LEE'S REFLECTIONS on Salisbury City   4   Truro City   3:  "It just seemed to sum up our season, really.  I felt we got a lot of pride back after our performance against Billericay.  It was obviously a sickener to lose in stoppage time away to a top team for the second time in 11 days.  I've looked at that goal on the video to see what we could have done differently, but we had enough players behind the ball, everyone was getting back, Ben's got to the ball first, but then their boy scores from a difficult angle, and there's just not a lot you can do about that.

"We could perhaps have taken a short corner to play out time and protect the point, but we had a chance of getting all three points and we needed them desperately.  It didn't happen, but I'm really proud of the boys.  It was totally different from Billericay.  Now we must perform at Sutton, who surprisingly are second from bottom.  We seem to struggle against these teams, so we have to change that tomorrow.   In a strange way, I will actually enjoy being on the sidelines because it means I should be able to manage the side better.  Looking back, I see I've started 18 games this season, and I never expected to be starting more than around five by now!"
