WISBECH kept their promotion push on track with a comfortable victory.

The tone was set from the first whistle with several harsh challenges and confrontations resulting in a quick yellow card for Spalding.

Wisbech went 1-0 up thanks to Sam Dunn, but conceded an immediate equaliser. Good play through the midfield set up Dunn for his second along with two for Phil Norman, and another two for Jack Bass.

Man of the match was Alex Jones.

THE game started with some good play from Spalding who, despite some heroic goalkeeping from Adam Forder, managed to get two goals without reply.

Wisbech got their game together and were soon level after goals from Tim Atkins and Chris Stanhope.

A second from Stanhope to take the lead sent Spalding over the edge and some foul language and rough tackles knocked the Wisbech youngsters off their stride and Spalding scored three more.
