WISBECH Town boss Steve Appleby says only a win will do against relegation-threatened Wivenhoe Town tomorrow if his team is serious about getting promoted this season.
The Fenmen lie sixth in the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division but have games in hand on all their promotion rivals.
Appleby said: “We’ve put ourselves in a position to be challenging in the league.
“We have to go there and get three points. Draws are no good to us. Basically it’s down to who can have the best run-in this season.”
Chris Bacon’s first-half goal gave Wisbech a 1-0 win over Ely City on Saturday.
