Blue Square Bet

.....Treyew Road gate for Saturday's 1-0 Blue Square Bet South defeat to Bromley.
Crisis club City's gate was 538 and, although the home side were undone by a 39th minute goal from Pierre Joseph-Dubois, Hodges said: "It was brilliant to get another couple of hundred extra people turning up on Saturday, and they could make a huge difference to our future. "The more support we have, the better it will be for a potential investor, because we really need someone to come in and take the club on now."
Truro host AFC Totton in the FA Cup this coming Saturday and Hodges is hoping for a similar rise in attendance, and a better result.
The 39-year-old said: "On Saturday against Bromley we switched off for a second at a set-piece and they scored.
"That's all it takes and it was such a shame that after last week's 8-0 defeat at Maidenhead United we could not bounce back with a point, especially for all the fans who have come back to support us.
"That would have really made the day extra-special, but at least it was a massive improvement on last week.
"The boys gave it their all, again, and were much more back to their old selves, even though it has been a taxing week for all of us off the field.
"To see so many people around the ground with smiles on their faces is something that will stick with me, even though we could not give them the result they wanted.
"I was pleased in one way, but disappointed in another, if that makes sense," Hodges added.
"The turn-out was brilliant, the result was not, although I do think – but for that second – we were heading for a draw. Bromley have a lot of pace but we contained them, and although they scored Ben Williams hit the bar for us."
