(played at Torquay United) At the end of the match fireworks went off on the English Riviera - a fitting tribute for three well-earned points for the Bluebirds.

At the end of the match fireworks went off on the English Riviera - a fitting tribute for three well-earned points for the Bluebirds.
Truro were the first to show on three minutes when Tyler Harvey headed very wide.
Three minutes later Alex Ferguson’s initial shot was blocked and his follow-up effort from the edge of the area cleared the bar.
At the other end Connor Riley-Lowe’s free kick was off target and a further set piece from the same player was blocked.
Another Truro free kick saw Ed Palmer fizz an effort wide. Chippenham’s first corner on seventeen minutes saw Will Richards head wide from Josh Smile’s flag kick.
Nine minutes later Ferguson’s low shot from just inside the area went wide.
On the half hour a long ball into the Truro area saw Ferguson’s volley superbly saved by Jo Jo Wollacott.
A minute before the interval Smile chested the ball into the path of Nat Jarvis who burst into the area before being felled but despite appeals no penalty ensued.
A minute into stoppage time Smile’s free kick from near the left corner flag was glanced home by Will Richards.
After the interval James Richards headed wide for the hosts, whilst Niall Thompson’s shot was deflected for a corner.
On fifty six minutes Wollacott left his area to clear but could only find Matt Smith whose shot on an empty goal was off target.
Two minutes later Jarvis’s shot on the turn was well-saved by Wollacott.
Just after the hour a Chippenham move broke down and a swift breakaway saw Will Henry pull off a superb save to deny Jon-Paul Pittman. Truro equalised on sixty five minutes when Thompson’s cross/shot from wide on the right drifted over Henry and into the net.
Seven minutes later Curtis McDonald headed substitute James Guthrie’s corner wide.
Fifteen minutes from time the Bluebirds hit the winning goal when Smile’s weighted cross was met with a bullet header from Jarvis.
Wollacott then tipped away another Smile cross from under his crossbar.
Whilst nine minutes from time Richards headed a Guthrie corner just wide. Henry then tipped away another Truro effort before Harvey’s cross was headed over by Palmer.
