Match Report: Lacklustre Poole thumped in flat performance

Poole Town 1

Truro City 4

Poole Town failed to muster any response to their defeat at the weekend, losing by the same margin to Truro City.

Jack Dickson must have thought he opened the scoreline as he watched his shot from range dip on to the crossbar, and it would have been interesting to have had further insight as he watched Truro immediately go up the other end and score.

A soft free-kick for an alleged handball from Josh Carmichael was whipped into the box, with Declan Rose slicing his clearance – allowing Tyler Harvey to fire home against a lackadaisical Poole defence.

After the set-back Poole looked insipid and shell-shocked, failing to generate much of note. Brooklyn Genesini saw a header blocked off the line from a corner, but Poole would gift the away side another free-kick and another goal shortly before the break.

A free-kick from deep tempted Mark Childs to come out for the cross, but the shotstopper was unable to collect the ball and instead saw it headed from his grasp by Diabete for the White Tiger’s second.

Dolphins looked lethargic and sloppy in the second half, allowing Truro to milk their lead and put gloss to the scoreline.

Josh Carmichael headed home shortly before the break but there was little fanfare as Dolphins were left embarrassed for the second time in four days.
