Truro boss Hodges happy with 'point gained' at Boreham Wood

Truro City

Truro player-coach Lee Hodges was satisfied with the goalless draw at Boreham Wood despite seeing his side waste a late penalty.

Marcus Martin had his spot-kick saved as they missed out on three points.

"We're really pleased to get something from the game against a really good Boreham Wood team.

"We've played them twice and kept two clean sheets against them, I'd probably say it was a point gained," Hodges told BBC Radio Cornwall.

Truro were given a boost when skipper Jake Ash shrugged off an injury to line-up alongside Hodges in defence.

The latter praised keeper Luke McCormick for "two fantastic saves" and refused to criticise Martin for his failure to convert their late opportunity.

"Marcus has hit the target and you have to give credit to their keeper, it's a good point on the road considering we left at 5 o'clock in the morning.

"Probably a draw was the correct result but it would've been nice to take all three points," he added.
