Josh Ford, Stuart Cobb and Danny Beaumont (2) scored as the Fenmen beat Harrowby United 4-1 on Saturday, while Billy Smith bagged a brace in Tuesday night’s 2-0 win over Boston Town.

Manager Dick Creasey, who challenged his side to improve their United Counties League form, said: “I was certainly pleased not just with the wins but the manner of them.

“No disrespect to Harrowby but it could have been 10-1 if we had taken all our chances.

“Boston was a different game altogether. They are probably one of the best sides we’ve faced this season. Billy Smith got two good goals and we deserved the win.”

Wisbech’s ranks have been bolstered with the signing of promising 21 year old defender Luke Wilson from Boston Town.

Creasey said: “He’s a good lad and a good addition. He’s a tidy little player who will fit into the squad well.

“Paul Cousins is struggling with a knee injury so Luke (Wilson) provides more cover for us across the back. I’m looking forward to working with him.

“With Luke’s addition, our squad is back up to 16 players. I’m happy with that. I keep drumming into the players that we have a decent squad so we just need to believe in each other.”

Wisbech are 10th in the United Counties League, four places below tomorrow’s opponents. Creasey expects a physical game but is confident his players can rise to the challenge.

He said: “Desborough are a typical UCL side who work hard, with lots of hustle and bustle.

“They have added to their squad recently and we are expecting another tough game, but I hope we can come through it and get three points.”

Wisbech will be missing goalkeeper Lea Jordan, who is best man at his brother’s wedding, and Danny Beaumont.

But they will welcome back Matt Lunn and Nick Bishop. Wilson could also make his debut.
