A late AFC Mansfield leveller foiled the Fenmen's chances of a second Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Division One East away win in a row on Saturday.

Joe Iaciofano was the scourge of the away side by being involved in both of ten-man AFC's goals, which resulted in Wisbech's tenth draw of the campaign.

It leaves Wisbech Town in 14th position with 25 points from 23 matches and Mansfield second from bottom with 22, just a point ahead of basement side Gresley FC.

Mansfield defender Pat Lindley was sent off on 10 minutes after an off-the-ball incident.

Eight minutes later dead ball specialist Danny Setchell sent a ball into the box which forward Michael Frew volleyed into the home met while off-balance.

However, Iaciofano levelled within four minutes following a free kick.

In the second half Toby Hilliard fired over the home bar from close range.

Gary Setchell's troops regained the lead midway through the second period.

Ryan Harnwell raced down the middle and set up fellow sub Alex Beck to strike home.

With just eight minutes remaining that man Iaciofano fed Jordan Annable to secure the hosts' second equaliser.

On Saturday Wisbech Town, who are so far unbeaten this year, continue on their travels at Pontefract Collieries, who sit in third position with 40 points from 23 matches.

Wisbech: Swan; Fairweather, Gaughran, Hart, Keeble; Maddison, McQuaid, Millson, Setchell; Beck, Frew, Hilliard. Substitutes: Gale, Harnwell. Attendance: 75.
