The games keep coming thick and fast as Welling United return to action under the lights at the J Hearnden Skip Hire Community Stadium against Truro City on Tuesday evening (7.45pm).

The Wings’ excellent form has seen them go unbeaten in six league games in recent weeks, pulling themselves back to within touching distance of safety outside of the bottom four.

Indeed, three points would see them pull out of the relegation zone for the first time since August, leapfrogging their opponents who sit in 19th place, two points ahead of Welling, although with two games in hand.

Rod Stringer will have to shuffle his pace with skipper Anthony Grant’s one-game suspension kicking in, while Will Wood and Chiori Johnson will both be missing with injuries.


After winning promotion to the National League South last term, Truro have managed to keep themselves at arms’ length from the bottom four, thanks in part to an excellent run of form over the turn of the year which saw boss Paul Wotton pick up the Manager of the Month award for December.

But six games without victory, including five defeats, have seen them dragged back into the mix, while a change of temporary home ground and postponements has also seen them fall behind in terms of games played.

With no game at the weekend, they come to DA16 off the back of a 2-1 defeat at Bath City last Tuesday evening.


The White Tigers got the better of the Wings on the opening day of the season, claiming a 5-2 win.

Welling were made to pay for a sloppy first half which saw the home side score five times, while Cameron Green’s debut strike and Antony Papadopoulos’ penalty proved to be little more than a consolation.\
