Jack Friend is hoping his goal touch doesn't desert him when Wisbech Town return to league action this afternoon.

Friend bagged a hat-trick in the Fenmen's 4-1 United Counties Knock Out Cup success against Potton last weekend.

And while there was relief at ending a six-match goal drought, the 19-year-old former Peterborough United youngster says there is more to come – and is targeting a double-figure return this season.

'I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders,' he said. 'I've been waiting for a while to get on the score-sheet and hopefully I can kick on now.'

Wisbech will be looking hope for a second Premier Division win of the season at home to Rothwell Corinthians today (3pm).

Friend said: 'I would love to score 20-plus and I think I can do it. The dressing room is brilliant at the moment which will make it easier for us all to perform well.'
