Wisbech captain Charlie Baxter admits his side was left “demoralised” after a 5-2 home loss to fellow strugglers Blueharts on Saturday.
But he says his players must get over the disappointment and break their Premier A duck this season when they travel to Bedford on Saturday.
In the basement battle, Wisbech fell behind to two soft goals but bounced back through Will Denny’s deflected shot and David Hodson’s rebound.
The hosts had chances to take the lead but could not take them. They were made to pay for their wastefulness by the visitors who bagged three more goals.
Baxter said: “We built the game up all week and drilled into the players how important it was so when it doesn’t come off it’s deflating and demoralising.

“At 2-2 we were on top. If we could have got a third goal, we would have run away with it. The positive is the performance of our youngsters who have really stepped up.
“We’ve got to forget about the game, pick ourselves up and train hard so we can get something out of the Bedford game.”

There was also disappointment for Wisbech ladies who lost 3-0 at top of the table Dereham in East Women’s Division 1N.
Wisbech started positively and dominated possession but Dereham took the lead from a ruthless counter attack.
Despite several chances in the second half, Wisbech could not find the back of the net and conceded two more goals.
Wisbech hope to get back on track when they host Watton on Saturday, 1pm start.
