Truro City manager Steve Tully says he is looking forward to testing his squad when they host National League South leaders Ebbsfleet United.

The White Tigers, who are unbeaten in their last nine matches, moved into the play-off places on Tuesday with a 4-2 win over Hemel Hempstead.

"Ebbsfleet are undefeated away from home, so what a challenge that is," Tully told BBC Radio Cornwall.

"Can we be the first team to beat them away?" Tully added.

Ebbsfleet are 12 points clear at the top of the division, but failed to beat Truro when Tully's side made the long trip to Kent.

"I believe we've got a strong squad, a strong unit, and as long as we stick together we'll have a chance," Tully said.

"We love a challenge and we've said to the players that it's a game that we can go and enjoy. There's no pressure on us, no-one expects anything.

"We're in a good place at the moment. We're sitting nicely in the table with a lot of football to be played."
