Welling limp to season finale with 3-0 loss to Salisbury

PUBLISHED: 11:48 22 April 2014 | UPDATED: 11:48 22 April 2014

Three first-half goals put Welling to the sword against Salisbury on Easter Bank Holiday Monday.

The hosts took the lead inside the first 15 minutes when Elliot Frear was afford too much space and was able to get a low shot off that took several deflections, ending up in the back of the net.

One goal became two, three minutes later when Jamie White’s shot squirmed under Jamie Turner, just creeping over the line.

And on 20 minutes, proceedings went from bad to worse for Welling, whose defence were at fault for all three goals.

Jack Obersteller’s weak header back to his keeper allowed White to stroke the ball home after nipping in between the two Welling players.

While Welling’s defence were left short all too often, The Wings’ attack gave Willem Puddy plenty to think about in the Salisbury goal as they tried to find a way back into the match.

But as time drifted away Welling began to look to Saturday - their last game of the season - at Park View Road.
