Wisbech Town will be hoping to capitalise on the league’s top two facing off on Saturday.
United Counties League leaders AFC Rushden and Diamonds visit second-placed Holbeach United, while fourth-placed Wisbech travel to bottom-half side Oadby Town.
However, Creasey’s men will not be taking the game lightly – Oadby have won their last two games, including an impressive 2-0 win over AFC Rushden and Diamonds.
Wisbech go into the game in top form – they hammered Harborough Town 7-0 on Saturday.
Goals from Danny Beaumont, Adam Millson, Tommy Treacher and Scott Johnson saw them race into a four-goal lead within 16 minutes.

Wisbech manager Dick Creasey said: “I think the players knew I wasn’t overly impressed with our previous two performances. We had a chat before the game and I asked them for a response.
“It was not the best opposition but we can’t do anything about that – we can only look after ourselves.
“We have a very difficult game against Oadby – who are strong at home – so we need to make sure we get the three points.
“Then we can have a look to see how the other teams have got on.”
Wisbech’s main injury doubt is Jon Fairweather, who injured his abductor in the Harborough game.
