Truro City: We must improve home form after Hampton loss - Lee Hodges

Truro City's only win at home in the league this season came against Hungerford Town on 6 September

Truro City manager Lee Hodges says his side must improve their home form after a 3-0 loss to Hampton and Richmond in National League South.

City have won just once at Treyew Road this season and lost 5-0 at home to Dartford the week before.

"I look at the group and we need to be picking up more points," Hodges said.

"When you're in the rut like we are at the moment every game becomes difficult and we are the only ones who can turn it around as a group."

The loss leaves Truro 17th in National League South, six points off the relegation places.

"The pluses for me were I can't fault the boys effort," Hodges told BBC Radio Cornwall.

"Last week I felt we went through the motions and allowed them to dictate.

"I knew they'd have more possession than us, because they're good players and I was happy with the shape, where it went wrong was our own individual errors.

"We can't feel sorry for ourselves, I can't keep saying to the boys 'unlucky', we're at home, I want to make this a fortress, I want to make this a horrible place to be, and at the moment it's becoming a bit too nice for teams."
