Gloucester City manager Tim Harris has called for the people of Gloucester to come out and support the Tigers in their first home game of the 2017/18 National League South season.

Harris’ side face Truro City at the Jubilee Stadium this evening, as the Tigers play their first home league game at their new temporary home at Evesham United.

Having lost on the opening day of the season away at Chelmsford City at the weekend, Harris says that his team are itching to set the record straight.

“It’s a bit different playing on a Monday night but we see it as a positive thing” he said.

“Our fans are some of the best in the region and we hope that they’ll come out in their numbers this evening to show their support for the boys.

“All the lads are chomping at the bit to get out there and set the record straight after Saturday and the more support we have behind us, the better.”

Truro came out 3-2 winners against Welling United on the opening day, but left it late having been 2-0 up before the visitors fought back to level.

The Tigers will be without Karnell Chambers for the visit of the White Tigers, while Tom Webb and Chris Knowles are still unavailable.

“Karnell came off on Saturday with a tight hamstring and thankfully it isn’t too serious, but the quick turnaround in fixtures has come a little too soon” said Harris.

“Naturally we’re being a bit cautious with Ethan Moore having been out for so long, but other than that we have a clean bill of health and we can’t wait.

“For myself, I’m really looking forward to seeing as many faces there this evening and it will be great to have a good crowd behind us.”

Kick-off at the Jubilee Stadium is 19:45. Admission prices are £13 Adults, £7 Concessions and free for ages 12 and under.
