Wisbech Town boss Dick Creasey has demanded six points from the Fenmen's next two games following their poor midweek display against Yaxley.

Creasey's side were left counting the cost of a poor first-half display in midweek, which saw them 4-0 down at half-time.

Jon Fairweather and Michael Frew hit back in the second half but their goals proved nothing more than consolations.

Wisbech head to Oadby Town this afternoon before welcoming Huntingdon next Tuesday and Creasey is targeting maximum points.

'We've got a couple of games coming up where nothing less than six points is acceptable,' he said.

'We need to start putting wins together and the next two games are a good chance to get back to winning ways.

'Tuesday was a game of two halves, and if I'm honest, the first half was unacceptable.

'There were too many school-boy errors and we played in a school-boy manner.

'The second half was a little better, but there's no point locking the stable door if the horse has already bolted.'

Creasey also says he may be forced to venture back into the transfer market after losing influential defender, Luke Wilson, to injury.

Wilson is expected to be out for a month, leaving Creasey with no option but to bring in a fourth new recruit this month following the signings of Sam Vince, Liam Fryatt and Alex Beck last week.

'Luke did his hamstring, so we'll have to look to bring in a replacement,' he said.

'The lads we brought in last week are settling in OK and we certainly can't place any blame on their shoulders for the loss on Tuesday.

'I'm sure all three of the lads will be good additions to the squad in time.'

The new additions were brought in after Jack Friend left the club to sign for Thurlow Nunn League Division One side Wisbech St Mary last week.

Friend bagged a brace for his new side on Tuesday as the Saints saw off Stewart & Lloyds in the Hinchingbrooke Cup. Saints boss Arran Duke, whose side entertain Leiston reserves this afternoon, expects more goals from the former Peterborough and King's Lynn Town youngster.

'Jack took his first goal very well and he found himself in the right position for his second. It's a very pleasing start for him. Jack is a big, big signing.'
