Wisbech Town have yet to win in 2018 after drawing at bottom side Oadby Town.

With talismanic goalkeeper Paul Bastock suspended after last week's sending off in the FA Vase, the man he replaced – Sam Vince – returned for his first game in Fenmen colours since mid-September. Skipper Jon Fairweather was also starting a two-game suspension.

Wisbech went ahead in the seventh minute – a well-worked move involving Michael Frew and Kieran Hamilton set up Alex Beck for his 24th goal of the season. Oadby belied their lowly position by carving out several chances, but Vince saved well with his legs whilst other efforts failed to trouble him.

The home side equalised 10 minutes into the second half through Josh Walsh and were it not for the heroics of Vince, who pulled off some vital saves, they could well have won the game.

Josh Ford was sent off late on after clashing with Oadby sub Liam Baines who was also given his marching orders.
