Lee Hodges unfazed by Truro City summer defeats

Truro City

Truro City boss Lee Hodges says he is not worried by his side's poor pre-season form.

The White Tigers have failed to win any of their pre-season matches and have suffered defeats to lower-ranked sides Falmouth Town and Tiverton Town.

"Overall, pre-season has gone well and I've been really pleased with the way the boys have been shaping up," Hodges told BBC Radio Cornwall.

His side has one pre-season game left against Hednesford Town on Saturday.

"I've spoken to other managers over the pre-season and they're worried because they've won every game so I haven't got cause for concern at the moment.

"I've got two or three youngsters who I've brought into the squad who've never been close to this level so they've got to get up and running and you have to give them the opportunity," added Hodges.

"Of course you want to win more games than you lose, but at the end of it all you're only playing for fitness and nothing more than that."

Hodges added it was unlikely that he would add to his squad before the start of the season on Saturday, 13 August.

"The way the squad is at the moment I've got 20 or 21 players," he said.

"You can only have 16 in a squad on a Saturday and I don't want too many at the club where they're just sitting down watching the game."
