Truro City boss Lee Hodges unhappy with lack of goals

Truro City boss Lee Hodges has criticised his side's desire to get on the end of chances after their 3-1 loss at Eastleigh in Blue Square Bet South.

Bradley Bubb gave Eastleigh a 16th-minute lead, which was doubled by Jamie Brown 11 minutes later.

Jake Ash got one back after 64 minutes before Bubb scored a third late on.

"Too often there were decent deliveries into the box but no-one wanted to really commit to getting on the end of it," Hodges told BBC Radio Cornwall.

"We gave away two sloppy goals and went in 2-0 down and I think we didn't deserve that.

"But if you don't stop people crossing the ball, if you don't close people down and you let people have free headers then you're going to concede," Hodges said.

"But in the second half I can't fault them.

"We just played in their half for 45 minutes, crosses are going in the box and there was two or three that you just wanted people to tap it into an empty net.

"We're just not dying to get onto the end of things to give yourself a goal."

Truro have taken just one point from their last three games and had slipped 15th place in the Blue Square Bet South, nine points off the relegation zone.
