Wisbech Town were denied a stunning win at leaders AFC Rushden & Diamonds by an equaliser deep into stoppage time.

In front of a crowd of 930 people at the Dog and Duck stadium, the Fenmen made the perfect start.

In the 11th minute, Luke Wilson met Adam Millson’s free kick with a glancing header which flew into the top corner.

The Fenmen found themselves under siege late on but it looked like they would hold firm.

However, in the 98th minute, Brad Harris’ header from a corner just crept over the line to send the home crowd into raptures.

The gap between the two sides battling it out to be United Counties League champions remains four points, with seven league games to play.

Wisbech’s next game is at home to AFC Kempston Rovers in the UCL on Saturday.
