WISBECH Rugby Club's first team coach Steve Drawbridge has called on the people of the town to make Harecroft Road a fortress tomorrow when his side takes on Campion for a promotion place.

Victory would see the Fenland club secure a place in the London Division North East Four.

Campion finished second in the Essex League Division One, losing just four matches, while Wisbech secured the runners-up spot in the Eastern Counties Division One.

Drawbridge said: "Home advantage could be massive for us, and for the last two years teams have found Harecroft Road a very hard place to come.

"The players a fired up, full of confidence and raring to go and I'm hoping for a big crowd to cheer the lads on and make the place a fortress."
