SALISBURY start their quest for FA Cup glory this season with a tricky looking away trip to Thatcham this Saturday in the first qualifying round.

The Whites will have added incentive to impress as the game is being shown live on the BBC Sport website and has the earlier kick-off time of 12.30pm.

Thatcham have an excellent start to the season with four wins and a draw which moved them to the top of the Southern League Division One, the league below the Whites.

The Berkshire side were also in impressive form in the last round when they dispatched Andover New Street 7-1.

These sides have met in the Fa Cup before back in 1991, when the first game in Thatcham ended 1-1 with Salisbury winning the replay 3-0.

Salisbury boss Steve Claridge is taking nothing for granted and said: "We have a few injuries and I am expecting a tough game. It is a potential banana skin and not the easiest of draws."

Last Saturday, the Whites threw away a 3-1 advantage at Tiverton as the home side scored twice in the last 11 minutes.

The home side took the lead after nine minutes from Jordan Baston, but Salisbury were level by the break thanks to Dan Fitchett.

The Whites then took the lead from Darren Mullings just after the hour mark and then Josh Sommerton double the lead.

At this point it looked for once like Salisbury would return from Tiverton with three points, but their hopes were dashed as Steve Colwell and Michael Landricombe scored as it finished 3-3.

Claridge said: "It was very disappointing we were two up and threw it away."
