SALISBURY FC start a run of big games this weekend, as they look to remain clear of the pack in the Southern League Division One West promotion race.

The Whites currently occupy the second automatic promotion place with a seven point gap back to third placed Evesham, who have played two more games.

These sides clash this weekend at Evesham and Salisbury will be keen to maintain the points difference - if not increase it.

Then on Tuesday night, the Whites are on their travels again to early pace setters Swindon Supermarine.

They dished out an 8-0 thrashing of visiting Slimbridge on Tuesday night, to move up to sixth and into the last of the play-off spot.

A week on Saturday, is Salisbury's next home game against leaders Taunton.

Last weekend, the Whites game against Winchester City was postponed due to snow, but they will look to carry on the form they showed a week earlier, when they won 3-1 at Bishop's Cleeve. Owen Howe scored twice and George Colson netted the other in that victory.

The Whites have been in good form away from home with 11 league wins out of 15 this season and boss Steve Claridge said: "We are in a great form at the moment and I feel the pressure is on the other teams to catch us. We know we have some tough games coming up, but the boys are ready for them."
