Report by Adrian Lynn

Wisbech fought back after conceding two goals in the first 17 minutes to earn a well-deserved point at the Elgoods Fenland Stadium tonight.

The visitors threatened to blow the Fenmen away in the early stages but Wisbech are a hard-working side and slowly came back into the game.

Wisbech started with a new man in the back four. Sam Gaughran, formerly of Peterborough, Lowestoft and King’s Lynn, was dismissed as the Linnets’ assistant manager on Sunday and quickly snapped up by Wisbech boss Gary Setchell as a replacement for Beckham Kennelly, who will be out for up to six weeks with ligament damage suffered against Sileby Rangers last week. Gaughran was solid at the back and looks a good addition.

Lincoln began at a fast pace and they took the lead after eight ,minutes when Tom Garrick cut in from the left and curled a shot into the top corner.

It was 2-0 after 17 minutes. The visitors cut through the home defence and Matt Wilson was left with a simple task to beat goalkeeper Dan Swan.

But Wisbech slowly got to grips with the game and cut the deficit after 38 minutes. They put together a slick move which ended with Aaron Hart’s chip from the right finding the far corner of the net.

After the break Wisbech had the better of the game and Lincoln seldom threatened the home goal. Ryan Harnwell and Sam Murphy both went close and it appeared that Lincoln would hold on, but with five minutes remaining Harnwell was adjudged to have been fouled in the area and Adam Millson slotted home the penalty to make it 2-2.

There was still time for substitute Tim Nkala to burst through and put his effort just wide.
