DANNY Holmes was pleased with his side's second-half performance as Wimborne Town battled back to draw with Truro City at Cuthbury.

High-flying Truro led 1-0 at the break thanks to a Carl Pettefer own goal, but a Stefan Penny penalty levelled the contest before Adel Gafaiti was sent off for the visitors.

Billy Maybury completed the turnaround with a long-range strike, but the Southern League South contest ended 2-2 after Luke Jephcott tucked in a spot kick.

Boss Holmes told Radio Wimborne: "I felt it was an excellent performance in the end.

"I felt we didn't start very lively. We looked sloppy in our warm-up and in every area I felt we were a little bit slow to the mark.

"Second half, we came right out at them and we worked our socks off as well as them and we created more opportunities.

"I know what we can do and after we problem-solved at half-time, we had more effort and we looked more on the front foot. I think we need to do that more consistently."

Asked if his players will be given the weekend off with no fixture scheduled, Holmes added: "They will get Saturday off. If they kept up the first-half performance they wouldn't have!

"But from the second half they certainly deserved it. I think that will bring them back even fresher."
