FRUSTRATED Wisbech player-manager Gary Setchell is itching to get two of the worst results of his managerial career out of his system.
Setchell was looking to a big response to a 5-0 defeat at Needham Market and 6-1 drubbing at Mildenhall Town when Wisbech were due to play at Ely City on Saturday, but the fixture was postponed due to a frozen pitch.
He is now desperate for tomorrow's home match against Newmarket to get the go ahead.
Setchell said: "I had a severely depleted squad for the Needham Market game but the Mildenhall result has left me scratching my head because I feel I had the best squad I've had since I've been manager of Wisbech and we were awful.
"I don't know if the lads didn't look after themselves properly over Christmas but they just weren't at the races.
"We had just been on a fantastic 11-game unbeaten run and we have shown, when Wisbech play well, they win.
