long hard look at it this week.  Maybe we need to come back out onto the pitch earlier, get their legs going sooner;  maybe we need a fresh warm-up session.  I personally believe 15 minutes is too long for the interval anyway.  Ten minutes is quite enough to have your break and get your points across.  I gave them instructions, got all the right ideas into their heads, but it just didn't happen.

"On Saturday all the good work of the first half was undone in the second. Andy Watkins had been doing great movement and we were getting good balls into Barry Hayles, and we were putting good crosses into the box, but it just didn't happen in the second half. 

To be honest, I think we were fortunate to get a point.  "The way we conceded that second goal was pure pub football.  The boys were just not switched on.  Salisbury took a short corner and the boy was free to run in and shoot in loads of space."

UPCOMING FIXTURES (both League, 3 pm):  Sat Feb 18, Dover Athletic away;  Sat Feb 25, Eastleigh away.

SUNDAY INDEPENDENT:  Yesterday's Truro City column attached.  Incidentally, Mark Woolcock does NOT have the new title of "lease secretary," as the Indy suggested yesterday.   Goodness only knows how that happened, but as you will see from the attached (second paragraph) it definitely went out from here as "at least!"
