Wisbech Town will be looking to upset the odds again this afternoon as they aim to extend their FA Vase adventure.

The Fenmen face their fourth away trip in this term's competition and will travel to Hadleigh United for today's last-16 tie. Hundreds of the club's faithful are expected to head to Suffolk hoping to see their heroes replicate victories on the road at Gornal Athletic, Walsall Wood and Ashington which enabled Wisbech to reach the fifth round for the first time in 17 years.

Joint-boss Dick Creasey said: 'Anybody who gets to the last 16 of any competition, certainly a national one that's going to be played at Wembley stadium, will want to get there, and think they've got a chance of getting there.

'And they have. Everyone of us have got a chance of getting there. There's only going to be two teams that get there and only one team that wins it. If players don't turn up and want to perform I don't think they really want to be playing football. Everything else goes out of the window. It's all about who can produce it on the day.'

Town sit seventh in the United Counties League Premier Division while same-level Hadleigh sit top of the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division and were just two wins from reaching a Wembley final having reached the quarters last season.
