Wisbech Town skipper Paul Cousins is targeting the FA Vase tie on Saturday, January 19 or the week before at Thetford for an injury comeback.

Centre-back Cousins, who has been sidelined since he tore his calf against Kirkley on December 15, said: “I have seen the physio and done everything he has wanted me to do.

“He reckons the Thackley FA Vase game is where it possibly came from, where it was damaged. I got studded in the calf near the shin bone. I just thought it was a knock and carried on.”

Then during the following week’s game the defender realised there was a problem versus Kirkley and had to be substituted on 74 minutes in the 3-3 draw.

He added: “I’m looking to do something in the warm-up against Mildenhall on Saturday with the physio. I doubt we weill get much training done this week as we have got Ely this Wednesday.”

“It feels a lot better now. I’m a bit older now so it takes a little bit more time!

“I’ve got to get my fitness back as we’ve got a big game coming up. I’m trying to target the Vase game or the one before that.”
