New March signing Ryan Lennon was forced to miss Tuesday's victory over Eynesbury Rovers through injury, but manager Ashley Taylor hopes to have him back fit for tomorrow.

Sam Murphy remains on the sidelines with ankle ligament damage.

Taylor said: “We want to try and go as far as we possibly can in that competition and the FA Vase. Obviously there are financial benefits to that as well, and as we know every little bit of income can help us.

“We want to give it a good go, and we’re looking forward to playing in the FA Cup on Saturday.”

Meanwhile, Wisbech go into their clash off the back of a 2-1 defeat at Pinchbeck United on Wednesday night.

Leon Mettam's young squad have picked up three points from their opening two United Counties League Premier Division North fixtures.
