Wisbech Town boss Gary Setchell can be forgiven for having his eyes on two major prizes.

The Fenmen are sixth in the table, and will be hoping to improve on that position today when they entertain Eynesbury Rovers – one place and one point behind.

But the FA Vase has become a staple of Town’s fixture list this season – and Setchell believes they are genuine contenders after the 2-0 win at Racing Club Warwick set up a fourth-round tie with Bromsgrove Sporting.

“There are no easy games but we’re not an easy game,” said Setchell, who reached the Vase semi-finals with King’s Lynn Town six years ago.

“There are 32 teams left in the competition and probably all 32 of them that can go all the way because this is cup football and you’re only three games away from the semi-finals. We had numerous suspensions and unavailability but we managed to pull together and get a fantastic result for the football club, the boys and everyone else.”
