Wisbech Town assistant Dear praises the club’s strength in depth as unbeaten run continues
WISBECH Town assistant manager Chris Dear praised the club’s strength in depth after the Fenmen progressed to the league cup semi-finals on Tuesday night.
Wisbech made three changes from the side which won at Hadleigh United on Saturday but still dominated their quarter-final clash with Kirkley & Pakefield.
Extra-time goals from Jon Fairweather, who excelled after replacing Simon Flanz at right-back, and Matt Lunn secured a 3-1 victory. Ash Stevens, who was used as a sub on Saturday, put Wisbech in front as the rampant hosts threatened to run up a cricket score before the break.
Dear said: “I think we made hard work of it but the performance for the best part
of 70 minutes was again a very good one which followed on from the last two or three performances.

“The important thing tonight was to get the job done which keeps hopes alive of some silverware this season. The big thing for us at the moment is that winning is becoming a habit.
“We showed that whatever side we put out we are more than a match for anybody in this division. We’re level-pegging with Kirkley in the league so they’re obviously a good side.

“Even though we made two or three changes, at times we tore them apart. We’ve actually got a squad of 15 or 16 players who are all equal.”
Saturday’s 3-0 triumph was the Fenmen’s third league win in a row. Goals from Andy Furnell, Lewis Thompson and a penalty from Flanz secured the commanding victory.
