SALISBURY could go top of the Southern League Premier South this weekend.

The Whites, who did not play on Tuesday night, travel to Harrow Barrow as the in-form side in the league.

They were due to play Poole Town on Tuesday night, but the game was postponed due to The Dolphins’s FA Trophy fixture being moved to Tuesday evening.

Harrow Borough sit 18th in the league and just three points outside the relegation zone.

If Salisbury win and Gosport Borough were to lose to 11th placed Hayes and Yeading, the Whites would go top of the table.

Dutton said: “Harrow will be a tough game. They are a bit raw but they are a tough side.

“Hopefully we can go there and produce something and give ourselves a chance to reach the summit.”

Despite having lost just one league game all season, Dutton is not getting carried away on his side’s expectations.

“We finished 15th last season, and 15th the season before, so you can see the progress we are making, but we just have to take each game as it comes”, he said.

But Dutton told the Journal he is “delighted” with his side’s run of form.

Referring to the Poole Town postponement, Dutton said he feels “deprived” when they miss matches, and is looking forward to his side having another opportunity to show “what a good team we are”.

He said: “Even in the Slough game [in the FA Cup], we are unlucky to go out and we dominated that game.

“All the signs are here for a successful team and a successful season”.

Salisbury Journal: Devon ArnoldDevon Arnold

Since the Whites last played, it has been announced that Devon Arnold’s contract will be cancelled “by mutual agreement”.

A statement on the club’s website said: “The 21-year-old forward is hungry for game time which can’t be guaranteed right now at Salisbury FC. Both parties understand the importance of minutes on the pitch for Devon at this stage of his career to aid in his development.”

Manager Brian Dutton said: “Devon is a player who needs to be starting matches and clearly became frustrated with the lack of game time he’s had this season.

“He’s been very unlucky picking up a bad injury in pre season followed by another injury soon after.

“Due to the scintillating form of both Josh Hedges and Noah Coppin I couldn’t guarantee the game time he wants and needs.

“We wish Devon luck with his next chapter”

Dutton added: “All of us at Salisbury FC will be watching your future with interest and wish you luck. You have a great family behind you that will be with you every step of the way.”
