Truro City have been challenged to maintain their good form ahead of the Southern League Premier play-offs by coach Wayne Carlisle.

The White Tigers are eight points clear in third place with five games to play after back-to-back wins over Easter.

"We've got to just to make sure we hit the play-offs with a bit of momentum," Carlisle told BBC Radio Cornwall.

"If we keep winning our games until the play-offs then we go in there off the back of a good streak of form."

Truro won 4-0 at Redditch United on Saturday before a 2-0 victory over rivals Weymouth 48 hours later.

A top-three finish would secure Truro a home tie in the play-offs against a side below them in the table.

"That's the objective, to make sure we get that home tie and, ultimately, if we get to the play-off final we get that home tie in the play-off final," Carlisle added.

"If you'd said to me at the start of the season that we'd be in this position I'd have said 'so we should be', we've got good players, we've got good supporters and a good set up at the club. A club like this should be where we are."
