SALISBURY FC are back to winning ways following there 2-0 win over local rivals AFC Totton.

New signing Marvin Brooks scored his first and second goals for the club, including a second half penalty, which saw Totton defender Callum Chugg sent off.

Salisbury created plenty of chances in the opening stages of the game substitute Stuart Green who came on for the injured Kane O’Keefe went close on 25 minutes but the Totton keeper did well to save.

The Whites took the lead on the half hour mark, midfielder Lewis Benson picked up the ball on the half way line played a great through ball into the path of Green, who unselfishly squared the ball to Brooks for a simple tap in.

Sam Roberts nearly doubled the score for the Whites but after being played through on goal his first effort was saved and he couldn’t steer the rebound in either.

The away side almost got back on level terms just before the half, Nathaniel Sherbourne played a great ball across to Craig Feeney, but his shot cannoned off the post and Salisbury cleared to keep the score at 1-0 going into half time.

Steve Claridge's side then doubled there lead on 60 minutes, Brooks was pulled down in the box by Chugg, who was then given a straight red card, the striker then dusted himself off to dispatch the penalty with ease to give him his second goal of the game.

Brooks was then taken off and Eddie Perrett entered the fray and had the ball in the back of the net, but the linesman had other ideas and signalled for offside.

Green could have made it 3-0 but his shot was saved by the Totton keeper, after going through one on one.

Substitute Flavio Tavares caused plenty of problems for the Totton defence when introduced and produced a great cross having beaten his man on the left, but Benson could only smash his effort over the bar, as the game then ended with Salisbury 2-0 winners.
