Wisbech Town joint-boss Creasey feels club’s FA Vase draw could have been worse

Joint-boss Dick Creasey insists he doesn't feel unlucky – despite Wisbech Town landing a seventh consecutive away game in the FA Vase.
The Fenmen's reward for a 2-1 triumph at Ashington is a trip to runaway Thurlow Nunn Premier Division leaders Hadleigh United in the fifth round on February 15. However, Creasey is refusing to be drawn on the negatives.
The Wisbech chief, who will be without injured midfielder Danny White tonight when his side host Huntingdon Town tonight in the UCL Knockout Cup second round, said: 'In cup competitions you get what you get. There's a 50pc chance you'll be home and a 50pc chance you'll be away.
'We're on the road again and from a club perspective that's disappointing. But I believe we'll take lots of fans over there with us. It's not a million miles away, it's easier for us to do our homework, and we could have had a lot worse places to go to, even if they're doing very well in their league.'
Striker Tom James' brace at the weekend set up the last-16 tie while United received a walkover after their potential fourth-round opponents Moneyfields and AFC Bitton were kicked out of the competition by the game's governing body.
