Wisbech Town manager Dick Creasey says his side deserves credit for picking up three points while not at their best at Wellingborough Town.

Tommy Treacher’s double and Danny Beaumont’s strike gave the Fenmen a crucial 3-2 win in the United Counties League on Saturday.

Creasey said: “Everyone knows Tommy works really hard but he was his knockers out there.

“That second goal, the way he took it around the keeper and slotted home from an acute angle, was real quality. What people don’t know is he breaks his neck to play for us. He was still working in Sleaford at 1pm.

“We didn’t play that well but we came away with the three points. Talking to one or two people since, they’ve said Wellingborough is a tough place to get three points so we have to be pleased with that.

“We know we can perform better than we did but you’ve got to give the players a lot of credit for digging deep in the second half and getting the win. That’s really all that matters.

“The win keeps us in the mix, we’re happy with where we are at.”

Wisbech face the daunting prospect of three games in a week, starting with a Cambs Invitation Cup tie at higher level Cambridge City tomorrow night.

Creasey says he will use his entire squad over the three games, with all the players set for at least 90 minutes on the pitch.

Creasey said: “Cambridge City are a very good side and are going well in their respective league.

“We are going there as massive underdogs but we’ve entered the competition to win it. We’ll give it a big go in the aim of making the semi finals.”

That match is followed by a home game against United Counties League strugglers Harborough Town on Saturday.

Wisbech won 4-0 at Harborough earlier this season but Creasey says his side will not take them lightly.

He said: “We will approach the game no different to how we approach any other game. We will give them the respect they deserve.

“It’s a game everybody expects us to win, and we want to win.”

The final game of their three match run is a Knock Out Cup tie at Peterborough Northern Star on Tuesday night.
