SALISBURY'S poor run of results continued as they limp towards the end of the season, writes Andy Munns.

Over the Easter weekend, the injury-ravaged side succumbed to two more defeats, first at home to Dorchester Town and then away at Gosport Borough, both ending 1-0.

Dorchester arrived at the Ray Mac still not assured of their status in the Southern League South Premier for next season as they battle near the bottom of the table, whereas Salisbury are safe and drifting toward the end of the season.

A fairly even first half saw Devon Arnold unable to take the best of the home side's chances and Steve Claridge’s men were behind early in the second half.

Just three minutes after the restart, Dorchester scored the only goal of the game when Archie Stanley found himself in space inside the box after good build-up play between him and Harry McGrath. Stanley was able to finish well beyond Marcus Beauchamp.

The goal did not spark Salisbury into any sort of sustained response and the game drifted to its conclusion and another home defeat.

The loss was compounded by Calvin Brooks being stretchered off with what appeared to be a serious knee injury.

On bank holiday Monday, an even further depleted Salisbury side travelled to Gosport to take on a team who themselves had been on a run of four games without a win.

Claridge was only able to name two substitutes and forward Dan Fitchett lined up in defence.

Gosport grabbed the only goal of the game midway through the first half, Dan Wooden the man with the strike.

Salisbury did manage to get the ball in the back of the net, only to see Sam Ashton’s strike ruled out for offside after he latched on to a good through ball from Antonio Diaz.

That leaves Salisbury five games without scoring a goal and only picking up one solitary point in those matches as they head into the final game of the season this Saturday at the Ray Mac.

Kings Langley are the guests as the Whites will be hoping to end the season with a win.
