Truro City got their first win of the season as they won 2-1 at Paulton Rovers in the Southern Premier League.

Barry Hayles gave Truro a 34th minute lead before Nick McCoody equalised from the penalty spot five minutes later.

But Hayles got a second right on half-time to cap off a frenetic end to the first half.

City had defender Shane White sent off in the fourth minute of stoppage time for a professional foul just outside the box but City held on for the win.

The victory moves them up to 15th in the table after Saturday's 3-0 loss to Chesham.
