Truro City's squad could take a month to adapt to life in the National league South, according to boss Steve Tully.

The White Tigers drew their opening match 1-1 away at Margate but lost 2-1 to Hayes and Yeading in midweek.

City are back in the second tier of non-league football after two seasons in the Southern Premier League.

"It's going to take a month or so of the season to realise what the capabilities are of the players in this league," Tully told BBC Radio Cornwall.

Tully re-signed the bulk of the squad which won promotion in May, as well as adding former Torquay players Martin Rice and Aaron Dawson and loaning in Exeter City youngster Connor Riley-Lowe.

"I know the players that we had from last season, I know what they're like and I know what their mentality is and their capabilities and I fully believe they can step up and put right what they did on Tuesday," said Tully.

"We still have eyes on another centre-forward to come in.

"You need to bring in a goalscorer that's been there, done it and seen it all before, or a youngster that's got the capabilities of stepping in and scoring.

"We're definitely looking around and we may have a few options for something to happen in the next couple of week."
