SWINDON Supermarine will be looking to end a horrendous head-to-head record against Truro City this afternoon when the White Tigers arrive at the Webbswood stadium in Southern League Premier Division South.

In six previous meetings, Truro are unbeaten having won five and drawn the other.

The last meeting was in January when Marine lost 3-1 at home after two late goals with Ryan Campbell netting for Marine.

The hosts will be looking to finally change that trend this weekend having won their last three games and residing in third place in the early standings.

Managed by former Plymouth stalwart Paul Wotton, Truro ended last season top of the pile before the abrupt end, having won 21 of their 31 matches.

This season they currently sit seventh in the table, although two defeats in their last two – at Taunton in the FA Cup and at Hayes & Yeading in the League – mean they are potentially a wounded animal coming into the game.

Marine arrive into the game with no injuries worries – the only slight concern was full-back Louis Spalding, but he has recovered from a slight knock which saw him sit out last weekend’s win against Dorchester.

Ahead of the contest, manager Lee Spalding said his side must take advantage of a strong side being out of form.

“This is a big game for both sides at this early stage of the season,” he said.

“We want to continue with our recent good run of form and make it four 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.

“But 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.”
