*BS*I have been bemoaning the lack of first team football for some time now and Saturday we finally got back to playing competitively at home to Truro.*BF*

However, after an uncharacteristically poor start and having gone a goal down I wished the pitches had been out of action once again.

The goal was what both we and Truro deserved and in truth it was what we needed, as from that point on we began to find our passing range and within ten minutes were level with a neat finish from George.

The final scoreline may have flattered us a little but having not been at our best the win was pleasing. The irony of football is that we have played far better than that this season and yet not come away with three points. Eastbourne Borough away springs to mind, and as much as I want the combination of playing well and winning at this stage of the season the three points is all that matters.

It was pleasing to see all three goals scored by our strikers, which will do them no harm for their confidence. It shows the depth of our squad that we could bring on a completely new forward line in Donovan Simmonds, Billy Bricknell and James Walker, three players that I’m sure would get in most Conference South teams with ease.

I must say that Saturday’s team selection was the most difficult I have had to make since my time here, a sure sign that players are all performing well and deserving of a white shirt which is a headache but a nice one!

We now turn our attentions to the next fixture, which sees us entertain Welling at home in a mouthwatering game between two teams aiming for a top five finish.

I’m certain that there will be many twists and turns along the way but for sure these games against the teams above us will go a long way in deciding our fate.

I hope that as many fans as possible from both clubs make the effort to come along to Crabble to make it an atmosphere to remember.
