Wittering got revenge on Peterborough ICA who had knocked them out of the PFA Cup at the quarter final stages, with an emphatic 4-1 win in the semi-final of the Chromasport Intermediate Shield.

ICA were the first to threaten and the Wittering goalkeeper had to be smart to make a good save after a good turn and strike from the edge of box by the visiting forward.

ICA took the lead after 15 minutes when a wind assisted corner was misjudged by Craig Smee who ended up handling the ball into his own net.

Wittering equalised immediately when Billy Nairn played in Nathan Steele who finished from 10 yards.

Wittering took the lead just before half time after an Eddie Winks tackle went to Billy Nairn who crossed for Nathan Steele who took one touch and then buried the ball into the corner of the net.

The second half started brightly for Wittering.

The home side kept pressing forward and limited ICA to few opportunities.

Wittering added a third after 60 minutes when Steele put Billy Nairn through to finish well.

Sub Adam Ledger then scored the goal of the game when he latched onto a Nathan Steele flick-on which Ledger hit first time on the half volley to lob the ICA goalkeeper from 25 yards.

Manager Winks said: “This was an excellent win for us. We got revenge, plus we find ourselves in the final of the league cup.

“We knew what to expect from ICA, we never did ourselves justice the last time we played so today was extra pleasing as we were strong and we out battled ICA who are a strong side.

“We could have won by a couple of more goals but cup games are about winning and that’s the main thing.

“This is a great achievement for us as every game we 
have played in this cup has been against division two teams.”
