BLUEBIRDS UP NEXT FOR CITY

BY GARETH DAVIES

Truro City’s end of season marathon of matches begins in Wiltshire tomorrow as Paul Wotton’s side face off against Chippenham Town.

This will be the first of an incredible 10 games City play before the league cut off point of April 20.

And Truro will be hoping to get the required points to keep the side at Step Two for another season before the side face five games in eight days from April 8.

City took a huge step towards safety on Good Friday with a dramatic 3-2 win over Slough Town – a defeat that all but ended the Rebels’ slim play-off hopes.

A penalty in the first half and then a close-range finish just after the hour mark from Andrew Neal put City in complete control at Meadow Park.

But inside the final 10 minutes, goals from Johnny Goddard and substitute Gabe George drew Slough level. However, with the visitors still celebrating their equaliser, Neal hit the
woodwork within 10 seconds of the restart before Adam Porter tucked home to see Truro home.

The win lifted City to 17th in the standings and the side are closing in on that magical 50-point mark.

IN OPPOSITION

The Bluebirds are nine points off the play-off places and currently occupy 11th place in the National League South table.

However, they are one of the form teams in the division currently and will face City knowing that victory will be their fifth on the spin.

Chippenham’s recent good run of form has included eye-catching wins over both title elect Yeovil Town and one of the play-off favourites in Worthing.

The Wiltshire outfit, who were FA Vase runners-up in 1999-00, were due to play Farnborough on Good Friday, but the game at Cherrywood Road was called off owing to a waterlogged pitch.

LAST TIME WE MET

The two teams last met on the final day of September with Chippenham prevailing 2-0.
Ace marksman Matt McClure scored both goals for Gary Horgan’s charges.
