The Peacocks face another important match in the Vanarama National League South when they welcome Truro City to Wordsworth Drive tomorrow evening (6th February), ko 7.45pm.

The fixture, originally scheduled for Truro’s groundshare home at Plymouth Parkway, was switched to Taunton’s ground last week and gives Town the opportunity of building on two successive League draws to hopefully secure their first victory since early December. Since that comprehensive win over Farnborough, the Peacocks have picked up just four points from nine games which sees them hover one place above the relegation zone in 20th spot. A win tomorrow would see them climb up to 18th, overtaking both City and Dartford, but they know there is a great deal of hard work to do to turn the formbook around.

No better place to start than against the White Tigers, two points ahead of Town having played one less game. Results for them over the past two months have been at the opposite ends of the spectrum, December providing home wins over St Albans City and Havant & Waterlooville which they backed up with impressive victories at Weston-super-Mare and Torquay United while their only defeat came at Maidstone United. 2024 also began well with three points at Dover but since then two consecutive home defeats to Worthing and Braintree Town and a 2-1 reverse at Hampton & Richmond on Saturday leaves them peering over their shoulder. In a bid to change their fortunes, manager Paul Wootton has recruited two loan signings in the past week in the shape of midfielder Ryan Kavanagh from Cardiff City and striker Ollie Bray from Aldershot and the new forward marked his Truro debut with their goal at Hampton on Saturday. The City squad also includes a sizeable sprinkling of former Peacocks in their ranks including Ed Palmer, Ryan Brett, Dan Sullivan, Ben Adelsbury, Andrew Neal and Matt Buse so an interesting evening awaits.

Head of Football Rob Dray names an unchanged squad from Saturday’s trip to Welling, saying;” It will be another big test. We’re very familiar with them so we know what to expect and respect to what Wottsy has done at the club. The same things apply as the last two league games, we must work hard and do the basics properly and hopefully the rewards will follow.”
