Wisbech Town must start turning draws into wins, says boss Dick Creasey.
The Fenmen extended their unbeaten run to 14 games last night with a 2-2 draw at high-flying Deeping Rangers, but Creasey says his men must start taking three points rather than one after their second straight league draw.
“We’re on a good run at the minute but when we look at it and analyse it, there have been too many draws,” he said.
“If we had have won some of those games then we’d be a lot closer to the top four, which is where we want to be – and where we should be.
“We’re 14 unbeaten which is ok, but I’d rather win one game and lose one than draw two.”
Alex Beck rescued a point from the Fenmen’s trip to their local rivals after Deeping had recovered from falling behind to a Billy Smith strike.
“Deeping have been on a good run recently, so I think a point is a good result,” Creasey said.
“It’s a place where we’d have liked to have got the win, but I think if you’d have offered us the draw before the game we’d have taken it. We can’t be too disappointed.”
Creasey, however, was disappointed at Wisbech’s failure to beat Wellingborough Town last Saturday.
Adam Millson popped up with a late goal to preserve Wisbech’s record at the Elgoods Fenland Stadium, but boss Creasey says it was a game his side should have won.
“If the Deeping game is a point earned, then the Wellingborough one was definitely two dropped,” he said.
“We should be winning games like that and it’s another one of those games that we’ll probably look back at and regret not doing better in.”
Eighth-place Wisbech kick off a run of three games in a week with a trip to Newport Pagnell Town on Saturday afternoon (3pm).
They then host Sleaford Town on Tuesday (7.45pm) before another home clash with Northampton Sileby Rangers on January 21.
