Joint bosses Paul Cousins and Scott Johnson's sharp managerial learning curve will be tested again tonight when Wisbech Town entertain in-form Deeping Rangers.

The Fenmen's three-game unbeaten run – which included Saturday's comfortable 4-1 home win over Long Buckby – has helped them move up to sixth in the United Counties League Premier Division. However, their opponents this evening have not tasted defeat in the league for a mammoth 14 matches and sit just one point behind league leaders Spalding United.

Deeping hammered Wisbech 4-1 during the final days of Steve Appleby's reign and Cousins insists he and his colleague are continuing to understand the nature of their jobs with each passing day.

'We've been hot and cold and we do need to be more consistent,' said Cousins, who played alongside Johnson at the weekend.

'We've often played well in the second half of matches but we've got to start games how we finish them. Being players, and old school ones, Scott and I always know how to prepare ourselves. But it's not about ourselves anymore.

'We've got to make sure all of our 14 lads are prepared right. We've learned that warm ups are really important and the way we prepare on a matchday as you've got to be ready from the first whistle.'

Ex-Wisbech defender Stacy Cartwright is set to return for the first time with his new club Deeping.
