RELEGATION looms for St Neots after they were given a hiding by a well-drilled Wisbech side that always looked the better team.

The final score was 10-2 to the hosts, who must have been stunned into action when Saints opened the scoring through Ian Moor following a penalty corner.

However, all hopes soon faded as Wisbech ran in four goals before the break.

Allan Knox nicked a consolation strike for the Saints who were completely outclassed in the second half and the red card to Wayne Tunnah and yellow card that Tim Brewer collected did nothing to help the cause.
