Wisbech Town 2 Woodbridge Town 2

THE Fenmen moved closer to securing their Premier Division survival after claiming their fourth point in as many days.

And just like Saturday's 2-1 win at Norwich United, Wisbech relied on a late goal when they drew with Woodbridge on Tuesday night to move eight points clear of the Norfolk club, who occupy the final relegation spot.

It was the sensational Stuart King who grabbed the point as Wisbech came from behind twice.

The midfielder burst through the centre of the park to lob the Woodbridge goalkeeper with a first-time shot in the 88th minute.
