Truro City are the visitors to the Jubilee Stadium this evening as Gloucester City play their first National League South game at their rented home for the season.

The Tigers were defeated on the opening day of the season away at Chelmsford City, who are well tipped to be league champions come the end of the season.

Understandably, Harris was disappointed not to come away with anything from the game on Saturday but reiterated that nothing is decided after just one game of the season.

“It was always going to be a tough game going to Chelmsford on the opening day because they’re favourites for the league title with most people and we always knew why.

“We were disappointed in the way we conceded those two goals, especially the second one as before that went in we really looked like we were in with a chance of getting something from the game.

“However, it’s still early doors and nothing will take shape for the next eight to twelve games so we don’t need to worry about it too much now because it’s done.”

Truro City picked up a last gasp win against Welling United on the opening day, claiming a 3-2 victory.

However, it wasn’t all plain sailing for the White Tigers, who led 2-0 before the visitors staged a fight back to draw level.

Truro, managed by former Spurs and Plymouth Argyle midfielder Lee Hodges, claimed all three points in the dying moments after River Allen struck in stoppage time.

Harris said that is side would be fully focused on the task at hand and not dwell on the opening day defeat, whilst also urging the people of Gloucester to come and support their team.

“I know that the lads are itching to set the record straight now” he said.

“Our focus is now on Truro tonight; it’s our first competitive home game at Evesham and the more people that can come down and get behind us will be a great help to the lads.

“We’re definitely up against it playing out of the county but we know how good our supporters are and that they’ll get behind us right from the get-go.”
