Marcus Martin praises Truro City squad after Dover win

Truro City

Truro City's Marcus Martin has praised the strength of the squad after the 1-0 win over Dover at Treyew Road.

The midfielder's long-range goal after an hour saw the White Tigers go second in Blue Square Bet South with three wins from three games.

He also praised stand-in strikers Danny Clay and Stewart Yetton, after injuries to Barry Hayles and Andy Watkins.

"They could easily set a place for themselves in the team at some stage," Martin told BBC Radio Cornwall.

"We had to change formation slightly, we used the formation that worked well away to Salisbury last season," he added.

"We knew that Dover passed well, and that was a formation that would negate their passing game and it seemed to work."

Martin also praised his back four, which have conceded just one goal in three matches after a shaky pre-season and stopped a Dover side that had won their first two games 4-0.

"In pre-season we conceded goals but now we've started the business in the league our back four is as solid as ever," he said.
