Truro City hit back to end nine game winless run

City came from behind to end their five match losing run and earn their first win in ten games.

After Tom Collins had given the home side an early lead, goals by Andy Watkins before half time and a late effort from top scorer Kieffer Moore earned City what was only their sixth Blue Square Bet South victory of the season as they at last reached double figures after being stuck on nine points.

The win was a massive tonic for the White Tigers whose play in recent weeks has probably not given them their just deserts.
Manager Lee Hodges fielded the same starting line up that began at Dover Athletic last week for the game, which was played at Woking's Kingfield Stadium.

But the match began badly for City when Collins, who has returned to the club on a month's loan from Blue Square Bet Premier side Stockport County, put the home side ahead.

But eight minutes before the interval Watkins, with his seventh goal of the season, got City back on level terms.

And nine minutes from time Moore grabbed a priceless winner for City whose four of their next five games are at home, starting with next Saturday's visit of Staines Town.

City: Hider; Hall, Ash, Gerring, Watts; Cooke, Broad (Williams 60), Martin, Afful; Moore, Watkins (Hayles 90).
Subs (Not used), Hodges, Wright.
