The Fenmen were much-changed after boss Steve Appleby released Rogan McGeorge, Deakan Napier and top-scorer Dubi Ogbonna last week. With striker Chris Bacon still missing, it fell to the fit again Darren Jimson to lead the Wisbech line.

But, despite the reshuffle, Appleby’s side were seconds away from securing what would have been a vital Thurlow Nunn Premier Division victory.

Midfielder Adam Millson gave his side a 27th-minute lead at the Elgood’s Fenland Stadium but the Fenmen were pegged back after the break.

Neal Spafford restored the hosts’ lead with what looked likely to be the winner - but Haverhill found their second equaliser in stoppage time to prevent Wisbech from gaining ground on their promotion rivals.
