They were however rewarded after 20 minutes when Nathan Davenport pounced on the Wisbech keeper's mistake and tapped home his first goal for the club.

Foxton sustained the momentum with some clever movement through the midfield and the flanks, however the hosts held on with some dogged defending.

In searching for a second Foxton forced the hosts to chase the game in the second half and as a result Wisbech pushed men forward with Jamie Chamberlain called into action in the visiting goal.

And eventually the hosts got themselves back into the match after 65 minutes, when a low cross into the box fell fortunately to a Wisbech forward who crashed home from four yards.

Foxton defended well after that, as the home side now strove forward, but were rarely troubled with Chamberlain making one decent save from an acute angle.

Foxton tried hard at the other end with several good moves stemming from the middle of the park, but the home team defended well and like the first half, survived a flurry of chances.

Foxton manager Andy Cambridge said: "Wisbech is never the easiest place to go and pick up points.

"We remain unbeaten so far, and coming away from there with a point is a good result for us.

"We played well during the first half, and as expected, we came under a lot of pressure as they pushed forward in the second half.

"However, we couldn't find that second goal, having been on top and made a sloppy mistake for their goal - which they probably deserved.

"It was a good game, and we can have no complaints. The lads are now looking forward to playing back at our ground this week for what promises to be another good game against Mildenhall, having drawn with them three weeks ago."

Foxton: J Chamberlain; Tokely, Ranner, Webber, Clark; D Chamberlain, Ogilvie, Aristo, Margiotta; Davenport, Lawrence. (Subs); Manners, Edwards, Cambridge.
