Fenmen manager Dick Creasey praised his side who he said “couldn’t get over the line” on Saturday.

Two second half errors in defence gifted the home team the three UCL Premier points, while Adam Millson scored a 90th minute consolation.

Creasey said a key moment was key Wisbech Town defender Paul Cousins going off with concussion.

He added of the centre-half and assistant boss’s bang on the head: “It happened just before half-time.

“He said he would be okay but within two or three minutes he’s on the floor.

“That was a worry, and he came straight off. The referee and Spaff (physio Shane Spafford) had a look at him and said he can’t continue.

“That just disjointed us. Knowing Cousi he’ll want to put on the shirt (for next Saturday’s FA Cup tie) and we’ll look at that later in the week.

“Our general performance was top-drawer. I know we lost and we’re hugely disappointed.

“We couldn’t get over the finishing line.

“The signs are there but our start in the league has not been good enough.

“They had three shots on target and scored from two. In the last 45 minutes we pulverised them but couldn’t score.”

Creasey will have to look at his defensive options with Nathan Horne banned for the FA Cup trip to Norwich United and Stacy Cartwright leaving for Holbeach.

Wisbech: Jordan, Fairweather, Cousins, Spafford, Horne, Smith, Reid, Millson, Bayliss, Cobb, Ford.
