It’ll be a brave man who puts a bet on Wisbech Town to clinch FA Vase match win

THE Fenmen head to Gateshead with the whole of Wisbech behind them - apart from the town’s Ladbrokes store which has made Dunston UTS clear favourites.

Steve Appleby’s troops are embarking on a 400-mile round trip for an FA Vase Fourth Round replay as they look to keep their Wembley dream alive.

Two coach-loads of supporters (around 100 fans) will be there to give their beloved Wisbech full backing - something the bookmakers haven’t.

Dunston are 1/3 to progress to the last 16 of the national non-league competition, with Appleby’s Fenmen priced as rank 6/1 outsiders.

A Ladbrokes spokesman said: “Dunston are clear favourites - they got to the last eight last year and could go top of their league if they win their games in hand.

“It seems a lot of people have the same opinion as we had to cut Dunston’s odds for last weekend’s game - we would have paid out a substantial amount more had they beat Wisbech.

“They were favourites then - and we believe they are even more so now.”

A draw (after 90 minutes) is priced at 100/30. You can get 10/1 on a Fenmen 1-0 win and giant odds of 50/1 for Dunston to be leading at half-time and Wisbech to have won by full-time.

If successful, Appleby’s Fenmen will host Bethnal Green United in the next round on February 11.
