Truro City: Steve Tully pleased despite late loss at Biggleswade

Truro City vs Biggleswade
Truro City have lost their last three Southern Premier League matches

Truro City boss Steve Tully says he is pleased with how his side played, despite their dramatic late 3-2 loss at Biggleswade Town.

After dominating for long periods, City found themselves 2-0 down with four minutes to go before Matt Wright and Craig Duff scored to make it 2-2.

But a lapse from a free-kick in the final seconds allowed Loick Pires to hit the winner for Biggleswade.

"We played some really good football," Tully told BBC Radio Cornwall.

"For 70 minutes it was the best football we'd played under myself and Wayne Carlisle.

"Yes, we conceded two soft goals, but apart from that they were a different class and deserved to get something out of the game.

"We must have had 20 clear-cut chances and at 2-0 down we thought it wasn't going to be our day.

"But they kept going and going, and to get one back with four minutes to go and go straight up and score again you think at least we'd got something out of the game, but we just fell asleep.

"They're hurting as a team, we're hurting as the management, but we've just got to go again on Tuesday.

"I'm glad there's a quick turnaround of games because we can put this one to bed."

The loss sees Truro slip to eighth in the Southern Premier League.
