Wisbech Town boss Brett Whaley has called for more of the same when his side travel to Desborough in the United Counties League on Saturday.

The Fenmen recorded an impressive 3-0 victory at Wellingborough and Whaley would happily take a repeat scoreline as his side look to continue their climb up the table.

Wisbech have now taken seven points out of a possible nine and Whaley said: “We’ve got a lot of games coming up against sides around and below us in the table.

“They are all scrapping for points, so it’s about us going and doing a professional job and getting wins.

“Saturday continues our run of away fixtures, but our form seems to be a little bit better away from home.”

Goals from Rob Hughes, Billy Smith and a penalty from Adam Millson enabled the Fenmen to win at their relegation-threatened hosts.

Whaley, whose side were due to host Hardwick in the semi-finals of the Cambs Invitation Cup last night, said: “For the first 20 minutes against Wellingborough we started brightly and did all the things we’d been working on.

“Our first goal came at a good time before we tried to over-complicate things a little bit. We then had another good spell and picked it up again.

“At 2-0 in front it was all about game management and keeping a clean sheet. We saw it through and our third goal was a bonus.

“At this time of year on boggy pitches and against sides who are fighting for everything, its just about picking up results.

“We haven’t done it often enough, but after picking up seven out of a possible nine points hopefully it’s onwards and upwards from here.”

A fine late save from goalkeeper Aaron Butcher ensured that Wisbech didn’t concede for the second time in three outings.

“It was a really good save,” admitted Whaley.

“Butch has had his critics but he is a really good goalkeeper. He loves keeping clean sheets and is doing well.

“As a group we don’t want to concede. We defended well at Kirby and have also done it well here.”

Wisbech Town Reserves continued their cup progress when booking their place in the ChromaSport and Trophies Chairman Championship Shield final after a 1-0 win at third-placed Moulton Harrox Reserves.
