Oldham 3-0 Truro City
In the first fixture of the month, Truro went to Boundary Park with an almost full strength side, conceding early when David Perkins scored in the 8th minute. The rest of the first half fairly even but just before half-time, captain Arran Pugh received a yellow card which saw him suspended for the one game after collecting five throughout the season so far.
After the break, Truro gave away a penalty in the 50th minute after Josh Langley brought down Saul inside the box. Callum Cooke stepped up and converted the penalty to put Oldham ahead by two goals. Shortly after, Cooke split the defence with a through ball to Anthony Clay who placed a shot past Ollie Chenoweth to see Oldham come away with a 3-0 victory.

Kurtis March stepped up to attempt the penalty, only for Mark Cousins to make the save to see the game head to half time at 0-0.
After the break, O’Brien got onto the end of a March cross and heading the ball past Cousins to give Truro the lead.

The final goal of the match saw Jamie Richards hit a volley from a Chez Isaac corner to see Newport head back to Wales disappointed.
Luton 2-3 Truro City
Truro opened the scoring almost immediately in the fixture against Truro after a shot from Kelvin Etuhu hit the post and rebounded off goalkeeper Luke McCormick’s back in the 2nd minute.

Straight after the break, Long scored his second goal to see the team locked at 2-2 with a placed shot past Chenoweth.

Early in the first half, Arturo Lupoli levelled the score when he broke clear of the Truro defence and putting the ball past a diving Ollie Chenoweth. Swindon continued to control the game and created numerous opportunities but in the end the game finished 1-1.
After a poor start, Truro is in a good position heading into November, with the side currently playing well above expectations. They are currently five points away from the play-off spots and six points clear of relegation, well above the prediction of last place at the start of the season.
After some terrific performances, Chez Isaac has been deemed the player of the month showing quality passing in the midfield as well as contributing with a goal and an assist.
The former Braintree player joined Truro at the beginning of the season on free transfer and has been a key figure for the side during the season so far.
November is expected to be a tough month for Truro, with all four league opponents currently in the top eight positions on the league table. They will be looking for revenge against Exeter, who Truro has yet to defeat in three previous outings.
In the FA Cup, Truro will face Havant & Waterlooville, who are currently 18th in the Skrill South. The sides have met twice previously in the Skrill South during the 2014/15 season, with both sides holding a victory over each other.
