Wisbech head coach Leonard Veenedaal is refusing to get carried away with his side’s 42-3 success over Swaffham.
The local lads ended a run of four matches without a win with a swashbuckling performance against the Norfolk outfit, but Veenendaal is already looking ahead to Saturday’s clash with Newmarket (home, 2pm).
“It was a good performance but we know that Saturday will be even harder when in form Newmarket come to town,” he said.
“We have to back it up.
“The guys can be really proud of the performance but it’s only our first win off the back of a four game losing streak and there’s still a long way to go climbing back up the league table.”

“We were disappointed earlier in the season when we lost the away game at Newmarket so hopefully we can put that right.”
Veenendaal’s men secured one of their finest triumphs to date courtesy of braces from Adam Bunton and James Patrick, tries from James Bostock and James Napier and accurate kicking from Mark Laws, who enjoyed a 100 per cent success rate.

“Fair play to the boys,” added Veenendaal.
“They really pitched up and played the way we wanted to play – particularly with the first time tackles.
“They made the tackles very personal and maintaining their concentration for the full 80 minutes.
“There is another 80 minutes to play next weekend and we need no reality check about what is coming.”
Newmarket sit two places above Wisbech in the Eastern Counties First Division having won their last three league matches.
