Wisbech Town I 3 Havering 2
BRAD APTED'S winner ensured Wisbech fought off the toughest test to their 100 per cent record so far this season.
Unbeaten Havering dominated the first 20 minutes and Wisbech goalkeeper James Sheppard saved a penalty on to the post.
Wisbech kept out a string of short corners before Havering passed the ball around from a corner rather than shot directly and went 1-0 up.

Sam Markille equalised from close range after Apted's pass from a short corner.
The second half was blighted by some over-zealous umpiring which saw nine yellow cards.
Wisbech took the lead with another Markille goal from an Apted pass but Havering took advantage of some sloppy defending to equalise quickly.
Apted's shot from the top of the circle went through the goalkeeper's legs and sealed the points.
Wisbech travel to National League Premier outfit Southgate for the third round of the HA Cup on Sunday.
A coach is organised and a few places remain.

Wisbech Town II 2 Alford 1
A FINE performance saw Wisbech end league leaders Alford's 100 percent record.
A change of formation worked well for Wisbech and every one of the twelve players put in a tremendous amount of effort to secure the victory.
Tom Peggs scored a fantastic individual goal to put Wisbech 1-0 up but Alford equalised before the interval.
Wisbech defended resolutely and Karl Belding grabbed the winner 10 minutes from time.
It was an excellent team effort but Aaron Cobb, Peggs and Matt Waite showed tremendous work-rate and commitment, while Sam Dunn had a solid game at sweeper.

WISBECH continued their unbeaten start to the season with a well-earned victory. Wisbech moved the ball around with great skill and Tim Wong gave them an early lead but the hosts equalised midway through the first half.
James Williams then intercepted the ball and ran through and lifted the ball just over the keeper to put Wisbech 2-1 up.
In the second half Wisbech battled and scrapped to ensure victory.
Man of the match for a heroic performance at the back with an injured arm was Gavin Plume.
