Match Report

Injury and unavailability forced Wisbech Town manager Gary Setchell to field four teenagers for the trip to Wellingborough Town but his side still managed to win 3-1.

With both ‘keeper Paul Bastock and defender Jordan Yong picking up injuries in the midweek draw with Yaxley, Peterborough United youngsters Lewis Elsom and Aaron Hart were drafted in to fill those positions.

Having had the better of the first half, Wellingborough took the lead in the 39th minute through Jack Wisniewski but the Fenmen were level just two minutes later. The Doughboys’ keeper punched the ball clear from the edge of the area but only as far as Josh Ford who sent the ball back over the defence’s heads from 30 yards out.

The second half saw a reversal of fortunes as Wisbech dominated and went ahead in the 63rd minute as Billy Smith headed in Kieran Hamilton’s excellent cross at the far post.

The points were secured eleven minutes later as Josh Ford scored his second of the game with a curling effort into the top corner.

Former Norwich City and King’s Lynn Town midfielder David Bell was introduced as a sub just after this and his experience helped to nullify any thoughts of a Wellingborough comeback.

Goalscorers:  Josh Ford (41, 74); Billy Smith (63)
