The Fenmen were looking to put a turbulent week behind them - one that saw them fall to defeat to Northampton Sileby Rangers and manager Brett Whaley resign - but were forced to take a point at the Elgoods Fenland Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Creasey, who returned to the Wisbech hot seat for a fourth spell on Thursday, issued a rallying cry to his players to give the home fans something to cheer about before their meeting with Harborough, but the clash got off to a disastrous start when Barves Gladman fired the visitors ahead after 15 minutes.

Harborough taking the lead seemed to spark the Fenmen into life, and they were soon level thanks to Stuart Cobb’s sixth goal of the season.

Neither side could find a winner in a scrappy encounter, and Wisbech were held to their ninth draw of a frustrating United Counties League Premier Division season.
