WISBECH Town are back in action tonight when they travel to Cambridge’s Abbey Stadium to meet Cambridge Regional College in a Ridgeons Premier Division game.

The Cambridge side which is effectively Cambridge United’s reserves were beaten 2-1 at home to Haverhill on Saturday and in fact have won just one of their last four league games as they have slipped to sixth on the table on 36 points the same as Wisbech..

But Fenmen men boss Steve Appleby is certainly not taking anything for granted. “It will be a tough game at Cambridge and if we play like we did on Saturday then we could be well beaten.

“Having said that we are capable of much better and we do seem play our best football against the better teams.”

Appleby has no injury problems and he could even add Jon Fairweather and Billy Smith, who were with the reserves on Saturday, to his squad. Matty Lunn also an absentee on Saturday, should be available too.

Aaron Turner has been loaned out to Cambs League side Lakenheath for four weeks to help give him some match fitness.

Appleby explained: “He was injured before Christmas and then went on holiday so he needs to get fit gain and but I expect he will be back with us in three weeks.

Wisbech face another big game on Saturday when they are away to seventh placed Hadleigh who are ahead of Wisbech on goal difference but have played two games more. Two wins and Wisbech should be firmly cemented in the top six.

Former Wisbech player Jackie Gallagher has confiremed that a Peterborough businessman had made inquiries about buying the club twomonths ago but has heard nothing since.

There were rumours last week that someone was trying to buy the club but no offers have been received so far.
