Wisbech Town 1 - 0 Holbeach United

Away | 25 April 2018 | Attendance: 260

Wisbech won this hard-fought local derby with a goal in the 22nd minute, scored by former Holbeach favourite Jamie Stevens.

Jamma rose highest at the far post to meet Danny Setchell's deep corner and found the net via deflections off Adam Jackson and Rick Drury.

Following a sharp shower during half time which delayed the start of the second half, the home side got going and saw several chances either hit the frame of the goal or hacked clear by a defender.  Paul Bastock was the busier of the two keepers and pulled off some important saves to maintain the 16th clean sheet of his Wisbech career, exactly half his game for the Fenmen.

Wisbech had the ball in the Holbeach net twice more, but both were ruled out narrowly for offside.

Attention now turns to the visit of Oadby Town to the Elgoods Fenland Stadium on Saturday.  The Poachers were beaten 3-0 on Wednesday night by title rivals Newport Pagnell Town, who are at Holbeach at the same time.
