Lee Hodges boosted by Truro form ahead of Salisbury clash

Truro City

Truro City boss Lee Hodges says his side have done enough to win both of their Blue Square Bet South games this season, despite only taking a point.

City conceded a late equaliser to draw 3-3 with Havant & Waterlooville on Tuesday after an opening-day defeat at Billericay Town.

They host Salisbury City, who are the only team in the league with a perfect record, on Saturday.

"I think the boys have started off the season really well," Hodges said.

"I think we should be on six points right now but we're stuck on one.

"The performances and the level from each individual is more than I could have wished for at the start of the season and results haven't gone our way.

"But at the end of the day results are what make you climb the league and we haven't clung on at the right times to get what we deserve," he told BBC Radio Cornwall.

Ben Adelsbury will not feature against his former club, but Andy Watkins will play after returning from injury on Tuesday.

Hodges will name himself in the squad in order to bring it up to 16 players.

Salisbury chairman William Harrison-Allan is effectively paying the Truro players' wages.

Harrison-Allan, through one of his companies, is bidding to buy Treyew Road's ground in a deal with current chairman Kevin Heaney.

"They're the only team in the league that have picked up maximum points so far and it shows you it's going to be a competitive league," Hodges said.

"They've got a few players in and I'm sure they'll be very strong," he added.
