WISBECH Town let three points slip from their grasp in the dying minutes on Saturday, with a freak goal from one of the league's whipping boys.

Whitton United came to Outwell with the worst defensive record in the Ridgeon's Premier League, conceding 59 goals in their first 14 games.

And it looked like the Fenmen could make that statistic much worse by the end of Saturday, when Scott Cubberley scored with a 20-yard screamer after just four minutes.

And a swirling wind in the Fenmen's favour throughout the first half should have meant more goals. However, Wisbech's ground passing was poor and several crosses behind the Whitton defence could not be met by Fenmen strikers.

In the second half - with the bitter wind in Whitton's favour - the visitors were mostly on top but failed to break down the Wisbech defence until the 89th minute.

Whitton substitute Jemel Fox swung an ambitious cross into the Wisbech penalty area, but the wind caught the flight of the ball and it drifted over keeper Chris Horton's head into the top corner of the net.
