Wisbech Town have a UCL Knock Out Cup final to look forward to after coming from 2-0 down to beat Desborough Town on penalties at the Waterworks Field.

The home side took the lead in the 32nd minute, through Aaron Davies, and 12 minutes into the second half doubled their lead through Will Arnold.

But Town pulled one back in the 74th minute when Adam Millson crossed to the far post for sub Curtis Knight to knock in his first senior Wisbech goal. The 88th-minute equaliser was a spectacular overhead kick by Michael Frew.

In the shootout, each side scored their opening kick. Wisbech scored their second and third but Desborough's second was well over and their third was saved by Sam Vince. Billy Smith sent the keeper the wrong way to earn Wisbech a place in the final against former manager Brett Whaley's Yaxley at Peterborough Sports' PSL Ground on Bank Holiday Monday May 1 (3pm).
