Lethal Reed grabs another goal as Wisbech Town stretch winning run to four games
Ridgeons Premier Division: FC Clacton 0 Wisbech Town 2
WISBECH Town stretched their winning run to four games by strolling to a 2-0 victory over FC Clacton.
The Fenmen followed up Tuesday’s thumping 6-2 league cup semi-final win over Stowmarket Town by cruising to a comfortable win at The Rush Green Bowl.
Callum Reed - who found the back of the net four times in Tuesday night’s win - continued his lethal goalscoring form by putting Wisbech ahead in the seventh minute.
The former Peterborough United trainee lashed the ball home from 15 yards, when the ball broke kindly for him on the edge of the box.

One negative for Wisbech was the loss of their skipper Paul Cousins, who had to be substituted with a groin injury on the stroke of half time.
