Tiverton Town 1 v Truro City 2

Truro City came from behind to book their place in the second round of the Red Insure Cup at Tiverton Town on Tuesday night.
Dan Green (33) and Barry Hayles (48) grabbed the goals for City, who provided the perfect response after Saturday’s 4-1 defeat at home to Cirencester Town.

An entertaining first half didn’t start well for Steve Tully’s men, who fell behind after 12 minutes when Tiverton’s Jimmy Hinds flicked home Matt Bye’s cross.
The home side continued to create openings and Kyle Moore, who had earlier tipped Owen Howe’s powerful drive over the bar, was relieved to see another Howe effort deflected over the bar by defender Shane White.
But after Truro’s best spell in the game they drew level in the 33rd minute through Green. After his initial shot was blocked, the midfielder followed up to drive the ball home from close range.
And it was Green who came to Truro’s rescue before half-time when he cleared off the line from the lively Howe.

In contrast to the first half, Tully couldn’t have asked for a better start after the break when Hayles struck in the 48th minute to put City 2-1 in front. It was a smart finish from the experienced front man who fired across Tiverton goalkeeper Chris Wright.
Tiverton looked for an immediate response and they almost got it when Jamie Mudge went for goal only for Moore to produce a fine one-handed save.
The home side continued to put pressure on the City goal and Howe squandered another opportunity when he fired narrowly over the bar.
At the other end Wright had to be alert to keep Isaac Vassell at bay as City looked for a third goal that would surely settle the tie.
And after Vassell saw another effort go narrowly wide Tiverton should have been level with the best chance of the night when Jimmy Hinds somehow failed to find the target with an open goal at his mercy.
Green had a chance to wrap it up in injury time when he came within inches of scoring, but just moments later the final whistle blew as City enjoyed a return to winning ways in Devon.
