SALISBURY were left to settle for a point against Weston-super-Mare in Southern Premier South, after a goalless draw at the Ray Mac, writes Andy Munns.

Sadly, the game between Steve Claridge’s side and Weston was a scoreless game which lacked chances and talking points.

One highlight came before the game when the club announced a signing familiar to the supporters, as Abdulai Bell-Baggie, who played five times for Salisbury City in 2012, once again joined a side playing at the Ray Mac.

Bell-Baggie, who has had spells with Tranmere, Stockport County and Poole since leaving, signed from Havant & Waterlooville in time to make his second debut in Salisbury colours.

The first half saw the game often bogged down in midfield and both keepers were able to keep their gloves clean, with neither being forced into anything too demanding.

The second half continued in much the same fashion, and it was not until the game passed the hour mark when Salisbury keeper, Patrick O’Flaherty, was called into the action, pushing an Alfie Moulden shot around the post.

Marvin Brooks was presented with Salisbury’s best chance of the game but was only able to head over the bar on 70 minutes, following good play from both Charlie Davis and Sam Ashton.

There was very nearly some late drama with Samuel Avery having the chance to steal all three points, but O’Flaherty was up to the task and ensured that the game ended as it started.

Boss Claridge may be pleased to take a point from the game given Weston’s higher league position but will surely want his side to have a more cutting edge.

This Saturday, Salisbury travel to Hartley Wintney for their next league fixture (3pm).

The Whites will be without Harry Baker, who has moved on from the Ray Mac to seek more first-team opportunities.
