Fenmen lose top spot

Norwich United 0,

Wisbech Town 0

The Fenmen slipped from top spot in the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division as their run of five successive league wins came to an end on Saturday.

It was the first time Steve Appleby’s team have failed to find the net this season in a league game and they are now second, one point off new leaders Mildenhall with Dereham only drawing too.

Appleby said: “I am not sure if it was a point gained or two dropped only time will tell. Damian Hilton has come in and improved the side and not too many teams will win there now this season.

“Having said that we had the opportunities especially in the first half to have won the game. It was more even in the second half, but I can only remember them having two shots at our goal and Pedro did not have a save to make.

Wisbech certainly had chances to have won the game. In the 10th minute Chris Bacon raced clear but shot tamely into the arms of the Norwich keeper.

Then Dubi Ogbonna hit the wood work from an acute angle and missed another good opportunity to score.

But generally Appleby’s side wasted some good build-up play especially from Matt Lunn play with poor decisions in the final third of the park especially in the first half. For instance Bacon took a cross on his chest and was robbed when he should have headed the ball goalwards from eight yards.

Wisbech: Alex Street, Jon Fairweather, Scott Johnson, Paul Cousins, Neal Spafford, Rogan McGeorge, Adam Millson, Steven Reid, Matt Lunn, Chris Bacon, Dubi Ogbonna. Subs used: Ollie Gale, Anthony Reeve, Toby Ogbonna.
