SALISBURY FC's FA Cup run has ended, as the side lost 2-0 at home to Poole Town.

Two second-half goals from Jamie Whisken and Jez Bedford were enough for the Dorset side to secure a place in the next round.

Comments from Poole manager Tom Killick created a lot of hype, after he said it was a "tragedy" seeing Marvin Brooks playing in step four before the game.

But it was Brooks' side who started the game the better. Within three minutes the Whites could have taken the lead - defender Elliott Wheeler struck a fierce shot from outside the area, but Poole keeper Nick Hutchings was equal to it.

For the rest of the first half neither side created any clear-cut chances, and the half ended goalless.

The Dolphins were quick out the blocks in the second half, and should have gone 1-0 up, but Charlie Searle made himself big to deny Jack Dickson.

The Dorset side did take the lead in the 63rd minute when Whisken nodded in from a Dickson corner to make it 1-0.

The Whites then brought on Kane O'Keefe to add some aerial height into the front line.

In the 77th minute, defender Jake Wannell, who was already on a yellow card, looked to have brought down Warren Bentley and was the last man, but the referee waved play on.

Chris Shephard entered the fray on 82 minutes and set up Brooks, who should have equalised for the Whites, but after creating space in the box to shoot his effort cannoned off the post and was cleared.

Salisbury again went close, with the ball bobbing around the box, but Poole eventually cleared their lines.

Six minutes of added time was signalled by the referee and, in the fifth minute, Salisbury had a massive penalty appeal turned down.

Shephard looked to have been pulled down in the box after being played through on goal but nothing was awarded.

Poole wrapped up the game when Bedford found space on the edge of the area to fire home past Searle, and secure the Dorset side's place in the next round.
