Coach Kev Ward believes Wisbech Town’s difficult run-in can work in their favour.

The Fenmen have the toughest set of upcoming fixtures out of the five teams chasing the United Counties League Premier Division title and two promotion spots.

They sit six points behind leaders Yaxley with three games in hand ahead of a home clash against Leicester Nirvana today (3pm).

Ward said: “We’ve got the hardest run-in on paper, but we’ve performed well and picked up good results against the better teams.

“Sometimes we’ve come unstuck against some of the lesser sides who are closer to the bottom of the table.

“We’ve also got a lot of home games ahead and our record at our place is very good.

“I think we’ve got enough in the locker, and enough quality throughout the squad, to be promoted,” he added.

Wisbech saw their trip to Daventry Town was postponed last Saturday due to a waterlogged pitch.
