Long Buckby will be aiming for some swift revenge when they travel to Wisbech Town on Saturday - just a week after they were beaten by the same side at Station Road.

In a quirk of the UCL Premier Division fixture list, high-flying Wisbech were the visitors to Buckby last weekend, and went home with all three points after a 4-1 victory.

The Fenmen climbed to second in the table thanks to a dominant first half display at Station Road.

Tommy Treacher put the visitors ahead after 13 minutes, rounding off good work by Matt Lunn and Luke Wilson.

Adam Millson scored the next two for the Fenmen after 18 and 21 minutes, his first a header from a Lunn cross and his second from the penalty spot.

Danny Beaumont scored Wisbech’s fourth from a Lunn pass a minute into added time at the end of the first period.

Buckby improved after the interval with Muzi Nduna-Ndlovu scoring a 68th minute consolation, but the home side failed to convert several other good openings.

The defeat leaves Buckby rock bottom of the premier division table.

Long Buckby team: Oliver Manuel, Ashley Knights (Michael Yeates), Jaime Curicelle, Ben Wilson, Elliott Herbert, Rytan Merrey, Dan Worton (Ed Kostiuk), Jean Dakouri, Muzi Nduna-Ndlovu, Nkosi Mzungwana, Amadeus Clements (Stevy Dedje).

WOODFORD UNITED

WOODFORD United will be hoping for a boost in the UCL Division One on Saturday when they travel to 10th-placed Thrapston Town.

Adam Knight’s men have struggled for form since the turn of the year, and on Tuesday night they were beaten 2-0 at Rothwell Corinthians.

The defeat means the Reds, who were without a game last weekend, are a lowly 14th in the table, with not a lot left to play for this season.
