Wisbech Town bounced back from a disappointing midweek defeat at Eynesbury Rovers with a 3-0 win on a bobbly pitch at Sleaford Town.

With midfielders Sam Murphy and Luke Kennedy both unavailable, Adam Millson reverted to his normal central role and there was a first start at right back for Alfie Connor, a recent loan signing from Peterborough United's academy .

Neither side registered a shot on target for almost the entirety of the first period, but it was the hosts who did find the net late in the half with a headed effort that was ruled out for offside.

The pitch and a strong crosswind made it difficult for any kind of flowing football to take place and chances continued to be at a premium at the start of the second half.

The breakthrough finally arrived six minutes after the hour. Liam Adams was brought down just inside the Sleaford box and goalkeeper Sam Vince stepped up to convert his third penalty of the season.

Wisbech's second goal in the 74th minute was again thanks to good work by Adams as his cross was deflected by a defender to Michael Frew, who knocked the ball in at the far post.

Six minutes later, the points were secured as Frew returned the favour to Adams with a low cross which the 18-year-old finished well at the far post under pressure from a defender.
