Wisbech Town are in a hole ahead of UCL Premier Division South clash against Kimberley Miners Welfare
Wisbech Town boss Alex Street admits his side are in a ‘hole’ ahead of Saturday's clash against Kimberley Miners Welfare at Fountain Fresh Park.
The Fenmen are third from bottom of the United Counties League Premier Division North after 13 games and only five points from safety after a fifth successive league defeat, 1-0 at seventh-place Sleaford Town at the weekend.
With Saturday's visitors only two points ahead of Wisbech in the table, the game is becoming a real six-pointer.
Street said: "We are still building but how much time does it take as we are in a bit of a hole?
"I don't think the teams we are playing are much better than us, they are just finding a way to get the win.
"The fans deserve a performance on Saturday and we need a result."
Bermudan defender Harry Twite will miss the game through international duty.
At the weekend, Wisbech went close twice in the second half through Amir Ward and Michael Frew, but the only goal of the game came from a Sleaford corner after 37 minutes, taken by Jacob Fenton and headed home by captain Charlie Ward.
"I'm very critical when it comes to restarts and if you don't concede from those you'll always have a chance of getting something from the game.
"Kern (Miller) has put his hands up for losing his man and we've conceded a sloppy goal.
"Our second half performance today was outstanding, we were putting bodies on the line, throwing players forward and putting Sleaford under pressure.
"We should have been doing that from the word go, not just in the second half."
Wisbech v Sleaford: George, Kacirek, Twite, Miller (Williams 45 mins), Mattless, Challinor, Allen, Murphy, Frew, Hart, Ward. Subs: Howe, Reed, Wilson, Wallace.
