SALISBURY FC manager Steve Claridge is taking nothing for granted as his second placed side travel to Southern League Division One West basement dwellings Bishop's Cleve on Saturday.

The Whites are seven points clear in second spot and on paper this should be an easy three points, but Cleve snapped a four game losing streak with a 4-2 win over play-off chasing Winchester City on Tuesday night.

Claridge said: "We played them earlier in the season at home and drew 0-0 and they certainly to me did not look like a bottom of the league side.

"We have played far worst this season and I expect another tough game. It is not an easy place to go and the pitch is not the best, but at the moment we want to keep the gap we have built up and tick off each game as it comes."

Claridge will be without Chris Sheppard for the trip as he limped off at the end of Saturday's 5-1 win over Slimbridge.

The manager was happy with the result, but not the performance and said: "We were not at our best and could have been 2-0 down, before we scored. There are certainly areas we need to work on."
