IRON ARE TOO TOUGH AS TIGERS LOSE LEAD
BRAINTREE TOWN took over at the top of the league thanks to their victory and Truro only drawing.
A double from Phil Roberts helped Town come from behind after Karnell Chambers had given the Tigers the lead.
The opening quarter of an hour was as lackadaisical a display of football from both sides as will grace the Jubilee Stadium all season.
The first chance of the game came for Gloucester as Lewis Hall picked out Chambers with a great cross, but the forward could only volley over.
He would not have to wait long for his first of the season though, as he dispossessed Alfred Mugabo, before firing past Nathan McDonald.
Braintree manager Brad Quinton sent his side out with half of the interval still to go, and the team talk clearly worked, as Roberts drew the visitors level before the Tigers had touched the ball in the second half.
The quick turnaround was complete as Roberts volleyed home from Karl Oliyide’s cross after Hall lost possession on the edge of his own box.
City were shellshocked and the game was put to bed on the hour, as Oliyide turned scorer as he snuck a shot into the far corner of the net from inside the 18yard box.
