City made it 3 wins out of 3 in pre-season after they comfortably dispatched Helston Athletic 3-1 at Kellaway Park, writes Cameron Weldon. 

A second-half brace from Andrew Neal and a strike from a Trialist put Truro in cruise control before Rubin Wilson scored a late consolation goal for the hosts. 

Truro dominated proceedings in Cornwall, and they saw all the opportunities in the opening 45 minutes.

Both James Melhado and 'Trialist B' saw efforts blocked away for corners while Neal had a shot cleared off the line.

'Trialist B' turned on the edge of the box and saw a powerful shot tipped over the bar by Kyle Moore in the Helston goal.

City thought they had broken the deadlock 10 minutes before the break. Neal turned a deflected Melhado shot into the bottom corner, but the linesman was quick to raise his flag.

The White Tigers had the ball in the back of the net again moments later and this one did count. 'Trialist A' was quick to react in the box following a corner and he rifled the ball past the keeper to give his side a deserved half-time lead.

The boss made five changes at the break with Sullivan, Brett, Adelsbury, Palfrey and 'Trialist C' all introduced.

It took the White Tigers just nine minutes into the second half to double their lead. Neal picked up the ball on the edge of the box and fired into the corner leaving the keeper no chance.

Billy Palfrey then hit a shot straight at the Helston shot-stopper.

With 65 minutes on the clock, Dan Rooney picked the pockets of the keeper and was then bundled over leaving the referee with the simple decision of pointing straight to the spot.

Neal dispatched the penalty with ease coolly sending the keeper the wrong way and nonchalantly passing the ball into the bottom corner.

City continued to dominate. Ed Palmer got on the end of a Ryan Brett corner, but his header was punched away.

Neal and Sullivan both saw efforts go wide of the target before the hosts gave their fans something to cheer about late on.

Striker Wilson did well to make space before picking out the bottom corner with a good low strike.
