SALISBURY extended their unbeaten run to four games in the Southern League Premier South over the Bank Holiday weekend, which puts them third in the table level on points with leaders Poole Town.

This was after the Whites drew at Swindon Supermarine 2-2 last Saturday, as Dan Fitchett and Warren Bentley were on target and then Monday afternoon beat Yate Town 3-2 with Toby Holmes scoring his first Salisbury hat-trick.

This Saturday, the Whites are on travels to second placed Tiverton.

Manager Steve Claridge said: "We know it is going to be a difficult trip, as we have have not had a particularly good record down there, but we will give it our best shot."

Talking about his side start to the season, Claridge said: "Considering we lost the first game we have since got two and half points a game, which I have to be pleased with and puts us off the top only on goal difference.

"But we have been a bit lucky and I know this is going end. Last season we had less points at this stage, but I felt we the performances were better.

With no game on Tuesday night, Claridge will take the opportunity to watch Thatcham, who will entertain the Whites in the first qualifying round of the FA Cup on Saturday, September 7.
