Salisbury beat nine-man Halifax to go three games unbeaten.

The hosts went head when Elliott Frear collected Ricky Wellard's through-ball before firing in from 10 yards.

Halifax striker Kevin Holsgrove was sent off for violent conduct before fellow forward Josh Wilson saw red for an off-the-ball incident.

Luke Ruddick doubled their lead from 18 yards while Ben Wright rifled in from the edge of the area before Ryan Brett's own goal made it 3-1.

Salisbury City manager Mikey Harris told BBC Wiltshire:

Post match: Salisbury City boss Mikey Harris

"Delighted, that's seven points from nine in our last three games.

"The sending-offs change the game and make our life a bit easier but it doesn't mean you've got a right to win the game.

"Three excellent goals as well, and I'm over the moon with our form. We're moving in the right direction."
