Lee aims to sign new defenders

Truro City boss Lee Hodges says he needs to strengthen his side's defence if they are to have any chance of staying in the Blue Square Bet South.

City have conceded 52 goals this season and Hodges has called for improvements at the back.

"Going forward we are creating a lot of chances and are dangerous and we look solid in midfield," Hodges said.

"It's just at the back where we need to change things around I feel," he added to BBC Radio Cornwall.

Truro are 18 points from safety at the bottom of Blue Square Bet South with 18 games to go.

City appointed former manager Steve Massey last week as head of football development and Hodges hopes the pair can work together to strengthen the White Tigers' squad.

"Speaking to Steve during the week we're going to try and maybe change one or two personnel.

"Steve's come in here to help the club and to possibly get a few players in when I can't go out and look as we're playing on Saturdays and Tuesday.

"I want him to go out there and find me some talent to bring into the club to take us forward as we're not too far away from competing in the higher echelons of this league.

"There's still a lot of points to play for and it's just about getting a bit of pride and those points on the board."
