It’s now a terrific 14 competitive games unbeaten for the Peacocks who gained their 7th Southern League win in a row when they beat Salisbury 3-1 at the Cygnet Health Care Stadium this evening.

In a match of few chances, it was a case of a below-par Town grinding out the three points following an awful first half performance which saw the visitors take the lead after 20 minutes when Josh Wakefield got on the end of a Charlie Davis cross to fire home from a narrow angle. The Peacocks bounced back after the break to draw level on 48 minutes, Ross Stearn netting at the far post from a Toby Holmes pass across the box. Zac Smith nosed the hosts in front after 78 minutes, collecting the ball down the left before drilling a fine 20 yard strike past Patrick O’Flaherty, and the points were secured with two minutes remaining when Lloyd James was pushed over by Charlie Kennedy and Stearn stepped up to steer the penalty into the corner, a result which maintains Town’s 4th place in the table.
