SALISBURY FC came from behind with 10 men to draw 2-2 with Swindon Supermarine in a thrilling game at the Ray Mac on Monday afternoon.

After a red card for Whites’ Jack Stanley, goals from Dan Fitchett and Daniel Young earned a point in a game that saw plenty of attacking football from both sides.

The Whites, despite dominating some of the early play, could not make the most of their chances, with Stanley forcing a good save out of Swindon goalkeeper Josh Hill after eight minutes.

After a quarter of an hour, Swindon took the lead. Good work by Stuart Fleetwood saw the ball played out wide on the left-hand side to Ryan Campbell, who put the ball into the box, and was headed in by Conor McDonagh.

With his side already 1-0 down, Salisbury man Jack Stanley saw red for a mis-timed challenge on Joe Shephard after 40 minutes.

Despite their numerical advantage, Swindon could not maintain the lead, and Salisbury immediately responded.

Fitchett scored his third goal in as many games so far this season, in added time at the end of the first half, after Luke Hopper crossed the ball to the far side of the box, with Fitchett converting.

Immediately after half time, Daniel Young put his team ahead with a header from an excellent cross from Lewis Benson.

McDonagh grabbed his second of the game on 54 minutes with another header, and from there Salisbury dominated the play, and did not look like the team a man down.

After the game, Salisbury manager Steve Claridge said: “Its déjà vu. Another game we probably should’ve won and haven’t because of circumstance more than the other team being better than us.

"Not the effort, not the quality of our play, but circumstance. And we’re playing with six or seven injuries which make a big difference. It’s just tough for us.”

The draw sees Salisbury sit 13th in the Southern League Premier South.

Next up for the Whites is a trip to Harrow on Saturday.
