Weston-super-Mare beaten by Dan Fitchett hat-trick for Salisbury City
A Dan Fitchett hat-trick condemned Weston-super-Mare to their sixth Blue Square Bet South home defeat of the season as they were beaten 3-0 by a Salisbury City side smarting from a midweek home defeat.
The win keeps City second in the table on goal difference, while Weston are still in sixth spot.
The visitors took control early on, with Theo Lewis going close with a free-kick on seven minutes, while skipper Brian Dutton had an effort scrambled off the Weston goal-line.
Home goalkeeper Lloyd Irish made a superb save to deny Fitchett at the expense of a corner before the City striker opened his account on 39 minutes, volleying Chris McPhee’s right-wing cross over Irish’s head.

Just before the interval, Weston’s Dale Grubb had an effort blocked on the City line by Dutton.
Weston made a bright start to the second half as Ross Stearn forced a full-length save from goalkeeper Will Puddy and then Ashley Kington had a header on target.
However, City were soon back in control with substitute Ryan Brett lobbing an effort on to the Weston crossbar with Irish beaten and Ricky Welland had two shots in quick succession blocked by Brett Trowbridge.
James White was put in acres of space by Chris Giles’ pass on 81 minutes, but Irish blocked the shot.
Four minutes from time, Fitchett robbed Weston’s Naby Diallo on the edge of Weston’s penalty area and scored easily. In added time, Fitchett completed his hat-trick with a sublime shot on the turn that left the home defence standing.
