NEAL Docking slid in to grab a late winner for Mildenhall to keep them level on points with Needham Market at the top of the table.

Gareth Simpson gave the home side the lead after he was put through by Wayne Goddard. who then curled home a free-kick to make it 2-0.

Wisbech fought hard to get back into the match and were gifted a goal just before half-time.

Wisbech capitalised on another defensive error to equalise in the 70th minute after Rush mis-controlled the ball.

The winner came in the final five minutes when Louie Farrington played a one-two with Ozzie Foster on the edge of the box before crossing for Docking to slide in.

Assistant manager Wayne Goddard said: "We've got a strong work ethic throughout the team as well as very talented footballers, and that was evident for all to see."
