After 120 minutes of football failed to find a goal, Mildenhall missed their first two penalties, with Gareth Simpson's shot well-saved and then substitute Paul Miles shooting well over.

Successful conversions from Wisbech's Luke Kennedy and Andy Lodge followed, before Wayne Goddard gave the visitors hope.

Martin McNeil made it 3-1 and when Coren Hardy pulled one back, Mildenhall were relying on a miss from Stuart Cobb, but the midfielder made no mistake.

- Mildenhall will be battling with Sherborne, of Division One of the Toolstation Western League, for a place in the last 16 of the FA Vase on Saturday. The match, at Recreation Way, starts at 3pm.
