WISBECH Town player-manager Gary Setchell plans to make several changes to his side for this weekend's Ridgeons Premier Division game at Woodbridge after watching his side produce what he described their worst performance of the season on Saturday.
The Fenmen lost 1-0 at home to Northampton Spencer in the second qualifying round of the FA Vase.
The winning goal was scored from a volley on the hour after Wisbech goalkeeper Alex Street parried out a corner kick.
Setchell said: "We were terrible. It was our worst performance of the season by far. Northampton worked hard but we should be able to break teams like that down and we showed no invention.
"The minimum I expect from my players is 100 per cent effort and I didn't get that. We've been playing well recently but the players need to realise that football is not something you can turn on and off like a tap. They have to be fired up for every game. We were sloppy in the first 20 minutes and never recovered."
Wisbech are now out of the FA Vase and FA Cup.

They beat this weekend's opponents Woodbridge 3-0 at home in the league last month.
Setchell said: "We won't beat anybody if we play like we did on Saturday. I started with the same players that played so well against Norwich the previous weekend so there is no excuse for it.
"I certainly won't be starting with the same team against Woodbridge and I would make even more changes if I could.
