PREVIEW: No fear in the battle of the Tigers

By Truro City Football Club

Big home game on Saturday...

THE WHITE Tigers are straight back into home action on Saturday as we take on a Gloucester City side that are also desperate for the points to pull themselves away from the bottom three.
They currently sit just one place and one point above us in 18th position, so all is to play for in what is sure to be a nail-biting encounter.
“It’s a big game, but I don’t want us to play with any fear,” said manager, Paul Wilkinson. “We will make sure that we prepare correctly and that as a group we are ready.
“We want to keep improving and progressing and we’ll take this into our final three games.
“I felt that we competed well against Concord and were a bit unlucky to go in at the break trailing. A bit of naivety cost us; we’re a young side and had a bit of a reality check against more experienced opponents.
“We started the second half well but then the red card put us on the back-foot. That said, we still created a couple of decent chances as we battled to get back into the game.
Prior to Tuesday’s 3-1 reverse at the hands of Concord Rangers, our previous trips to Dartford and Hemel Hemsptead Town both yielded draws to show what we are capable of.
We have already beaten Gloucester City this season as we secured a deserved 2-0 away win at the start of September.
It goes without saying that we need your support now more than ever, so come along and get behind the lads. Kick-off is at 3.00pm.
