Truro City boss Lee Hodges promises positive attitude

Truro City

Truro City manager Lee Hodges says his side will continue to play in a positive way when they make their debut in the Blue Square Bet South.

The White Tigers, who were promoted from the Southern Premier last season travel to Chelmsford City on Saturday.

"We're not a team who'll sit back and hopefully nick a draw," he told BBC Radio Cornwall.

"I like to go and win games, and that's what we did all last season and it'll be no different."

But Hodges doubts that City will repeat last year's promotion - the club's fifth in six seasons which has seen them rise from regional football to the sixth tier of the English game.

"Personally mid-table would be fantastic for us," the former Plymouth Argyle and Torquay United player said.

"We're not setting our sights on being right up there, we're going to just take our time."

And he thinks his squad may need a bit of time to adjust to the higher level.

"There's a lot of teams that the club have never come up against," he added.

"I'm sure that they'll be a little bit bigger, a little bit stronger, a little bit more organised and we've got to make sure we adapt very quickly to it or we could come unstuck in a lot of games."
