WISBECH will win the league if they beat Castor & Ailsworth at Harecroft Road and Ramsey slip up on Saturday.
They are 25 points ahead of Ramsey with two games remaining in the Tucker Gardner League.
Ramsey are in action away at Waresley knowing defeat will all but hand Wisbech the league.
If both sides win then Wisbech will have to beat derby rivals March, who upset them earlier this season, at The Avenue in the final match of the season to guarantee title glory.
Captain Alan Burton said: “It would be brilliant to win the title at home. This is a real club, it’s not just about the first team.
“It would be good to bat first so we can get more bonus points and make the game with March easier.
“But all we can do is control our end of their bargain.
“Castor is a good team and we need to turn up and perform at our best.”
Wisbech will go into the Castor game full of confidence after an emphatic 10 wicket win over Camden at Harecroft Road.
Gary Freear was Wisbech’s star player, taking 4-7 with the ball as Camden were dismissed for 142 then hitting an unbeaten 79 as Wisbech romped home without losing any wickets.
Burton chipped in with 59 not out as Wisbech knocked off the modest target within 25 overs.
He said: “The bowlers did well as a unit and Freear came on against batsmen who were looking to be aggresive, which is when he is at his best.”
WISBECH’S Harecroft Road will host Cambridgeshire’s four day Minor Counties final with Cheshire which starts on Sunday,
Play begins at 11am and all spectators are welcome.
