Wisbech Town manager Dick Creasey says his side has finally got to grips with the United Counties League.
Since joining for the 2013/4 season, the Fenmen have found the UCL a bit of a struggle - they finished a disappointing seventh last season and endured a sluggish start to this campaign.
But things seem to be clicking - Saturday’s 3-0 win at dangerous Oadby Town was their sixth win in their last seven league games.
After a goalless first half, Wisbech’s class shone through with Steven Reid (2) and Matt Lunn finding the net.
The Fenmen find themselves fourth in the UCL, well placed to challenge the top three.
Creasey said: “I was really pleased for Steven. You can never fault his workrate or desire but he had had a couple of indifferent games so I was delighted to see him get the two goals. He’s a really good player.
“We have learnt how to play in the UCL. Sometimes you have to put in a dogged performance and that’s what we did against a side which is good at home on a very sticky pitch.

“We are delighted with the performance and in the second half we got our just rewards.”
Tommy Treacher will be missing for Wisbech’s UCL away day at basement side Long Buckby on Saturday but Paul Cousins, who played last week for the reserves, could feature.
On Tuesday, the Fenmen face a trip to Sleaford Town in the UCL.
Creasey said: “We’re not taking anything for granted. We must make sure we go there and do a professional job.”
