Swindon boss says Salisbury are 'best side' in the league

Swindon Supermarine's manager reckons Steve Claridge's Salisbury are the best side in the Southern League South and West.

Despite fifth-placed Salisbury trailing leaders Hereford by 24 points, their 6-1 victory over Swindon on Saturday left Dave Webb admiring their class.

Webb told the Swindon Advertiser: "Salisbury are on a fantastic run and have got quality players all through the side and they showed their class.

"They are in the play-offs and will undoubtedly be there at the end of the season. If they continue to play like that, I wouldn’t want to be another side in the top five when the play-offs come around and have to play them because, for me, they are the best side."

Hereford beat Supermarine 3-0 away from home in October, with the two sides meeting again at Edgar Street this coming Saturday.

"Hereford were very good but Salisbury were as good, if not slightly better.

"We weren’t at the level that it takes to compete with them and that’s the one thing my players have to take from the game."
