Truro City hoping to return to home action for the first time in over a month on Saturday...

TRURO City are keeping their fingers crossed that Saturday will see their first home game in over a month as they look to maintain their challenge at the top of the Vanarama National League South table.

The wet winter weather has put pay to their last two scheduled home matches, but manager, Lee Hodges, is looking forward to Saturday’s clash with Wealdstone going ahead.

“It will be nice to be back at Treyew Road in front of our own fans,” he told us. “We’ll be looking to build on last weekend’s hard-earned victory at Bognor and keep ourselves in the mix at the top.

“We know that Wealdstone will provide us with a tough test; they beat us at their place earlier in the season and are currently on a run of four straight wins.

“They’ll be well-organised and prepared to roll their sleeves up and battle for everything. That said, we have set some high standards this season and if we can reach these, it will give us every chance of getting the result that we all crave.

“It’s about staying focussed on the task in hand and ensuring that we continue to do the right things in order to add to our points tally.”

The Cornish outfit go into the game in sixth place in the table, seven points off the top but with games in hand on all but one of the clubs above them.
