Truro City boss Lee Hodges says his side reaching the National League South play-offs is 'phenomenal'.

The White Tigers drew 1-1 at Hampton and Richmond to end the season seventh in the table, the final play-off place.

They will travel up to face Hampton again on Wednesday in the play-offs.

"We were favourites to get relegated at the start of the season, so to finish in the play-offs, it doesn't matter where we've finished, is some achievement," Hodges told BBC Cornwall.

"We had a small squad and everybody at some stage has been needed and played a major part in it.

"To play 42 games, to get into the play-offs and do what we've done is phenomenal."

City will face Chelmsford City in the play-off semi-finals if they can beat Hampton and Richmond, who they defeated in the final qualifying round of the FA Cup last october to book a place in the first round for the first time.

"It's cup football now, you win you go through, you lose you're finished," added Hodges.
