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.
Millson and Treacher both scored again and Billy Smith found the net in the romp.
Tuesday’s knockout cup clash at Peterborough Northern Star was called off due to a frozen pitch.

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.
