Truro City boss Steve Tully has said he will field an under-strength team for their final Southern Premier League game at Histon.

The Cornish side will finish third in the division and face a home play-off semi-final against either Hungerford Town or St Neots Town.

"We're going to rest a few players - I think it's only right," Tully told BBC Radio Cornwall.

"It's a long way to go for a one-off game which means nothing."

Goalkeeper Tom Hales has had an injection in his knee so will be rested, while defender Jake Ash is one of several regulars who are unlikely to feature.

The Cornish side have won 14 of their last 19 league games and are in the middle of a nine-match unbeaten run.

"We've finished third in the league and that can't change so it's a chance for the younger players and it'll be a good step up for them," added Tully.

"We are planning for the play-offs, there's no doubt about that - we know the team (for the play-offs), we know how we're going to set up, it's just a matter of who we're going to play."

Tully hinted that he may pick himself to play for the first time in three weeks.

"Myself and Baz (Barry Hayles) will probably bring the age of our team up," he said.

"The biggest thing for us is to make sure we have a fully-fit squad to choose from for the play-offs."
