SALISBURY FC’s excellent away form continued as they came from behind to beat Slimbridge 5-2.

The Whites have only lost once away from home this season and have now moved up to third in the league.

Lewis Benson gave the Whites the lead going in at half time but the Gloucestershire side scored two in the second half to take the lead.

But with 15 minutes to play, they turned on the style to score four, Danny Young scored the equaliser, Kane O’Keefe then put them ahead, then Benson scored his second and third to complete his hat-trick.

Salisbury started the game the better side, creating plenty of chances but failing to trouble the Slimbridge keeper.

But on 32 minutes, Benson curled his free kick around the wall from 20 yards to give Salisbury the lead.

The Whites continued to dominate the rest of the half with Slimbridge keeper Ollie Hall tipping a Sam Roberts flick over the bar.

The second half started the same as the first with Salisbury on top, although a Micky Bryant cross-shot was spilled but keeper Charlie Searle who was lucky to recover the ball.

Slimbridge equalised on 63 minutes, Sean Lawson played a one-two with Adam Mace, and then smashed the ball home.

Two minutes later, Henry Birkett’s pass found Marley Thomas who feed in Max Harper-Emerson who slotted past Searle from a narrow angle to give the home side the lead.

With 15 minutes remaining, the unmarked Young headed the equaliser at the far post. Three minutes later the Whites took the lead O’Keefe slotting home from close range.

Hall was called into action a number of times to deny the visitors onslaught on the Swans goal. Benson increased the Whites lead on 90 minutes then completed his hat-trick in stoppage time from another set piece 20 yards out, to ensure all three points came back to Salisbury.

The Whites are next in action against Bassett Bulldogs at the Ray Mac in the Wiltshire Senior Cup on Tuesday, October 17 (7.45pm), followed by the visit of Evesham United on Saturday, October 21 (3pm).
