Home midfielder Danny Setchell netted in the 49th minute opener which was his first goal for Wisbech Town in open play.

However, Vaughan Redford replied in the 58th minute with a penalty, to go with his prolific spell in the Pontefract home fixture; while Gavin Rothery netted the winner two minutes later.

It means after a promising festive spell, Wisbech are falling further into the relegation pack following their second successive league 2-1 home defeat.

Attendance 203.
