SALISBURY FC have the biggest week of their season so far as they face two of their title rivals in the space of three days.

On Saturday, Weymouth make the trip to the Ray Mac and then on Tuesday night leaders Taunton will make the journey from Somerset to Wiltshire.

The Whites unbeaten in their last eight league games are currently third in Southern League Premier South table with 48 points from 24 games.

Taunton lead the way with 55 from 26, ahead of Met Police 49 from 24, while Weymouth are fourth with 46 points from 23 games.

So six points would really make the Whites true title contenders.

However, they have already played both sides this season and lost 4-3 at Taunton and 2-1 at Weymouth so it not going to be easy.

Salisbury boss Steve Claridge said: "These two games are massive for us and it will be pivotal for our season.

"If we can get six points we can really close the gap on Taunton, but if we lose I think they will be too far ahead."

On Saturday in the thrilling 4-3 win over Hartley Wintney, Salisbury gave a debut to new signing Buowe Bosma.

The midfielder/defender signed on loan from Coventry City slotted into the centre of defence as the Whites had three centre halves injured.

The 22-year-old played alongside Kane O'Keefe who was injured during the game.

O'Keefe looks set to miss this weekend's game, but the the good news for Whites fans is centre-half Matt Partridge will be back for the Weymouth game.

Fellow defender Elliott Wheeler and Chris Shephard should also return from injury to bolster the Salisbury squad, ahead of the biggest week of the season.

Claridge is also hoping Darren Mullings may also be fit as well.

Last Saturday, in a topsy-turvy clash at Hartley, Salisbury led 2-0 thanks to goals from Lewis Benson and Bosma on his debut. The Row hit back to lead 3-2, before Benson and Dan Fitchett made sure of the win.

Looking back on the game Claridge said: "I would say it was very entertaining and a great three points as few sides will go to Hartley and get a win."

Salisbury's scheduled Tuesday night's game at King’s Langley was postponed as a mark of respect after the tragic passing of their number one fan and club sponsor, Matt Allcock.

Matt collapsed suddenly after attending Langley's game at Weymouth on Saturday and could not be revived.
