Dick Creasey is hoping Wisbech Town can return to form at the Elgoods Fenland Stadium this weekend.

The Fenmen are yet to experience victory on home soil in 2017 and have taken just one point from a possible nine so far.

They welcome Leicester Nirvana on Saturday (3pm), and Creasey has identified the game as an opportunity to their home record back on track.

“We’ve got to get ourselves prepared,” he said.

“We haven’t won at home for too long. Two defeats and a draw isn’t good enough and it’s cost us dearly.

“There’s only us that can put that disappointment out the way.

“We went to Nirvana and put in a really disappointing performance earlier in the season and came away with a 1-0 defeat after dominating the game.

“We’ve got to remind ourselves about that but to me, it’s not too much about the opposition, it’s about ourselves.”

Wisbech got back to winning ways last weekend courtesy of a 4-0 success at Kirby Muxloe.

Teenage sensation Harry Limb, who has recently returned from a trial at Premier League Swansea City, struck a hat-trick and an early Billy Smith free-kick saw the Fenmen ease to victory, but Creasey admitted he was disappointed to not see his side hit the net even more.

“At half time I wasn’t over happy. We were 3-0 up and coasting after 17 minutes and never really looked in any danger of conceding,” he said.

“I thought it was a game where we could have gone on and filled our boots. In all honesty I’m really disappointed we haven’t done that.

“We had four one-on-ones we didn’t score, missed a penalty and nearly conceded.

“We’ve won the game and won both halves but I just wish at some stage we’d take one of these teams to the cleaners and that’s what the really good sides do.

“We’ve got no divine right to do that but we had the chance to do that last week and it disappoints me.

“We seem to get in a mode when we get two or three-nil up and think ‘this will do us,’ and if I’m honest, the second half was quite boring.

“We could have been talking about seven or eight goals. We got four, and you only get three points whether you get four or eight goals, but I’m really disappointed we didn’t finish the job off.”
