Super subs help Truro to much-needed victory by Lee Hall, West Briton

Banbury United 1, Truro City 2

Goals from substitutes Neil Slateford and Liam Eddy eased the pressure on manager Steve Massey as Truro City fought from behind to claim a much-needed Southern League victory at the Spencer Stadium on Saturday.

After five straight defeats in all competitions, City looked to be heading for number six, until the introduction of Slateford and Eddy.

Kynan Isaac had given Banbury a 57th minute lead when he latched on to a long ball forward before unleashing a volley past City goalkeeper Ollie Chenoweth.

But after a good spell of pressure from the visitors, City deservedly drew level through substitute Slateford in the 78th minute.

And it got even better for Truro when, with the game in injury time, Eddy produced a brilliant solo effort to snatch the points for Massey’s men.

Att: 350.
