City Alerts - Lee's view

LEE'S VERDICT on Truro City 0 Welling United 3:

 "We were flat and it's difficult to put your finger on exactly why. Playing against a top-of-the-league side, you would have expected that everyone would have been excited and given it a right go.

Obviously, it wasn't helped by the fact that we had to change everything around just ten minutes before the start when I had to take myself out of the side.

"JORDAN COPP made a very good debut. He's 19 and got released by Plymouth Argyle in January. He joined Frome, but he's been training with us for a few weeks. He's come in and played ever so well for us; he's set a high standard and obviously we hope he can maintain that now.

"I'd like to say a very big thank-you to MARK BRENT and all the volunteer helpers who did their stuff on the ground to make sure the game could go ahead after so much rain. That was a fantastic achievement all round and we're ever so grateful to them."

INJURY UPDATES: MARTIN WATTS (knee): "I've no fresh information on him at the moment, but we're hoping that it was just precautionary and that he will be available for Friday." LEE himself:

"I suffered a calf strain in the match at Sutton and haven't trained since. I was hoping that the pain killers would have done the trick, but it got steadily worse in the warm-up so I had to pull out."

Goalkeeper PAUL HIDER was de-registered to facilitate Copp's signing under the terms of the continuing transfer embargo.
