Wyberton continued their unbeaten November with a hard-fought 2-1 away win at Immingham Town.

Pat Kacirek and Ben Jaques netted the all-important goal as the Colts moved up to fourth in the Balcan Lighting Supplies Lincolnshire League, while keeper James Doughty made some vital interventions to aid his side.

“It’s a great achievement for the lads to remain unbeaten this month,” said manager Joe Greswell.

“On paper it was probably our toughest run-in, but the boys have been brilliant.

“Having a settled side now has helped and having back old faces in Ben Jaques and Nicky Frost has really added quality.

“(Immingham) in the past have usually been a real banana skin for us and we knew it would be tough.

“They probably feel unlucky not to get anything from the game as they finished strongly, but we missed a few chances too, which could have made our afternoon a bit easier.”

Wyberton knew it was going to be a very tough away day but they started the brighter with the front three looking very lively but creating no clear-cut chances.

As the half moved on Immingham grew into the game, Doughty called into action as he smartly saved a free kick.

The breakthrough came just before half time as Curtis Revell found himself one on one with the hosts’ keeper.

Revell’s shot was saved but Kacirek was there to tap home.

The second half started much like the first, with the Colts having a lot of the ball but failing to making pressure count.

Just as Immingham were finding their feet, Wyberton made it 2-0 on the hour mark.

This time Revell made himself space to get a shot off, Ben Jaques there to guide the ball into the net.

Doughty was called into action again as he made a fine double save to make sure Wyberton kept their lead intact.

Immingham cut the deficit with 10 minutes to go when a free kick wasn’t cleared properly and a strike from the edge of the box cut through a packed penalty area and into the net.

“Overall, I’m very happy again and it’s given us a bit of breathing space from the bottom of the league,” Greswell added.

“It’s important now we kick on. It’s been a good month but we’ve achieved nothing yet.”

Wyberton travel to Boston premier Division side Spilsby Town on Saturday in the Lincs Junior Cup (KO 1.30pm).
