Wisbech’s third win

Spalding 0, Wisbech Town 3

THE Fenmen made it three wins from three friendlies with a comfortable victory against big-spending Spalding on Tuesday night.

Simon Mowbray scored against his old club to put Wisbech 1-0 up after 30 minutes when keeper Nick Conroy and defender Glenn Fluff failed to cut out a long ball from Neal Spafford to leave the goal at his mercy.

Wisbech should have had a penalty just before the break when Dubi Ogbonna was brought down one yard into the area by Fluff, but the referee awarded a free kick on the edge of the box and Callum Reed fired it into the wall

Two minutes into the second half Ogbonna, who had scored twice against King’s Lynn, made it 2-0 from a Reed pass.

Reed also supplied a cross to the far post after 50 minutes when Ollie Gale met it with a diving header for a third Wisbech goal.

Tom Roberts , in the Wisbech goal, did have to make one good save in the second half but was never really tested apart from that.

A delighted Wisbech boss Steve Appleby said: “We took our time to get going but did the right things on the night. I thought we looked a well balanced side and really in the end it was a comfortable win.”

Scott Johnson came off inside the first five minutes when he felt his hamstring, but Paul Cousins missed the game with a foot injury and is likely to miss the trip to March on Saturday too. Anthony Reeve and Matt Lunn will be back for the game at the GER.

Wisbech: Tom Roberts, Neal Spafford, Jon Fairweather, Stacy Cartwright, Scott Johnson; Callum Reed, Adam Millson, Rogan McGeorge, Ollie Gale; Dubi Ogbonna, Simon Mowbray. Subs used: Steven Reid, Chris Bacon, Max Mattless, Darren Jimson.
