WISBECH Town’s first game since Steve Appleby’s departure ended in an agonising 3-2 loss at Huntingdon Town.
The Fenmen, under the stewardship of former manager Dick Creasey, were keen to make amends after losing the corresponding fixture 4-0 at the Fenland Elgood’s Stadium two weeks ago.
Wisbech fell behind to the hosts but an own goal brought them back on level terms.
Within two minutes of the start of the second half Wisbech were 2-1 up when Ewan Clarke bravely headed home a great cross from Callum Reed.
But after chances for both sides, Huntingdon got back on level terms and then Paul Cousins handled on the box.
The penalty was converted and Huntingdon held on for the three points.
Wisbech sit 10th in the United Counties League.
