Wisbech Town manager Dick Creasey priased his side’s character as they bounced back from shipping a late equaliser to claim a crucial 2-1 win over Huntingdon Town on Saturday.
Matt Lunn put the hosts ahead on 26 minutes - the ball broke to him in the box, he shimmied past a defender and stroked a low shot past the keeper into the bottom corner.
Huntingdon levelled through Chris Joneson 83 minutes but, three minutes later, Danny Beaumont rose highest to head Nathan Horne’s cross into the goal and give Wisbech a crucial win.
Creasey said: “I was delighted with the win. We just about deserved it. We showed a lot of character to bounce back after conceding on 83 minutes. It was a good cross by Nathan and a brilliant header by Danny.”
The Fenmen, who have shot up to fourth in the league, travel to big spenders Holbeach United (second) on Saturday.

“They are big spenders and have a far better squad than us but we go there with a little bit of confidence.
“We will not lie down against them. We’ll make it a hard game for them and anything we come back with will be a bonus.”
Wisbech could be boosted shortly by the return of talismanic defender Paul Cousins following successful knee surgery on Saturday.
Cousins’ return would be like having a new player, Creasey said.
He said: “Hopefully now the problem’s gone away and he will be back in the squad quickly.
“When he returns, it will be fantastic news for the club. It will be like having a new player and he will play a massive part in the second half of the season.”
