****************

Both sides started the game brightly, Kingstonian having a couple of right wing free-kick chances, but it only took City nine minutes to find the back of the net. A whipped left-wing cross wasn’t dealt with by two home defenders and Dan Green had a simple finish to make it 1-0.

Truro continued to have the better of the game, Matt Wright’s lob landing on the roof of the net. City’s second was forthcoming, in the 26th minute Ryan Brett fired a shot at goal, Kingstonian ‘keeper Tolfrey saved, but only parried to Matt Wright, who tapped home to make it 2-0.

The second goal seemed to spur the home side on considerably, and Reece Beckles saw his close shot well-saved by Martin Rice. Neither side however, could find another way through before the break.

City were the better side after the restart, being the more positive side in possession and when the long balls came. Despite this no chances came about for either side, only Kingstonian managed a couple of soft shots that were easily claimed by Rice.

The Tigers took 30 second half minutes to muster their first real effort at goal, good play from Les Afful teeing up Green to hit a half-volley against the post.

Truro though continued to attack with pace, and they were rewarded in the 84th minute, Matt Wright playing a perfect through-ball to sub Isaac Vassell to kill off any late hopes the hosts may have had.

3-0 would be the way the game stayed, and City are now one step further along the road to an FA Trophy final at Wembley.
