ON-loan striker Zack Kotwica netted a hattrick as Salisbury FC came from behind to beat Swindon Supermarine in the Wiltshire Senior Cup on Tuesday.

The Whites made seven changes from Saturday’s defeat, and gave starts to Tom Roberts in goal and Charlie Rayfield at right back.

Salisbury could have taken the lead in the opening seconds of the game but Kotwica’s shot did not trouble the keeper.

In an off the ball incident, Wannell appeared to have rolled his ankle and was substituted with development player Josh Sommerton replacing him.

But it was the away side who took the lead in the eighth minute, Rhys Baggridge mistimed his header and forward Josh Parsons ran through and rounded keeper Roberts.

But the Whites got back on level terms just six minutes later, as Claudio Herbert’s pull back found loanee Kotwica who smashed the ball home.

It was the same combination again for the second goal, Herbert this time with a lofted cross into the box and Kotwica towered above the Supermarine defence to head home to give them the lead.

Salisbury continued to press for more goals after the break, with Sommerton and Alex Battle linking up, but without creating any clear cut chances.

The north Wiltshire side then created a few chances for themselves, with Connor Thompson going close.

Kotwica should have had his hattrick goal in the 54th minute, but after being played through on goal, he blazed his shot over the bar.

But just eight minutes later he scored his and Salisbury’s third goal of the game, Eddie Perrett played a great ball through to him, and he finished well smashing the ball through the keepers legs to give Salisbury a comfortable lead. The Whites were then able to see out the rest of the game and book a place in the next round of the competition.
