Wisbech Town manager Dick Creasey has called for players and fans to stick together as he attempts to drag Wisbech Town out of their sudden slump.
The Fenmen have crashed to three successive defeats in recent days and leaked 12 goals in the process – a run of results that saw them dumped out of the FA Vase and left languishing in the bottom half of the United Counties League Premier Division table.
And Creasey hopes his side can begin the process of getting back on track when they host Oadby at the Elgoods Fenland Stadium tomorrow (3pm).
Creasey said: “We’ve been totally out of sorts in the last three games and that’s why football is so unpredictable.
“We had a good little run of results, but things changed quickly and we have now lost three games in a row and conceded 12 goals in the process.

“It’s mind-boggling to be honest and I just can’t put my finger on what’s wrong.
“We just need to dig ourselves out of this rut and the only way to do that is by grinding out a win.

“Hopefully we can do that against Oadby, but it will be far from easy as I’ve heard some good things about them.
“But we need to stop the rot and that means we all need to stick together by fighting for each other, fighting for the fans and fighting for the club.”
Wisbech’s nosedive began 10 days ago with a 4-0 drubbing at Mildenhall in an FA Vase first qualifying round replay.
They endured another miserable outing on the road last Saturday when crashing to a 4-1 defeat at Harborough in the Premier Division. Harry Limb hit the Fenmen’s goal.
And they were on the receiving end of an identical scoreline on Tuesday night when former boss Brett Whaley made a successful return to the Elgoods Fenland Stadium by leading his Yaxley side to glory. Jon Fairweather grabbed a consolation for Wisbech in that game.
Creasey also says he is keen to bolster his squad with some new faces - with a striker as top priority - but admits it is unlikely to happen ahead of tomorrow’s match.
