An entertaining afternoon at the Ray Mac eventually saw Salisbury eventually share the points with Dorchester Town.
After a small break, due to last Saturday’s postponement, the Whites managed to weather the storm (literally) to get the weekend’s game against Dorchester Town on. After securing their services until the end of the season both Plant and McDermott were named in the starting XI, McDermott returning from an injury.
It was the visitors who broke the deadlock at the Ray Mac when Shaquille Gwengwe burst into the box and fired low into the net. The Whites, having rued their previous chances, began to look for a way back into the game. Just before the half time break they had their chance as Plant was brought down which gave Brandon Goodship an opportunity from the spot! The former Dorchester loanee stepped up and sent Hall in the opposite direction to level the scoring at the break.
The second half saw both sides go at each other. A big chance came for the Whites when they managed to break away quickly following a Dorchester corner. The ball fell to Arnold, who came on at the break, but his effort was blocked on the line to keep the scoring level. On the 85th minute the Whites had turned the game around as McCreadie was quickest to react after Zabeli’s initial effort crashed off the crossbar. Just when you think Salisbury had got back to winning ways you’d be mistaken! In the 5 additional minutes at the end of the 90, Lewis Waterfield found space on the edge of the box following a corner and managed to find the net. With very little time remaining, it was a moment that ensured the points would be shared.
Next up for Salisbury, is a trip up to the capital when they face Hendon on Good Friday (7th April).
