Truro City boss Lee Hodges thanks players for 'unbelievable' result
Truro City manager Lee Hodges labelled his side’s 2-0 win over Weston Super Mare on Bank Holiday Monday as an ‘unbelievable’ performance as the club travelled to the game with just 13 players.
Andy Watkins was also out with a grion injury, but despite the absentees, Truro won the match thanks to goals from Kieffer Moore and Stewart Yetton.
“I can't thank the players and the staff enough, said Hodges after the game.
“It was very much bare bones stuff, with a squad of just 13 and several players out injured, and the second hard game in just three days, again in poor conditions. Yet the boys just kept their really good form going and picked up their first win and clean sheet.
"It was no more than they deserved and really pleasing because they had done enough in the previous three games to earn more than just two points.
"Once again, it was a case of really hard work from a tight little squad, but they put all the off-the-field stuff to one side and just worked so hard.
"They gave absolutely everything they've got for the cause, and I'm so proud of them. They're doing everything right at the moment, and the young lads who have come in are stepping right up to the mark. It was outstanding.
"We settled into the game very quickly and we seemed to cause Weston more problems than they did for us. We played some lovely stuff; we broke very quickly in good areas, showing that
the best form of defence is attack. Our defenders did well and our strikers delivered once again. Kieffer got his second in two games and Yetsi (Stewart Yetton) got his first of the
season to seal it."
