Vintage display ensures Bath victory

Bath City 2 - 1 Salisbury City (Blue Square South)

Bath City taught Salisbury City a lesson at Twerton Park this afternoon. A brace from Paul Murray helped Bath to victory.

Midfielder Craig Rocastle got Salisbury off to a flyer by scoring a powerful effort from the edge of the area on 7 minutes. Journeyman midfielder Paul Murray then equalised for Bath in the 27th minute with a long range curling shot.

Murray scored what proved to be the winner for the home side in the 53rd minute with a screamer from the edge of the area. With Salisbury staring at defeat, there was controversy as full-back Christopher Wylie then had a penalty shout turned down.

Attendance: 1067

First of the double-header out of the way with a decent showing at home. This puts us 3rd, and only a point behind Chelmsford and Braintree. We should leapfrog Braintree too if we win against them in a couple of days' time. Chelmsford could still stay ahead though. We need them to lose or draw at least one game out of the remaining two to claim the title.
