Midfielder Danny Setchell's superb 39th minute free-kick equalises but Carlton grab winner with 12 minutes left at rain-lashed Fenland Stadium
Wisbech Town FC were thrown off their game in awful wintry weather on Saturday with long throws leading to both Carlton goals in a 2-1 home defeat.
Midfielder Danny Setchell's superb 39th minute rocket of a free-kick equalised Carlton's opener on 34 minutes, but the visitors grabbed the winner with 12 minutes remaining as 18th played 17th in the Evo-Stik NPL Division One East and rain lashed the Fenland Stadium.
Wisbech manager Gary Setchell said: "It was a dead game; the conditions put paid to that.
"The disappointing thing for me – for all the effort and endeavour we conceded from two long throws.
"It's not as if we didn't know about those long throws.
"I've earmarked before the game where the ball is going to go for those throws.
"We've got six in the area but the first goal was a ricochet and the second was a free header.
"We worked our socks off in the conditions, and scored a great goal before half-time, and to concede from two long throws – you're never going to win football matches defending in the box like that, even if you're Pep Guardolia or Jose Mourinho."

But overall Setchell added: "We've come a long way in the last month.
"It's a tough old table. We'll keep going. We've picked up some good points recently."
