Truro City manager Lee Hodges says his side must get over their poor results at home in National League South.

The White Tigers, who have lost 5-0 to Dartford and 3-0 to Hampton and Richmond in their last two games at Treyew Road, host Eastbourne Borough on Saturday.

"What we can't do is start feeling story for ourselves," Hodges said.

"We have to pick ourselves up and I'm going to select a team that will hopefully battle and compete."

City are 17th in the division, but have been boosted by the news that Plymouth Argyle youngster Louis Rooney has extended his loan spell until January.

"I'm really chuffed to bits that Argyle have allowed us to carry on and have Rooney on loan," Hodges told BBC Radio Cornwall.

"He was disappointed last week as we didn't get the ball to him enough, but he's still happy to stay and he wants to play as high as he can.

"Hopefully he'll do the business for us and then get back to Argyle."
