Wisbech were under the pressure for most of the first half and the University were unlucky to score more goals. Gilly Dunn pulled one back for Wisbech just before half time.

The team stared the second half very well with some good play from the defence and the forwards, but just could not score that second goal. Shelley Jones had a great chance to win the game in the last few minutes of the game, but the Uni keeper made some very good saves.
