Truro vs Chesham United preview Saturday 9th November KO 15:00This Saturday the 1st team undertake the longest away trip of the season to Truro City. Truro acquitted themselves very well at The Meadow in September, keeping Chesham as quiet as any visiting team has managed for much of the first half. They then followed up a 44th minute wonder strike by coolly taking advantage of a second half defensive lapse to get back from 3-1 to to 3-2, ensuring some chewed Chesham finger nails until United ran out eventual 4-2 winners in a very entertaining game.
The casual observer might be forgiven for looking at City's home record of 2 draws and 5 losses from 8 games at Treyew Road and no clean sheets in any league game, and assuming that the return fixture will be a foregone conclusion for Chesham. That would be unwise. There have been signs lately that Truro's policy of blending youth, experience and local talent is starting to pay off and with 3 wins in the last 4 games, Tigers fans are making positive noises re their team's progress.
Chesham Utd Manager Andy Leese comments:
"There are no easy games in this level of football as we found out with this week's fixtures. It has been another challenging run of games with different styles employed by teams we have played, but we have kept our run going and remained in the FA Trophy and at the top of the League.
Truro will be another test. When they have their full squad available they have the quality to challenge the top 5. We have a quiet confidence about us that comes with winning, and we know how to get results at the moment. The players are ready for the mini tour of coastal resorts next week, with an interesting game against MKDons sandwiched in the middle. They deserve huge credit for where we are, and the players not making the starting X1 have been top class coming in and out of games. We will need to make changes this week to keep the energy levels high, and to keep the quality in our game. Hopefully we will have some support at Truro to help keep this fantastic run going."
