Truro City target mid-table spot after victory over Arlesey Town (WMNews)
TRURO CITY will bid to build on Saturday’s 2-0 Southern League Premier Division win over Arlesey Town at Treyew Road when they travel to 15th-placed Burnham on Tuesday.
Delighted City boss Steve Massey said: “We were two goals up in ten minutes and could have been four or five ahead at half time.
“Ollie Chenoweth made one good save from Barry Hayles midway through the first half and I think they also missed a one-on-one chance but apart from that it was all about us, really.
“The pitch dried out nicely and we played our football and when we can play our football we look a very good side.”
Truro top scorer Liam Eddy took his tally for the campaign to ten goals with City’s sixth-minute opener and former Exeter City striker Ben Watson doubled the home side’s advantage four minutes later to get the Tigers off to a roaring start.
With 14 matches left Massey – whose side are 19th in the Premier league standings – said: “We are really looking forward to going to Burnham and building on the win. You are never completely comfortable at 2-0 and we had plenty of opportunities to get a third which would have seen us home.
“We have two tough away games this week with St Albans on Saturday coming up so it is a great way to start with a home win over a side who started the day in tenth place.”
Arlesey’s defeat saw them slip a place to 11th and that is the area that Massey is now setting as his team’s goal for the campaign. He said: “Saturday was a big match for us, an important one to win and you could feel the confidence in the camp after the game. We need to build on that now because I know the team are more than capable of a top-half finish. That has to be the target.”
