Wisbech Town made it five league wins on the bounce.

Having had three dual-registered 'loan' players recalled by their parent clubs in recent weeks, manager Dick Creasey called up 18-year-old midfielder Kieran Hamilton from the reserves to bolster his squad.

Neither side created much in the way of clear-cut chances during a lacklustre first half, although it was the Fenmen who went closest, Billy Smith seeing a shot blocked by the Harborough keeper whilst Sam Murphy blasted a spectacular volley just wide.

A slight tweaking to the formation at half-time was the key to unlocking the packed Bees' defence. Six minutes after the break, Michael Frew crossed into the box for Alex Beck to slide in his 11th goal for the Fenmen.

The narrow lead never looked in danger but, given the slippery conditions, it was no bad thing when Smith was brought down inside the area in the 76th minute. Sam Vince swapped goalkeeping for goal-scoring as he beat his opposite number from the penalty spot and sealed the three points.

The introduction of Hamilton for his first team debut was the only other moment of note in a game which won't live long in the memory but took the Fenmen up to seventh in the table.
