Truro City manager Steve Tully hailed his side's commitment after their astonishing comeback from 4-0 down to draw 4-4 at Wealdstone.

Goals from Matthew Ball, Jefferson Louis, Matt Harriott and a Aaron Pugh own goal gave Wealdstone a seemingly unassailable lead.

But Issac Vassell pulled one back after 58 minutes and Ryan Brett added a second with nine minutes remaining.

Jake Ash made it 4-3 before Brett got the equaliser with 33 seconds left.

"We're normally seven or eight out of 10, today we were five or six and for 60 minutes Wealdstone played us off the park," Tully told BBC Radio Cornwall.

"But as soon as we scored that first goal their never-say-die commitment all over the pitch was outstanding and they never gave up.

"They kept going until the end and to score with 33 seconds to go, I'm delighted to get something out of the game."

It was the second time in three games that Truro had shared eight goals with a side, after their 4-4 draw at home to Maidenhead United 14 days earlier.

"Today we had the fortune to come back and get into a game, whereas the other week we were 4-2 up and drew 4-4," added Tully.

"We're delighted to keep this run going, if someone had offered me four points out of the last two game I'd have snapped their hands off.

"We'll look at the video because there was a lot of stuff that was wrong, especially the defensive side of it, and we've got to make sure we nail that down."
