SALISBURY'S run in the FA Trophy came to an end on Saturday as they were beaten 4-1 at Carshalton Athletic in the second round.

It started so well for the Whites as they took the lead after four minutes as Aaron Dawson scored.

The home side levelled matters on the 20 minute mark from Tommy Bradford.

Just after the half hour mark, Carshalton's Jordan Cheadle's 30-yard free-kick hit the top of the bar.

Then on 37 minutes, the home side took the for Michael Dixon.

Salisbury's hopes were not helped when Matt Partridge was forced out of the game due to injury just before the interval.

The Robins then left the Whites with a mountain to climb as they scored a third.

A corner from Cheadle came off the calf of Elliott Wheeler and ended up in the net.

For the start of the second half Salisbury were forced to make another change to their defence as Wheeler was forced out of the game.

The Robins were now on song and dominated the remainder of the game.

The tie was put to bed for good on 76 minutes, when Jack Sparkes brought down Dixon in the box.

Paris Hamilton-Downs made no mistake with the spot kick to complete the 4-1 and a place in the hat for the next round.

On Monday, the Robins were drawn at home to Barnet in the last 16 tie.

This evening, Salisbury are in action in the Southern League Cup with a home tie against Division One outfit Blackfield and Langley.
