City fell to a crushing 4-0 defeat against Slough Town at Arbour Park in the National League South last Tuesday .

First-half strikes from Jamie Ogbonna, Mickel Platt and an own goal from Jamie Pardington gave the hosts a commanding lead at the break.

Jeanmal Prosper added a fourth in the second half, succumbing Truro to a heavy midweek defeat on the road.

After what was a slow start to the game, where Will Dean came closest to scoring when he forced the home keeper into a good stop, it was Slough who opened the scoring 19 minutes in.

A poor kickout from Pardington found its way to Ogbonna who slotted into the open goal to give his side the lead.

It was 2-0 eight minutes later. Platt got away from two City defenders and then drilled a low shot into the bottom corner from the edge of the box.

Pardington then did well to parry away an attempt before it was quickly 3-0.

A cross from the right took a big deflection off Sam Sanders and then Pardington before finding its way into the net.

Moments later the City shot-stopper made a cracking stop, tipping a strike from Don Hutchinson over the bar as the first half came to a close.

Paul Wotton made three changes at the break introducing Obed Yeboah, Matt Buse and James Melhado.

Yeboah was involved immediately as he turned in the box and got his shot away, but it was knocked over the bar by the keeper.

Up the other end, the Rebels again looked dangerous. Ben Adelsbury was forced into a last-ditched tackle to prevent what looked like a certain goal.

Truro were better in the second period but failed to muster anything remotely concerning for the home defence.

Slough made it 4-0 with 15 minutes to play, the least they deserved. Prosper got away from his marker at the near post following a corner, squeezing the ball past Pardington.

It should have been five late on. Josh Jackman was found at the back post, and he saw

Truro did have a chance themselves for a late consolation. Dan Rooney’s low attempt was blocked and fell to the path of Ryan Law who shot and hit the crossbar.

Following an 8am pitch inspection, last Saturday’s National League South fixture against Dartford was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch at Bolitho Park.

Information on the new date will be available in due course.
