Lee Hodges' side are seventh in National League South, three points off top spot

Truro City boss Lee Hodges says his side deserved something from their 1-0 FA Trophy loss at National League high-fliers Sutton United.

The National League South team were beaten after Craig Dundas scored in the 89th minute for the home side.

"You couldn't tell what division each team was in," Hodges told BBC Radio Cornwall after the defeat.

"I thought we were great and we looked back to our best, but in football you don't always get what you deserve."

Hodges, who has led his side to the first round of the FA Cup this season for the first time in the club's history, said small errors cost them.

"For a 10-second spell of the whole game we made three mistakes and it's cost us the game," he said.

"They should be disappointed in there. You can't afford to make silly little errors.

"It's only little errors, but they've cost us a game that we don't deserve to lose, because I thought we were great.

"A replay was at least what we deserved, but that's football.

"We have to pick ourselves up very quickly and I know they will."
