WISBECH boss Gary Setchell is in bullish mood ahead of this weekend's home league clash against Mildenhall, despite failing to win a point in his six games in charge.

While Setchell's previous defeats have been against sides in the top half of the table, Saturday's loss against 12th placed Histon Reserves will be seen as a major blow.
It was the Fenmen's 10th successive league game they have failed to win.

They are now third bottom and facing a relegation scrap.
Scott Cubberley struck the woodwork in the first half and Jason Pease did the same in the second, but goals from Jordan Wilson, after 20 minutes, and Daniel Phillips, in the final minute, won the match.
Setchell said: "It was definitely a game we were looking to win and it's a case of three points dropped.
"We were below our usual level and didn't deserve to get anything.
"But I see January and February as crucial months for us and I'm confident we can turn things around, starting, hopefully, with a win against Mildenhall on Saturday."
Setchell will have Anthony Reeve, Safian Bennour, Stuart King, James McManus and himself returning from suspension.
Striker Ricky Muggleton left the field injured on Saturday but is expected to be fit for the Mildenhall match.
Seventh-placed Mildenhall have traditionally been seen as title challengers and have won their last two games by a 2-1 scoreline but suffered a 4-0 home defeat against Histon Reserves on December 9.
Setchell said: "Mildenhall are a strong side but I can't see why we can't beat them. Apart from Lee Day, who is recovering from a knee injury, we will be at full strength. We still have a lot of quality and self-belief in the squad."
The Fenmen then play a local derby at home to King's Lynn Reserves on Tuesday night followed by matches against Wivenhoe, Walsham-le-Willows and Felixstowe and Walton.
Setchell said: "These are all crucial games. They are all winnable and we need to pick up as many points as we can.
