Wisbech boss Gary Setchell wants his Fenmen to bounce back at Felixstowe & Walton today after a midweek lesson from 'one of the best Ridgeons League teams' in years.

Table-toppers Lowestoft moved ten points clear of the chasing pack with a 3-1 win at Outwell that left former King's Lynn and Tamworth defender Setchell purring.

“Lowestoft are one of the best Ridgeons League teams there has been for several years and they showed it,” he said.

“We competed well, but we had some key players missing and they had no weaknesses to expose. I had a chat to a few of the Lowestoft lads after the game and apparently Felixstowe have just signed a lad from Colchester and a player from Sudbury - so I'm expecting a tough game.”

We scored a good early goal to get our noses in front and then finished them off to run out deserved winners. We are in good form in general and we want to continue that, but we must not get ahead of ourselves.

“Sides around us will look to keep the pressure on. If we want to stay where we are we will have to continue to concentrate on ourselves and let the rest take care of itself. You don't win trophies in January - there's still a long, long way to go.”
