DANNY White’s goal secured Wisbech Town an important three points against Mildenhall Town.
The diminutive midfielder rose highest to head home Callum Reed’s corner on the half hour mark.
The win keeps the Fenmen second in the Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division, one point ahead of Gorleston.
Wisbech started well and caused Mildenhall problems with their sharp passing and good movement.
The hosts had a couple of shots from distance before Matt Lunn spurned the first clear-cut chance of the game.

Chris Bacon won the ball in midfield and charged forward before sliding the ball across the box to Lunn, who did well to turn inside the last defender but shot straight at the onrushing goalkepper.
Moments later, Lunn created some space for himself on the edge of the box and his low curling shot forced the goalkeeper into a smart save.

From the resulting corner, White showed great desire to get on the end of Callum Reed’s well delivered corner and direct the ball into the net.
It was no less than the Fenmen deserved for their dominance.
Wisbech pressed for a second goal and Lunn forced another good save from the Mildenhall goalkeeper before the break.
The Fenmen started the second half strongly with Bacon and Reed having shots from distance but then the game entered a scrappy phase.
As Wisbech’s performance level dropped, Mildenhall gradually eased their way into the game but never threatened.
Wisbech thought they should have had a penalty from a handball but their protests were waved away by the referee.
Adam Millson, who had an industrious game, had a chance to put the result beyond doubt late on but his sweetly struck shot sailed a yard over the bar.
Wisbech’s next game is against FC Clacton at the Elgood’s stadium.
