Match Preview: Hednesford (H)
Salisbury City go in search of their tenth home league victory of the season when they host Hednesford Town at the Ray Mac tomorrow.
The Whites have been in great form of late, having won their last six matches in all competitions. Second in the league, they will be hoping to keep the pressure on leaders Truro, who host Hemel Hempstead tomorrow.
While an eight point gap remains at the top, were Salisbury to win all three of their games in hand, they would find themselves leading the division. Having scored fifteen goals in their last 3 home league matches, Darrell Clarke’s men have certainly been providing value for money.
Tomorrow’s exciting Zamaretto clash sees the visit of the only team this season to inflict defeat on Salisbury City in the league. The Whites went down 3-0 to the Pitmen in September. Hednesford are promotion hopefuls themselves and occupy 5th spot in the league with nine wins, four draws and seven defeats so far this campaign. Their last outing was an impressive 2-1 win away at Leamington.
Since that defeat in September, Darrell Clarke’s men have put together an impressive run in the league, drawing twice and winning nine. The manager knows that there are no formalities in this league as he spoke to the Club’s website:
“We’re looking forward to the match. The boys did well last week in a derby match against one of the league’s strongest sides. I’ll be looking for them to keep the momentum going into tomorrow’s match. Obviously we lost the last encounter at their place, so we know what their capable of and it won’t be easy but we’ll be looking to keep this good record going and settle the score tomorrow.”
The manager could be without the injured Jason Silver, and Jamie Turley and Kayne McLaggon are likely to remain sidelined with the injuries that saw them fail to feature against Chippenham.
Bank Holiday Monday saw the Whites host the league’s biggest crowd as a fantastic support of 1095 turned out to see them put four past Chippenham. Tomorrow sees Salisbury go in search of an important three points in another crunch Zamaretto home match.
