Wisbech Town FC must concentrate on the league following their FA Cup exit and face two tough games in four days.

The Fenmen on Saturday are at home to Huntingdon Town and on Tuesday they travel to Deeping Rangers in the ChromaSport & Trophies United Counties League Premier Division.

Manager Steve Appleby said: “They are both good sides and both finished in the top six last season.

“They will be two tough games. The league is the priority. The chairman and the club look for us to do well in the FA Cup, which is why we’re extremely disappointed.”

Wisbech, who have maximum points from their two UCL matches so far, missed out on pocketing £1,500 following the weekend’s FA Cup defeat at Swaffham.

Appleby sees the immersion straight into two tricky league fixtures as a benefit and a remedy for any hangover from the cup defeat.

He added: “We’ll just crack on. We’re still looking for signings but we are not going to do anything rash.”

Winger Callum Reed is unavailable on Saturday but is back for Tuesday.
