A 98th minute winner from Louis Rooney dramatically earned Truro City all three points in a 1-0 win over Gosport Borough at Treyew Road, writes Cameron Weldon.

The striker came on as a second half substitute to help Truro claim all three points and end a near perfect week in the best possible fashion.

After wins in the FA Cup and League Cup respectively already this week, the White Tigers returned to league action looking to retain their excellent start to the season.

It was a rather uneventful opening period for both sides with very little goal line action. Luke Jephcott came the closest for the home side as he failed to convert a Niall Thompson cross after some good work out wide from the latter.

The visitors from Dorset had arguably the best chance of the half as centre half Sam Roberts found himself completely alone at the back post, but he fluffed his line and blazed his effort well over the bar.

Noah Keats fired wide up the other end as a rather dull opening half was brought to an end.

The second half started like the first half finished with very little chances to report. Will Dean picked out James Ward on two occasions from corners, but the Truro centre half was penalised on both occasions as frustrations grew.

Paul Wotton introduced Moulaye N’Diaye and Louis Rooney as the White Tigers looked to break the deadlock.

Niall Thompson forced Gosport 'keeper Patrick O’Flaherty into a great save as the score remained goalless.

The visitors did have the ball in the back of the net but was quickly disallowed after City keeper James Hamon was clearly fouled.

The clock kept ticking and just as the game looked done and dusted, up stepped Louis Rooney. The striker latched onto a loose ball after an Adel Gafaiti ball in wasn’t dealt with, to fire home to secure victory for the White Tigers with 98 minutes played.

Delight all round for Truro who don’t have long before they are back in action as they visit Wimborne Town on Tuesday evening.

Truo: Hamon, Davis, Law, Ward, Gafaiti, Richards (c), Dean, Booth, Keats (N’Diaye 61), Jephcott (Rooney 68), Thompson.
