Wisbech’s unbeaten home league record ended to leave them fighting a relegation battle

WISBECH lost this season’s unbeaten home record against promotion contenders Norwich on Saturday and are now firmly entrenched in a regulation battle.

Fly-half Will Pettit sliced through the visitors defence to score the game’s opening try but Norwich fought back in the second-half to secure a hard-fought London Division Three North east victory.

Cliff Humphreys believes the result did not reflect the quality of his side’s perfomance,

He said: “I am so disappointed for the lads to a man they tried their best and certainly on another day their efforts would have been rewarded.

“Perhaps the events of the last couple of weeks has dented confidence and when your luck is against you things just don’t go right.

Humphreys believes his team is good enough to claim a win which would help his side climb the table.

He said: “If we can get our best combinations on the pitch we are a match for any side in the league.

“We need to get something out of December because we have had some knocks this month.”
