Truro City eye window in weather as they strive to play again (Western Morning News)

Weather permitting, Truro City return to Southern League Premier Division action after more than two weeks without a game when they take on Stourbridge at Treyew Road on Saturday.

The Glassmen moved into the play-off places when they came from behind to beat struggling Bedford Town 2-1 on Tuesday, in a game watched by City boss Steve Massey.

Stourbridge are the league’s second top scorers with 61 goals, led by Sean Geddes with 17 and Ryan Rowe with 12.

Massey says the visitors will pose a good test for City’s much improved defence, who have kept three clean sheets in their last four games.

He said: “Stourbridge are like many teams in this league, very good going forward.

“They have a lot of pace and like to get balls into the box and it will be a good test to see how far we have come defensively.”

Massey desperately wants the bad weather to relent to allow the game to go ahead after the seemingly non-stop rain forced the postponements of the holiday games against Weymouth (home) and Burnham(away).

He hopes to be able to choose from a full strength squad for the game and has also been boosted by the fact that skipper Jake Ash, who has not played since the start of September because of a pelvic injury, is back running.
