SALISBURY FC have taken just one point from their opening two league fixtures.

Last Saturday the Whites travelled to Imber Court for the curtain raiser against Metropolitan Police, and would have been pleased to come away with a point from what has a been a tricky ground for them previously.

On Tuesday night, they welcomed Truro City to the Ray Mac for their first home game of the campaign.

The Whites got off to a decent start and had the better of the opening exchanges, with Brooks hitting the post just before the half hour mark.

Defender Sam Roberts was then given a straight red card just before half time, as the Salisbury man pulled down Rocky Neal after he had got goal side.

Going into the second half, Truro looked to take advantage of having the extra man, but they soon found themselves behind.

A moment of miscommunication at the back between defender and goalkeeper led to a Salisbury penalty.

Emmanuel Obudade stood up and sent Hamon the wrong way to break the deadlock.

Then just past the hour mark City drew level - a cross from Connor Riley-Lowe found the on-rushing Rocky Neal who headed the ball home to equalise.

Within seconds Truro had the ball in the back of the net again. Riley-Lowe and Neal again heavily involved. The full back linked up well with substitute Ryan Brett who picked out Neal who headed the ball down only for the ball to be turned into his own net by the home defender to give City the lead.

The Whites went looking for an equaliser, but City held strong defensively and limited their chances. Hamon was forced to save a powerful strike from just outside the box.

With a few minutes left of the 90, Will Dean ensured all the points would be heading back to Truro. The midfielder let fly an absolute thunder bolt of a strike that flew past O'Flaherty into the bottom left-hand corner.

Salisbury will hope to get their first win under their belts when they host Harrow Borough on Saturday afternoon.
