- Credit: Archant
Southend broke the deadlock early while Wisbech where still asleep.
However, Wisbech woke up, and could only score one goal during their period of good play, when captain Jason Mallett hit the ball into the ‘D’ and Gary Freear nicked the ball into the goal.
Soon after Southend scored two quick goals after some poor defending to take a 3-1 lead at half time.
After the interval Wisbech’s defending was tight but one lapse in concentration led to them conceding the forth.
This kick started Wisbech into gear and they started to play some good passing hockey putting the pressure on.
