Two late goals will make the six-hour return journey from Cornwall fly past after St Albans City picked up an impressive 2-1 win at Truro City.

Sam Merson and Charlie Walker scored inside the final 20 minutes to delight the travelling army of supporters.

It was Merson’s ninth of the season in all competitions, getting in behind the home defence to beat keeper Tom McHale.

Walker’s came on 81 minutes as he pounced on a mistake by Ben Gerring to fire past the helpess McHale.

Tyler Harvey pulled one back from the penalty spot as the clock moved into added time but City held on for a vital victory.

They are now seventh in the Vanarama National League South table, six points behind leaders Dartford, and just two adrift of today’s hosts in fourth.

City’s next game is away to Hertford Town on Tuesday in the Herts Senior Cup before league action action returns to Clarence Park on Saturday with the visit of FA Cup heroes Oxford City.
