Town boss Seb Hayes admits late slips are proving costly to his team.

Huntingdon were undone by a last-gasp goal for the second successive Saturday when losing 2-1 at fellow United Counties League Premier Division top-six hopefuls Wisbech Town.

Hayes admitted: “We were winning at Thurnby Nirvana until the last minute of our previous game and we were on course for a very good draw at Wisbech.

“That is four points which have slipped through our grasp due to conceding late goals and it is obviously something we need to stop.

“It really hurt to come away from Wisbech with nothing after being the better team.”

Huntingdon fell behind midway through the first half to a Matt Lunn goal that stemmed from a controversially-awarded free-kick.

But they were on top for much of the contest and deservedly levelled when Chris Jones struck from the edge of the box with 12 minutes remaining.

But a pleasing point turned into a disappointing defeat as fourth-placed Wisbech struck again in the dying moments through Danny Beaumont.

Huntingdon’s recently-recruited striker Charley Sanders has joined higher-level Stamford AFC on a dual registration deal.

Hayes is preparing to dip into the transfer market after making an approach for Peterborough Northern Star utility man Danny Barker.

The left-sided player is well known to Hayes who had stints coaching at Star and Stamford team Blackstones, where Barker has also served.

Hayes added: “We are in a period of transition and we’re looking to strengthen whenever we can.”
