Wisbech Town FC face an uphill battle to finish runners-up in the United Counties League going into Saturday’s final game of the season.

The Fenmen should be approaching full strength going into the must-win ChromaSport & Trophies UCL Premier Division game at lowly Northampton Sileby Rangers.

Neal Spafford and Nick Bishop are back from suspension while Tommy Treacher and Nathan Horne are available.

A 1-0 defeat at Cogenhoe United last weekend meant Wisbech Town were knocked off second spot by in-form Thurnby Nirvana (report and table: page 107).

Fenmen boss Dick Creasey said this troops can only concentrate on their mission: “We’ve got to go to Sileby and do what we’ve got to do.

“Someone told me Sileby need to win to stay up. If that’s the case then it will be a hard game.

“Thurnby are going to Eynesbury which will also be a hard game.

“Overall we can do only what we can do and hope Eynesbury can do us a favour.”

A recent slip-up in results appear to have denied Wisbech a better than even chance of second spot, after a superb surge in the New Year saw them win 13 league games in a row.

Creasey added: “No-one’s told the lads that more than me.

“I would love them to get at least a runners-up medal to get a reward for the second half of the season.

“Maybe there will be another twist – who knows?”
