Truro City manager Steve Tully says his side have the knack of winning games after beating Dorchester Town 2-1 to go fourth in the Southern Premier League.

Second half goals from substitutes Les Afful and Shane Krac put City ahead before Matt Oldring pulled one back.

Truro have won their last three games and lost just once in the league since the start of December.

"We've got a knack of winning games by hook or by crook, it doesn't matter what's put in front of us," Tully said.

"They came with a game plan and in the first half it really caused us some problems.

"But in the second half we had enough on the bench with the changes we made and Les Afful and Shane Krac gave us a bit of impetus," Tully told BBC Radio Cornwall.

The match, which was a first in charge for new Dorchester boss Mark Jermyn, marked the start of a run of four league matches against struggling sides for Truro.

They face all of the bottom three - Dorchester, Burnham and Banbury United - as well as mid-table Chippenham Town.

"We were disappointed with conceding a goal and we were hanging on at the end," Tully added.

"I think a fair reflection would have been a draw, but we're in a position at the moment that every win is vital if we want to push on and get in the play-offs or even win the league.

"We've got to make sure we're doing the right things and keep grinding out the results."
