IT was another three points on the road for Paul Wotton’s Truro City as they came out 2-3 winners over Dorchester Town, writes Cameron Weldon.

Goals from Will Swan, Will Dean put them in control before Sean Wright pulled one back for the hosts. Dan Rooney added a third before Tom Bath got a late goal to make things interesting but City held on for the three points.

Fresh from defeating Met Police 4-0 at home last Saturday the White Tigers travelled to Dorset full of confidence and that confidence showed in the early stages.

With just seven minutes on the clock Truro found the breakthrough. On loan Nottingham Forrest striker Will Swan was beautifully played in by Ryan Law as the striker finished from close range for his third goal in two games.

Law was the provider again this time to Alex Battle, who managed to adjust his body and get a header away which rattled the crossbar.

Chances followed for both Battle and Palmer but both were denied before skipper Jamie Richards got on the end of a Ryan Dickson cross but could beat the keeper.

It didn’t take City long to double their going into the second half. Niall Thompson knocked a ball down to Will Dean who’s stunning effort flew into the top corner leaving the keeper absolutely no chance.

Leigh Robinson’s Dorchester struggled to break Truro down but did pull one back midway through the second half. Sean Wright’s powerful shot proved too strong for James Hamon as they clawed themselves back into the encounter.

Truro who had dominated the game soon had their two goal cushion back. Niall Thompson again the provider as the winger fizzed a ball across to the feet of Dan Rooney and the midfielder simply couldn’t miss, scoring his second goal of the campaign.

Former Tiverton striker Tom Bath latched onto a rare defensive Truro mistake to make it 2-3 as the home started to believe they could pull off a comeback.

James Hamon then superbly stopped that said comeback with a stunning stop to prevent Bath getting his second.

Up the end City had a hatful of chances to wrap it up but failed to take them. Substitute Harrison Davis struck the post before both Rooney and Swan had chances.

Those missed opportunities didn’t come back to haunt them as City managed to hold on to claim all three points.

With Tiverton losing at home to Poole, Truro now sit top of the Southern League table two points clear with a game in hand.

Truro are next in action on Tuesday as they welcome to Merthyr Town to Treyew Road.

Truro: Hamon, Thompson, Law, Mbayo (Gafaiti 80), Palmer, Richards (C), Dean, Garside (Rooney 58), Dickson, Battle (Davis 79), Swan.
