Wisbech Town boss Roy McManus is tracking Fenland Park old boy Liam Nimmo ahead of today's Ridgeons Premier Division trip to Norwich United.

Nimmo formed a potent strike force with Liam Harrold before departing for Holbeach United, but McManus faces stiff competition from local rivals Spalding.

"He's been top of my wish list for a while and scored a lot of goals when he was last here," said McManus. "He's got a lot of natural ability and his hold up play will take pressure off us. I will be talking to Liam at the weekend and will get his decision there and then. Finances are tight and as much as I'd like to get a couple in, realistically I can only afford one and Liam's my main target. We have good youngsters coming through but they're not quite ready so I'm trying to bring in experienced players."

McManus is looking for the perfect boost against the Planters on the eve of next week's local derby with King's Lynn Reserves.

"It's a must-win game," he said. "With them in a similar situation, we'll be disappointed if we don't get a result."

Defender Lee Day is poised to return with Grant Rider set to undergo a late fitness test. The Planters' have injury doubts over Adie Ager, Matty Wright, Ryan Haynes and Andrew Fulcher. George Jermy returns after suspension with Robert Revell expected to shake off a knock from the midweek league cup exit against Thetford.
