SALISBURY will hope to secure home advantage for the end of season play-off semi-final against the Met Police, with a victory against visiting Harrow on Saturday.

To do this they will have to finish third, the spot they currently occupy in the table.The only team that can overhaul them is Met Police, who also have 77 points and their final game is at home to relegation threatened Gosport.

If this happens the Whites will away on Wednesday May 1 (7.45pm), but if they finish third they will be at home.

Looking ahead to the weekend’s game against eighth place Harrow Salisbury boss Steve Claridge added: “It will be nice to get back to playing a decent pitch. We want to win going to Met Police is the most difficult place to go in this league. they know how to play on their pitch so it would be tough, we have a much better chance of beating them if we are at home.”

Claridge was more than happy with his side’s four points over the Easter period, which saw them beat Walton Casuals and draw at Frome.

Claridge said: “We were tremendous for an hour against Walton and this was because I rested players for the Wiltshire Senior Cup final.

Talking about Monday’s game, Claridge was furious with the state of the pitch and said: “It is worst surface I have ever seen, there were cracks all over the pitch. If it had been frozen it would have been postponed. There was no way we could play our style of football on that pitch so it was a good point.
