"We deserved a point," says Truro City boss Lee Hodges
Truro City manager Lee Hodges said his side deserved at least a point from their opening match of the Conference South season on Saturday, despite them falling to a 2-1 defeat.
A goal from Sam Lechmere in the 89th minute cost Truro City the match. However, Lee Hodges was 'really pleased' with his side's performance.
"The boys performed and the result was desperately disappointing," he said. "We deserved at least a point and really should have won; we created so many excellent chances. It was a cagy game to start with, but we grew in confidence and did ever so well in such stifling conditions. It was really hot, with the temperature well into the 80s, and we were sweating just watching it from the shade.
"We changed our shape for the second half to make it a bit more positive. Again, we dominated the game but could not take our chances. Keiffer Moore could have had a hat-trick. He and Les Afful were outstanding up front. I felt really sorry for the boys. To walk away with nothing from that game was a travesty of justice.
"To make matters even worse, Ben Adlesbury's injury came at just the wrong time, in the closing minutes. It took away our momentum. There was a break of around five minutes and then of course
Billericay went and scored at the death."
