In-form Truro City set out on the Emirates FA Cup trail on Saturday with a second qualifying round home tie with AFC Portchester (kick-off 3.00pm).

The White Tigers go into the game on the back of five consecutive victories that have thrust them into second place in the Vanarama National League South table.
Meanwhile, the visitors have beaten Christchurch (5-1), Amesbury Town (3-1) and Dorchester Town (1-0) to get to this stage of the competition.
They sit eighth in the Sydenhams Wessex League Premier Division table with four wins and two defeats from their six League games to date. Their last game saw them register a resounding 7-0 victory at Newport (IoW).
“This is a competition that we are long overdue a good run in,” admitted Truro manager, Lee Hodges. “We have an opportunity to progress on Saturday and to do that we need to make sure that we are professional and approach the game in the right way.
“Our visitors will come here with nothing to lose. They will be able to play with freedom and, as favourites, all of the pressure will be on us.”
