TRURO City continued their impressive start to the season with a 0-3 away win at Yate Town in the Southern League Premier South, writes Cameron Weldon.

Goals from Tyler Harvey, Niall Thompson and Louis Rooney secured the White Tigers second 0-3 in a week. Truro are now up to third in the league table level on points with second-placed Poole Town, who they welcome to Treyew Road later this month, and one point behind leaders Tiverton Town.

After a 3-0 win over Hayes and Yeading last weekend, City breezed past Barnstaple 2-5 in the cup meaning they headed to Gloucestershire in fine spirits.

After a rather slow start which saw Harlain Mbayo gift the hosts a chance inside the opening 45 seconds which they couldn’t take, City did get the breakthrough against the run of play.

Fresh from two goals on his return last weekend, Tyler Harvey was in the goals again as he headed home an inviting Will Dean corner to put Paul Wotton’s men in front on 18 minutes.

James Hamon was forced to push a goal ward effort onto the post as Yate looked for a leveller. Up the other end Harvey again latched onto a Dean cross but this couldn’t beat Forster in the Yate net.

Truro did double their lead in the dying moments of the first half. Mbayo played a ball into Niall Thompson who beautifully turned his man and slotted into the far corner to give City some breathing space.

Going into the second half, James Hamon saw a number of headers go over his bar as the home side tried to pull one back to no avail. Austen Booth charged through the hosts backline before being well stopped at the pivotal moment.

Ryan Law saw a huge chance to make it three go begging as the on loan Plymouth Argyle full back found himself unmarked in the box but he couldn’t keep his shot down.

Truro didn’t get disheartened and did get their deserved third with seven minutes left to play. Dean rattled the bar with a curling effort with the rebound falling to Louis Rooney who cooly finished to wrap up another three points for the White Tigers.

They have a week to rest and recover before they hit the road again as they travel to Harrow Borough.

Truro: Hamon, Davis, Law, Gafaiti, Mbayo, Richards (c), Dean, Booth, Jephcott (Garside 58), Harvey (Battle 84), Thompson (Rooney 70).
