Wisbech Town 2 Haverhill Rovers 2 by Steve Esdale

A late Stuart Kingham goal earned Haverhill Rovers a point from their Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division visit to title contenders Wisbech Town.

The hosts’ first goal came courtesy of Adam Millson on 27 minutes when Matthew Lunn side footed the ball low from the left and, with it bouncing over defender Perry Moody’s outstretched leg, Millson had an easy tap in to an open goal.

With the ball constantly coming back towards them Haverhill changed it round after the break and looked a much better side.

They deservedly equalised on 58 minutes when a nice move ended with Marcus Hunt laying the ball of to Jack Wilkinson, who drilled the ball first time, low and across goal to leave goalkeeper Lea Jordan helpless as it went in off the bottom of the far right post.

Against the run of play Wisbech regained their lead in the 73rd minute, Scott Johnson whipping in the ball from deep and on the left and Neal Spafford snuck in at the back post behind the away defence; Spafford’s first time shot was parried by ‘keeper Elliott Anderson but it wasn’t enough to keep it out of the net.

A furious finish saw the away side equalise once more on 85 minutes, Jack Higgs putting a free kick at head height and it being flicked on by Paul Abbott for Stuart Kingham to steam in at the back post and side foot the ball home.

Haverhill also lost Moody with a calf injury, which Spafford was very lucky to not receive a second yellow card for, deep into injury time.
