Truro City 'sluggish' in 2-1 loss at Farnborough

Truro City

Truro City boss Lee Hodges admits that his side 'didn't show up' after their 2-1 Blue Square Bet South defeat at lowly Farnborough.

Phillips Page opened the scoring for Farnborough after just six minutes, doubling the lead with 17 minutes left.

Stewart Yetton got one back with 10 minutes left, but it was not enough to leave City stuck in mid-table, in 12th.

"We just didn't show up really," Hodges told BBC Radio Cornwall.

"We were still on the coach in the first 20 minutes. We looked sloppy and deservedly went a goal down and it could have been one or two more at that stage.

"We created one or two better chances, had one or two penalty appeals turned down and then we got done by a sucker punch."

Coming on the back of the elation of their midweek FA Trophy first round replay victory over Gloucester City, Hodges admits: "I don't think we deserved anything.

"It was just one of those sluggish performances. We looked tired and jaded after Tuesday night."
