WISBECH have nothing to fear ahead of next week's Cambs Invitation Cup final against Mildenhall Town, according to club spokesman Spencer Larham.
The Suffolk side have beaten The Fenmen 3-1 and 6-1 in the Ridgeons Premier Division this season and are three places and 12 points above them.
But Wisbech have had a resurgence of form under Steve Appleby.
They suffered their first defeat in nine games when they went down 2-0 at home to league leaders CRC on Tuesday night.
Goals from ex-Mildenhall striker Robbie Harris, Rory Harper and Scott Cubberley helped Wisbech to a 3-1 home win over fourth-placed Kirkley and Pakefield on Saturday.
Larham, editor of the Wisbech Town website, said: "Mildenhall have some very good players. We know all about Jamie Thurlbourne who played left-back for us for a brief spell last season and Aaron Turner, who used to play at Soham is also a very good.
