Wisbech Town boss Gary Setchell has called for the local public to give his side a push towards the UCL Premier Division title.

The Fenmen are unbeaten at home in league action since Setchell succeeded Dick Creasey in the hotseat. They sit second in the standings, six points behind leaders Yaxley but with three games in hand.

Five of their remaining nine fixtures are on home turf at the Elgoods Fenland Stadium - starting against Harborough on Saturday - and Setchell is convinced big crowds can provide a boost to his players.

“We’re going for the title, we’re scoring a lot of goals, we’re playing good football and we need the people of Wisbech to get behind us,” stated Setchell. “I know it was a cold and horrible day last Saturday, but we only had a crowd of 145 for a game against another team going for promotion.

“In years gone by we would have had treble that number at the very least. We’ve got some really important home games ahead and I hope people will turn out in force.”
