The ten-men Fenmen scored three second half goals without reply to cement their seventh spot in the ChromaSport & Trophies UCL Premier.

They were one short for the entire second period after Kieran Doherty was sent off for what joint boss Dick Creasey described as “a mad 20 seconds”.

Wisbech went into the lead via Doherty in the 20th minute but the defender then quickly turned from hero to villain when he received a red card in the 44th minute.

Rangers had equalised in the 28th minute through Lee Thompson.

Callum Reed struck a minute after half-time, Stuart Cobb notched his first goal since returning to the fold in the 69th minute and after James Tricks came on in the 65th minute, Matt Lunn added a late fourth.

Creasey said: “Kieran had a mad 20 seconds and got into an altercation with one of their players, and got himself sent off. The argument is there that their player should have been sent off too.”

He added: “I thought we weren’t good enough in the first half but the second half was a stroll in the park.

“We scored three really good goals. We never looked like having problems and could have scored more. It was a productive day.”

Cobb and Reed entered at half-time and Creasey said of the former: “If Callum’s goal had been on ‘Match Of The Day’ they would have been replaying it. It was 30 yards straight into the top corner.”
