PREVIEW: Wimborne Town V Salisbury FC

Football returns to the Koolpak Stadium this Saturday, with Salisbury FC making the short trip to Cuthbury, as Wimborne look to continue their remarkable home form, having won 9 of the last 12 and being undefeated since September on home soil.

With the top four opening up a 7 point gap from the chasing pack, the fixture schedule has sent them all on their travels this Saturday – Taunton at Harrow, Weymouth at Frome, Salisbury at the Koolpak, and Met Police at Tiverton.

If results go in The Whites’ favour, they could find themselves just 3 points behind leaders Taunton with a game in hand. Meanwhile, at the other end of the table, just 9 points separates 20th placed Tiverton from 8th placed Merthyr.

Salisbury themselves arrive in good form, having lost only once in their last 15 outings. A 3-4 defeat at home to Weymouth, being the only disappointment in a run that includes victory of the same scoreline over Wimborne back in early December. Though they have dropped points on the road to Kings Langley, Swindon Supermarine, Walton Casuals and Hendon this season.

The Magpies who had lost ten of their seventeen league fixtures before that trip to the Raymond McEnhill Stadium, have won seven of their fourteen games since, and feature one of the leagues in form sides. Prior to the disappointment on Tuesday night, Wimborne had scored three goals in each of their last four games, until the midweek defeat by, ironically, a three goal margin.

Toby Holmes is only a goal behind Brandon Goodship in the scoring charts, who netted midweek against Hendon to move up to 28 for the season, and who has been rewarded with a call up to England C.

We look forward to welcoming all supporters this Saturday. Please note, due to increased demand, we advise those travelling by vehicle to arrive early, or use additional parking at Queen Elizabeth School or the Public car park on Westfields close.

Fancy a flutter this Saturday? With our home record speaking for itself, BetVictor have given us odds 31/20 to continue that run with a win over Salisbury.
