Wisbech face old boss after league defeat

Wisbech Town failed to bounce back from their midweek FA Vase exit, going down 4-1 at Harborough Town in the United Counties League Premier Division.

The Fenmen actually started the game in positive fashion and only a very good save from home keeper Glen Giles prevented Harry Limb from opening the scoring in the eighth minute.

The home side went ahead in the 18th minute after the ball was given away cheaply in the corner and Billy Shepherd beat Adam Wright with a first-time shot.

Shortly afterwards, Billy Smith was hauled down in the box, but appeals for a penalty were waved away.

The opening five minutes of second half saw three goals in very quick succession. Harborough went 2-0 up in the 47th minute through Barnes Gladman, but from the restart Limb saw his cross find the far post top corner via the keeper's glove to make it 2-1.

You may also want to watch:

Two minutes later, Luke Wilson was rather harshly penalised for handball inside the box and Harborough captain Ben Williams scored the resulting penalty.

With the Fenmen chasing the game, it was no surprise when the home side added a fourth goal in the 54th minute, substitute Alex McMillan scoring from a rebound off the post.
