Truro City suffer disappointing away defeat after conceding 'soft' goal (Rhod Mitchell, West Briton)

Biggleswade Town 2 Truro City 1
City were unable to make it three Calor League premier division wins in a row after making the long trip to Biggleswade’s Langford Road on Tuesday evening.
But they really should have taken something from the match against The Waders, who themselves have now won three matches on the bounce.
The game began badly for City when they went 1-0 down after nine minutes, with home skipper Craig Daniell converting a left wing cross.
But a superb strike by the impressive Cody Cooke less than two minutes later got City back on level terms and he was then unlucky with a header which hit the post midway through the half.
However, calamity struck at the other end almost immediately when Lee Allinson scored direct from a corner to give the home side what proved to be the winning goal.
In the second half, City pressed hard for an equaliser, creating several good chances but were unable to take any of them, leaving them empty handed from the 600-mile return trip.
Assistant manager Wayne Carlisle said: “It was disappointing not to take anything from the game.
“We had the opportunities and the work ethic was good, but we gave them a soft goal which in the end proved decisive.”
The result leaves City still 17th in the table ahead of their final away game of the season at Weymouth on Easter Monday.
City: Fisher; Parcell, Pugh, Ash, Daw; Afful, Green, White, Slateford; Cooke, Watson. Subs (all used): Eddy, Copp, Tully.
Goals: Daniell (9) 1-0, Cooke (10) 1-1, Allinson (24) 1-2.
City man of the match: Arran Pugh.
