Truro lose 2-1.

Bit of a dour first half with Hampton scoring early,but then being unable to break down a very solid Truro backline that sat deep, and City offering little beyond long balls in the rough direction of Rocky Neal and Tyler Harvey. Ollie Bray (on for Neal at half time) scored with his first touch as a Truro player after being set up by Connor Riley-Lowe who is class act, but what is he doing playing right wing back?Looks a bit awkward and is constantly trying to get onto his stronger left foot. Bray injected a bit of thrust and dynamism into their play, I was quite impressed by him. He also had the effect of shocking Harvey into action a bit, either side of the Hampton straight red, he headed a ball onto the roof of the net and also drew a fine save from the keeper with another close range header. He is a player that can veer from uninterested to a nuisance, suddenly he was showing for every ball and chasing lost causes.  Hampton continued to try and batter their way through the middle, with Ben Seymour particularly ineffective as Ed Palmer and co bottled him up. Their winner came when the finally fashioned a move down the right in the 80th minute, which resulted in a neat headed finish for the winner.

No doubt Paul Wotton will say in his post match comments that Truro deserved something from the game (he usually does), on this occasion I agree with him. The harsh fact is though that this is a 3rd straight defeat, something they need to arrest pretty quickly starting with the home/away/who knows game against struggling Taunton on Tuesday. 

Oh, and on the subject of the pitch (the current hot topic for Truro) like a bowling green at Hampton & Richmond FC. Bit of mud in both 6 yard boxes, but otherwise superb for February.

My main issue with Truro under PW is how we go on runs of excellent form followed by runs of terrible form.

Truro are very well organised, resilient and work hard, but do look one dimensional going forward with little coming from wide areas. For whatever reason, Danny Sullivan seems to have slipped down the pecking order, he has been the player in the past that has offered a bit of imagination and flair going forward. In the formation that Wotton always goes with, the wing backs are vital. As I said before, Riley-Lowe looks like a square peg in a round hole on the right and (in my opinion) Ryan Law was pretty average on the left. Doesn't look the player he was a few seasons ago.

Truro are in a league now with clubs that employ scouts and analysts (you can also find highlights reels of them all), perhaps they just get worked out.
