WISBECH Town sprung into life in the second half to keep their promotion charge on course.

Visitors Woodbridge Town arrived late for the game and fielded an understrength side but the Fenman could not break them down in a frustrating first half.

Wisbech took the lead after 53 minutes through Joe Jackson, who put away a cross from the left.

But ten minutes later Woodbridge Town drew level.

Wisbech restored their lead through an unlikely source.

Stacy Cartwright, who had yet to score since he joined the club in September 2010, found the net.

In injury time Chris Bacon finished off a counter attack to secure an important three points.
