29.3.2014                Cambridge City 4 - 1 Truro City                                                                                                                     Cambridge City team: Barrett, Ramm, Tom Pepper, Lawton, Chaffey, Beech, Lewis, Adam Martin, Andrew Phillips, Adam Marriott and Josh Dawkin. Subs used were Kelvin Bossman for Phillips, Danny Kelly for Lewis and Robbie Burns for Marriott. The Lilywhites got back to winning ways at the Glassworld Stadium after the manager (Gary Roberts) had made a few changes to the starting eleven with the idea of coping better with an uneven pitch. The biggest suprised of these was to bring Andrew Phillips into the starting eleven at the expence of Kelven Bossman. The inclusion of Phillips, who was making his first league start for the Lilywhites, allowed them to take a more aerial route. They went ahead in the 13th through Adam Marriott but had to wait to the dying seconds of the first half to score their second. This time from Josh Beech. In between they had had two brilliant chances, from Phillips and Marriott, well saved by the Truro goalkeeper. In the second half, the Lilywhites scored next after a shot by Josh Dawkin was put into his own by a Truro defender. This was in the 62nd minutes and two minutes later Will Lawton, who was making his first league start since November, scored their fourth. Truro pulled one back in the 75th minute. Amongs the changes Gary Roberts made was to send on Danny Kelly, who had just returned to the Club after a spell living in Australia. Danny's younger brother, Sam, was one of the unused subs.

16.8.2014                     Cambridge City 1 - 1 Truro City                                                                                                                        Cambridge City team: Barrett, Pepper, Charlie Day, Lawton, Chaffey, Beech, Callum Donnelly, Martin, Kelly, Phillips and Dawkin. Subs used were Lewis for Dawkin and Jake Woolley for Donnelly. Like the match at Redbridge, the Lillywhites struggled to cope and break down a solid Truro side during the first half in which Truro went in front thanks to a deflected shot in the 30th minute by Isaac Vassell. After the break things changed and as the half went on City got beater and beater. They pulled level in the 65th minute when Josh Beech scored from the penalty spot after Callum Donnelly was brought down by the Truro goalkeeper, who got away with a booking. From then on only one side really looked like winning and City could easily have had a second penalty after Danny Kelly was pulled by his shirt but unfortunately for them it was on the referee's blind side and was not seen by the linesman who was not up with play. Danny Kelly also had a powerful shot bounce back off the underside of the bar, with the visitor's goalkeeper well beaten.
