New Foxton signing Adam Stokes looked dangerous throughout up front alongside Gray, but it was Audley who was the greatest threat, and had a further three headers cleared off the line and Wisbech were somehow holding on to the draw.

Foxton defended well throughout, but the missed chances came back to haunt them when with 10 minutes to go, centre half Chris Haynes put through his own net, to give Wisbech three points and leave the Foxton team with a long trek home empty handed.

Foxton are back in cup action on Saturday when they entertain Mildenhall Town Reserves, looking to avenge their 3-0 hammering at Mildenhall earlier in the season.

Foxton: Coates, Gwynn, Flack, Haynes, Audley, Chamberlain, Webber, Aristo, Fields, Gray, Stokes. Subs: Cambridge, Edwards.
