Whitehawk 0 Truro City 0

City bounced back from the disappointment of last week's FA Cup exit at Margate, as they turned in a terrific performance at high-flying Brighton-based Whitehawk to earn their fifth away National League South draw of the season.
And City boss Steve Tully was disappointed they had not taken all three points from the Enclosed Ground against the third-placed home side.
"It was a great point but we are disappointed we did not take all three," he said.

"We had four good chances and if we had taken one of those it would have been a different game.
"But it was important we had a reaction after last week and showed it was just a blip. Our players are getting, fitter and better every week and we have to make sure we keep improving."
Tom McHale came in for his first appearance of the season in goal in place of the injured Martin Rice, and had an excellent game, while Jamie Reid returned up front and there was a place on the bench for new signing Ollie Knowles.
The home side, who went into the game unbeaten in 12, had plenty of possession in the first half but City's defence was outstanding with the midfield working hard as did Reid and Duff up front.

After the break Cody Cooke forced out a good save out of Ross in the home goal and then had shot cleared off the line as City threatened a winner.
But in the end it was honours even and City now have two home games in a row as they bid to move into a comfortable mid-table position
