SALISBURY put back-to-back wins together for the first time since September after following up the weekend’s 1-0 win against Farnborough with a 1-0 triumph at Wimborne Town.

The two wins came within five days of each other and started with a good victory against promotion-chasing Farnborough at The Ray Mac, their first home league win since November, writes Andy Munns.

Darren Mullings’s goal was enough to see off the 10 men of Farnborough in a game that started at a fast pace, with both sides creating chances in the opening few minutes. Salisbury were defending well and managing to hold off the visitors.

The visitors were reduced to 10 men on 29 minutes when Mitchell Parker was shown a red card for a late challenge on Charlie Kennedy, this allowed Salisbury to take more control of the game, playing patient, possession football until the interval.

Salisbury eventually made their man advantage pay in the second half when, after 73 minutes, Mullings was on hand to apply the finish after Jack Turner had done well to get something behind a powerful shot from Devon Arnold.

Farnborough pushed for a leveller but were unable to test Patrick O’Flaherty in the Salisbury goal and the home side managed to hold on for the win.

Salisbury then travelled to Wimborne Town on Tuesday evening and wrapped up another three points with another 1-0 success, this time against the team propping up the league.

Salisbury were out of the blocks the fastest and it only took five minutes for the only goal of the game to arrive. Charlie Davis hit a lovely strike that beat the keeper on its way to the back of the net.

Salisbury had more chances to extend their league but a combination of some good saves from former Whites stopper Gerard Benfield and poor finishing saw the game end with the solitary goal.

The game ended up being a bit of a battle of attrition with neither keeper truly being tested in the second half.

Salisbury travel to south Wales for their next game on Saturday to lowly Merthyr Town, who sit just one place above Wimborne at the bottom of the table.
