Truro City manager Lee Hodges acknowledged that at this point in the season “it’s on us to go and do it” after the 2-1 home defeat by Wealdstone.

The team played well against a side that were unbeaten in seven and had won their previous five fixtures. However, their defence came undone at set pieces and they conceded two goals from corners, one of which was their own.

Hodges said: “We have to sort the set pieces out – that’s the frustrating thing – that we’ve conceded two set pieces last week, and we’ve conceded one and one from our set pieces this week.”

Hodges was obviously angered by his side’s lack of organisation, saying: “It’s on the board, you’re marking him, you’re marking him, no-one should be free. So I would like to have a look at the video, see whose man it is.”

“One moment of madness, and we’ve lost the game” – Lee Hodges

But the Truro manager was still happy with the performance his side put in against an in-form opposition.

“There are loads and loads of positives to take from the game. Ben (Adlesbury) played brilliant, Alex (Hartridge) played brilliant, and the rest of the boys worked extremely hard.

“One moment of madness, and we’ve lost the game.”

And whilst some of the other results may have gone their way (Truro are eight points clear of the drop zone), Hodges made it clear that he wouldn’t be happy unless his side was the one getting the result.

“You don’t want to worry about what others are doing, I don’t care about what others are doing. I only care about what we’re doing, and I’m just so annoyed that we haven’t got anything from the game when we deserved to.”
