“I really enjoyed that. It was hard work but everyone was at it for the full 90 minutes. Like I said in the programme, we believe we are going to get something from the game and you just have to work hard and make that happen. I had a few strong words at half-time about one of two bits of decision-making in the box when we were attacking – I’m sure you know what I mean – and Kingy just said don’t change anything else and we’ll win. Truro are a decent side, a proper team, quite physical. Ed Palmer (Truro’s no4) was marking me and he was trying to give me a hard time. I know him from our time together at Torquay but I thought in the end we played some great stuff and deserved the 3 points.”

“Like I said a few weeks ago, if we get a win, we can go on a run. That’s what this league is like and now it’s happening. 3 wins out of 4, you can’t argue with that and they are a good side but we competed properly with them and every single player was at it for the whole game. I’m really pleased with the work they all put in. The centre halves were physical and strong, the full backs too – everyone battled, everyone. I know I was down on my last legs at the end but we all worked so hard.  As far as my long-term injury is concerned I’m still feeling it a little bit so maybe I’m at just over 90% now. It doesn’t stop me putting myself about. We said at half time that we needed to carry on working hard and we would get our reward. All the players put in a real shift and worked so hard.  That’s what we need to do every game – it’s a question of believing and putting in the hard work and you get your reward.”

“Very happy. We dug deep with the determination and the mind-set we needed to get the three points. And it’s a home game too. They are not a bad side to be fair but I thought for the first 20-30 minutes we battered them and so even when we went 2-1 down we still had the belief that we could get back in the game to win it. At half time we just said, keep the faith, just keep doing what we do and we’ll get the result – and it happened. On the penalty, I’ve gone inside the box and he’s touched me, so it’s not like I’ve tried to go down on purpose. I’ve gone down and the ref’s given it. It was a good move leading up to it. We’ve been working on that sort of thing in training and now it’s a case of showing it in the game.”

Truro midfielder Aaron Lamont

“We’re not happy. We didn’t start too well but we got back into the game and we were done by an own goal and a penalty. It was definitely an OG, I was standing right next to him in the box. An OG is just one of those things but it was never a penalty. Sometimes these things happen. We’re used to all the travelling, so we don’t make slow starts in games and once we took the lead we were in control. Whitehawk played well to be fair in the second half down the hill, which does make a difference. It’s a big hill to get up. They pushed us back for most of the second half but we still had a few chances. It’s not embarrassing to be the first team to lose here because Whitehawk would never be in the position they are with the team they’ve got now, but we shouldn’t have lost.”
