Match report: Whites vs Boreham Wood
Darrell Clarke and his men were looking to quickly bounce back after a 2 nil defeat against Boreham Wood at the weekend, with an improved performance absolutely crucial as they head towards the end of the season.
Saturday’s match, despite the scoreline, was a relatively tight affair with the Whites creating a number of chances for themselves – Boreham Wood, however, provided the cutting edge and better finishing.
The first half proved to be a scrappy, hard-fought 45 minutes, with the Whites showing grit and determination – clearly the defeat at the weekend did not sit well with the team. Manager Darrell Clarke opted to start the match, but substituted himself for Charlie Losasso after picking up a knock.
This proved to be a crucial event in the match for the Whites, as Losasso took advantage of a Whites free kick to smash the ball into the back of the net and put the visitors ahead after 58 minutes.
The lead was short-lived, however, as the well-travelled Boreham Wood striker Omer Riza equalised just six minutes later, transforming the match again into a tight battle which saw Robbie Matthews receive a yellow card towards the end of the match as the Whites tried to clinch another goal.
Against difficult opposition, at a lonely stadium with 255 fans in attendance, the Whites did well to bring a point back to Salisbury, and fans will certainly feel the performance was improved from Saturday.
Salisbury have now collected 40 points in total with a number of matches still to go before the end of the season, including home ties against high-flying Welling United and Sutton United.
After a tough season that has included a record-breaking FA Cup run, the Whites will be looking to take as many points as possible from the rest of the games to ensure a stable finish.
