Cambridge City 1 Truro City 1

Truro gave their best performance of the season  as they claimed a well deserved point Southern League premier division at Cambridge City. who had begun the season with two away wins.

And City had the opportunities to make the long trip home with all three points as they continued  to show they are a team on the up.

City boss Steve Tully stuck with the same starting line up that won at 2-1 Paulton Rovers in the week and began well with Barry Hayles having a header cleared off the line and Jake Ash off target.

But they went ahead after 30 minutes when good interplay between Hayles and Vassell ended with the latter making it 1-0 to the visitors from close range.

At the start of the second period, Truro had chances to score a second before Cambridge levelled after 65 minutes.

A long ball caused confusion in the City defence and keeper Kyle Moore brought down Callum Donnelly, receiving a yellow card.

City have now conceded a penalty in all three of their games.

Josh Beech made no mistake from the spot kick to set up an exciting finale in which both sides had chances with Danny Kelly hitting the underside of the bar for the home team.

The visitors also had their chances but in the end both sides had to settle for a point.

City manager Steve Tully said: “ I am very pleased. It  was out best performance so far and we are heading in the right direction.”

City: Moore; White, Pugh, Farkins, Long; Ash, Green (capt), Lowry; Vassell, Hayles, Duff. Subs: Watson, Searle, Afful, Cooke, James.
