Stuart Cobb salvaged a point for Wisbech Town in a scrappy 1-1 draw at Deeping Rangers last night.

It was a different story from Saturday when the Fenmen were on top form to beat Cleethorpes Town 2-1 in the second round of the FA Vase.

Manager Dick Creasey, speaking about the Deeping game, said: “It was a poor game. Unfortunately, seven or eight of our players didn’t have a good night and they would be the first to admit it. It happens from time to time.

“We still got a point and kept our unbeaten record going (three without defeat) so we move on and we’ll look to make up for it on Saturday.”

Josh Ford bagged both goals as Wisbech came from behind to end Cleethorpes Town’s 12 game winning streak.

In the third round, the Fenmen welcome Midland League side Walsall Wood, who they beat away from home in last year’s run to the quarter finals.

Creasey said: “Walsall Wood are a decent side and we just edged it at their place last year. We’ve got to be happy with a home draw.”

Wisbech, who are eighth in the United Counties League, host fourth place Cogenhoe United on Saturday.

Creasey says you shouldn’t read anything in to their last result, a shock 3-0 home loss to strugglers Oadby Town.

He said: “It’s just one of those leagues where everyone’s having strange results. The same has happened to AFC Rushden and Diamonds too.”

The Fenmen will have to do without captain Jon Fairweather, who injured his groin early on in the Cleethorpes game. Nick Bishop will also be missing due to work commitments. Otherwise, Creasey has a full hand to choose from.

Creasey said: “If we rush Jon back he could be out for weeks. He’s a big, big player for us but he will definitely not be involved.”
