Wisbech St Mary stopped the rot last Saturday - with their just their second point since August.

Arran Duke’s men collected a welcome Thurlow Nunn League First Division draw in a 2-2 deadlock at Debenham LC.

The returning Nick Davey and James McManus hit the Saints goals in a confidence-boosting result.

“I was really pleased with the performance at Debenham,” said Duke. “We competed very well against a decent side who are having a good season.

“The result should bring some confidence back into the squad, which we can use as a platform to kick on from now until the end of the season.

“Nick came back into the side and looked really sharp, which was a big boost for us. There are plenty of positives to take from the game.”

Saints will now target a first win for five months when they travel to Holland FC tomorrow, 3pm. All four of their league victories this term arrived back in August.

Duke added: “We want to try and build on the Debenham point and have a real go at taking all three points at Holland.”
