Fenmen on target for fourth

WISBECH are in line for a fourth place finish in the Ridgeons Premier Division but will have to collect three points at Clacton on Saturday to stay on track.

Two successive wins against Norwich United and Kirkley put them in fifth place and they now trail fourth placed Mildenhall by six points but do have two games in hand.

Manager Steve Appleby’s target from early season was a top six finish as he has had to put together almost a new team this season.

There have been some disappointments along the way with the inconsistency, but the Fenmen fans can rightly already look forward to next season with great hopes.

Matt Lunn will miss the trip to Clacton because of work commitments and Simon Flanz is also nursing an injury.

But apart from these two Appleby will have a full squad to choose from.

Appleby said: “We have to go there looking for three more points. Top six was the target but we will just keep trying to get as high as possible, and if we can finish in fourth place we will have had a very good season.”
