Midfielder Danny Setchell gets goal back for the Fenmen
Wisbech Town FC lost their Evo-Stik NPL Division One East basement battle 2-1 at home to bottom side Gresley on Saturday.
The visitors scored after nine minutes and were gifted a second goal on the half hour after an attempted throw out by the home goalkeeper hit a defender.
Midfielder Danny Setchell got one back for the Fenmen just before the break with a diving header.
The second half remained goalless despite the Fenmen’s best efforts. Toby Hilliard hit the post late on.
The result leaves a congested bottom of the table which sees 15th-spot Wisbech Town on 28 points and 20th-position Gresley on 25.
Last night (Tuesday, March 19) the Fenmen travelled to eighth-spot Cleethorpes Town.
