TRURO City came out comfortable 0-2 away winners at Blackfield & Langley thanks to a brace from striker Tyler Harvey, writes Cameron Weldon.

Harvey scored his eighth and ninth goals of the seasons since his return from National League South side Bath City in October, gifted Paul Wotton’s men the win in a very wet Hampshire.

Playing for the third time against the Watersiders in just over three weeks after two previous FA Trophy ties, City looked to build on last weekend's 2-1 win over Hartley Wintney and keep up with the leading pack of Tiverton Town and Chesham United.

After a rather slow opening half an hour that saw very little chances for either side, it did see a number of yellow cards. Blackfield had three men put in the book before the game burst into life on 35 minutes. Tyler Harvey beat his man and drove into the box before being taken out taken out after a clever change of speed.

A penalty was given and the hosts were reduced to ten men after the referee spoke with his linesman on the far side. Harvey stepped up and did what he always does and opened the scoring.

Going into the second period Truro started the way they finished the first – in complete control. Harvey saw a snap shot from the edge of the area pushed away while midfielder Will Dean tried his luck from distance which nearly caught the keeper off guard, as his effort too was saved.

James Hamon who hardly a thing to do all afternoon made a good defensive punch to clear his lines before Truro went up the other end and got their deserved second with ten minutes to play.

Big centre half Harlain Mbayo sent a long ball forward that Plymouth Argyle loanee Luke Jephcott managed to take down well. He tried to shoot himself but slipped but he instinctively found Harvey who fired low into the bottom corner for his second and City’s second.

There were opportunities for Truro to find a third. Substitute Alex Battle, who came on for the injured Harrison Davis at half time, fired an effort just wide of the target at the back post after being picked out by Harvey while Mbayo had the ball in the back of the net after being left unmarked but his goal was ruled out for offside.

Truro saw the game out with ease and picked up another three points on the road. They have a week to recover before getting back on the bus to Beaconsfield Town in London on Saturday afternoon.

Truro: Hamon, Davis (Battle 45), Dickson (Tucker 90), Palmer, Mbayo, Richards (c), Booth (Garside 55), Dean, Thompson, Jephcott, Harvey. Subs (unused): L Rooney, Yetton.
