Truro boss Lee Hodges praised keeper Tom McHale after he played in the win over Whitehawk despite being in a road accident on the way to the game.

The incident happened as McHale was driving to Treyew Road with team-mates Stuart Yetton and Ben Adelsbury.

"For anyone who's involved in a crash, it kind of makes you nervy and upsets you a little bit," Hodges told BBC Radio Cornwall.

"He wanted to play so we stuck with him and he's done a fantastic job for us."

Truro won the game 4-2 to move five points clear of the National League South relegation zone with six games to play.

McHale was only recalled from a loan at Southern League Premier side Weymouth last week.

"He has done well to play," added Hodges. "Driving here he was in quite a big accident with a motorbike.

"He was unscathed - everyone was okay."
