Marine v Truro City Preview

Posted by Keith Yeomans


This Saturday, 24th October at 3pm, Swindon Supermarine have a tough task as they take on the might of Truro City at the Webbswood Stadium. Managed by former Plymouth Argyle stalwart Paul Wotton, the White Tigers of Truro ended last season top of the pile before the season ended abruptly winning 21 of their 31 matches.

This season has started in the same vein and they sit 7th in the table having won 3 of their 6 games although 2 defeats in their last 2 at Taunton Town in the FA Cup 4-2 and at Hayes & Yeading United 3-1 in the League mean they are potentially a wounded animal coming into the game.

The head to head record does not make good reading for Marine. In our 6 previous meetings Truro are unbeaten, having won 5 of the games with 1 draw. The last meeting was in January this year when Marine lost 3-1 at home after a late goal sealed the win with Ryan Campbell netting for us. The key men for Truro are striker Andrew Neil, who came in from Taunton Town in the summer and has netted 3 times this season and their top scorer from last season is former Bath City striker Tyler Harvey.

Lee Spalding Lee Spalding writes: “This is a big game for both sides at this early stage of the season. We want to continue with our recent good run of form and make it 4 wins on the spin, particularly in front of our home fans. We need to take advantage of the home fixture against a Truro team who have lost their last two matches and will be seeking a bounce back performance. We have to make sure that it is not against us! I expect a really competitive game against one of the sides who be in contention for a promotion spot by the end of the season”
