Charlton Athletic 3 Truro City 1

Straight forward. Ish..

Sounded like a decent game in which Truro very much played their part. The Cornishman grabbing a deserved goal through the impressive Tyler Harvey and the tie was no way a stroll, equally I was happy to see us move past inferior opposition (I say that with the deepest respect to the Cornishmen) with some ease, which has rarely been the case in recent decades.

We scored at good times. Ben Reeves, who looks to have a real eye for goal, got us off to the perfect start scoring with a lovely finish in the 10th minute.

We could have extended our lead before the break, but Solly had to clear one of the line as Truro stayed in it.

2nd half Mark Marshall got his first Addicks goal with a left footed shot that was deflected past their ‘keeper. However then Truro got their moment which got 1,000 fans in the Jimmy Seed on their feet. Harvey heading powerfully home.

However Reeves’ second, a drive from outside of the box, restored the two goal advantage and killed any hopes fortunately of a giant killing. Holmes had a chance at the end and Truro also hit the bar.

Happily Truro weren’t added to the lost of Maidstone, Boreham Wood and Oxford City, who provided the FA Cup shocks this weekend.

Quote: “People talk about ‘What are you going to do in January?’ Well the thing is, you look at these players we’ve got coming back, they’re just as important as anything we can do. I don’t think many people can sign better players at this level than Marshy and Ben Reeves in January.”

    • Dodoo has been poor hasn’t he? I’d be possible tempted to give KAG a go. He needs the opportunity.

    KAG has potential as a winger or as a striker if he can he can rediscover his goalscoring touch,However, he is not a number 9. When I suggested RHC I thought that KAG would also
    be playing as he only played a short time on Sunday.
