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.
