There is no time to dwell on yesterday’s setback at Hayes & Yeading United with the Peacocks facing another big Southern League match against Truro City at the Cygnet Health Care Stadium tomorrow afternoon (30th August), ko 3.00pm.

The defeat in West London was Town’s second in succession and they will be determined to avoid a hat trick of reverses when they play their Cornish visitors who have also not made the most convincing of starts. City lie in 14th spot, four places and one point below the Peacocks, having recovered from a 4-0 home loss to Hendon on the opening day to win at Salisbury but have since drawn their last two fixtures, a 1-1 draw at Walton Casuals last weekend being followed by a goalless affair with Hartley Wintney yesterday at their temporary Plymouth Parkway home. The Peacocks will be eager to regain that winning feeling in front of their own fans after losing to Metropolitan Police in their most recent home outing while the return of former Town players Shane White, Ryan Brett, Ed Palmer and Rocky Neal will add an extra ingredient to the game.

It was honours even in the meetings between the sides during the shortened 20-21 campaign. Town drew 1-1 at Treyew Road in the League before beating the White Tigers 4-2 in the FA Cup at home. Truro however gained revenge for that defeat with a win by the same scoreline in the FA Trophy, the final game for the Peacocks before action was brought to a Covid-induced halt.

Town will be missing Jay Foulston for tomorrow who had to be taken off with a hamstring injury at Hayes yesterday while there will be fitness tests for Jared Lewington, Ioan Richards and Lee Lucas. Dan Sullivan and Ben Adelsbury came through their first appearances of the season yesterday without further concern. Head of Football Rob Dray said:” It was a tough game at Hayes and tomorrow will be another big test. There’s no point in us mulling over our list of injuries though, we have to get on with it and use our squad to its full potential. Hopefully we get a big home support in tomorrow and they can help us achieve a positive result.”
