Wisbech Town boss Dick Creasey was left bemoaning a disallowed strike after his side dropped points for the first time in two United Counties encounters on Saturday.
Substitute Billy Smith curled in late on to rescue a point from the Fenmen’s clash with Peterborough Northern Star, but Creasey believes his men should be celebrating a third straight win after an even later Michael Frew strike was chalked off by the linesman.
Creasey told the club’s official Youtube channel: “The boys were all saying the goal was onside.
“They all said it couldn’t have been offside from where Michael has run. He was offside when he received the ball but he wasn’t offside when the free-kick was taken.
“But it’s one of those things that we have to take on the chin and move on. We haven’t lost the game and we’re on a bit of an unbeaten run now and we have to continue that.”

The visitors took a one-goal advantage into the break courtesy of Matthew Barber’s early strike, but Smith spared the home side’s blushes after poking home with nine minutes to play.
“I think we did enough in the second half to win the game,” said Creasey. “But we weren’t clever enough and intelligent to break them down.

“They put 11 behind the ball and it’s very difficult then because everything is going on in a confined area. We then change to 3-5-2 to try and get round the back which we had some success with but we just lacked that one thing.”
