Two early goals ended a five-match winning run for Deeping Rangers.

Wisbech Town upset the United Counties League form book to make progress in the Knockout Cup on Tuesday night.

Deeping went into the first-round tie at the Fenland Stadium straight after their best performance for 12 months, having thrashed Harborough Town with a five-star display on Saturday.

But they never recovered from Wisbech’s blistering start.

Jon Fairweather and Harry Limb fired the Fenmen into an early 2-0 lead.

Limb struck again in the second half after Scott Mooney had pulled a goal back.

Deeping will be aiming for a fifth successive Premier Division win at Cogenhoe United on Saturday.
