Salisbury FC supporters may have been fooled that the side had turned a corner this season, but the team were yet again blown away as their up and down season continued.

The Whites fans were buoyed by a professional away win in the FA Trophy at the weekend, against Gosport Borough coming from behind to win 2-1 away.

The results see them through to the next round and a trip to Plymouth Parkway.

This time it was a cold night in South Gloucestershire that was the latest disappointment of the term on Tuesday night against Yate Town.

It only took the home side 9 minutes to take the lead through Tumelty. Salisbury showed some fight to draw level 11 minutes later, Marvin Brooks with the equaliser.

Yate piled on the agony though and led 3-1 at half-time with goals from Rees (30) and Sim-Burgess (40) extending their lead as the teams headed in for half-time.

It didn’t take long in the second half for the Bluebells to extend their lead, only 3 minutes had passed when Harding scored the home side’s fourth of the night.

The home side then poured more misery on Steve Claridge’s men when they scored their fifth.

It was Sim-Burgess who got his second of the game and put the game well beyond Salisbury.

Jake Ball did pop up to grab a late goal back for the away team to bring the scores to 5-2 on 88 minutes.

It was yet another poor showing for Salisbury who now sit 8th in the table having played 14 games.

There is a growing number of Salisbury supporters now calling in to question Claridge’s management and whether the season is already over in terms of a promotion challenge.

It is possibly too early to go that far, but the inconsistency will certainly be a concern for the White faithful.

The Whites return to the Ray Mac this weekend with a visit from Hendon who currently lie 15th in the table and are without a win in 4.

The kick-off is at 3pm.
