Wisbech Town's are looking to get back to winning ways today after seeing their four-match winning streak brought to an end in midweek.
The Fenmen lost 1-0 at second-from-bottom Boston Town on Tuesday night, bringing them down to earth with a bump following Saturday's 6-3 FA Vase success at Gornal Athletic.
The defeat also brought an end to a five-match unbeaten run and leaves Wisbech in eighth position in the ChromaSport UCL Premier Division.
Joint manager Paul Cousins said: 'I wasn't actually there because I couldn't get out of work commitments but it sounds like we weren't very good.
'I've been told we were the better side in the first half but then Boston came out in the second half and scored a freak goal, or a 'worldy' or whatever you want to call it.

'Up to that game we had been doing well though.'
Today the Fenmen welcome 12th-placed Desborough Town to the Elgoods Fenland Stadium and Cousins, who has no fresh injury worries going into the game, wants his team to get back to winning ways.

'I'm looking for a bit of a response really,' Cousins said. 'Maybe the players were leggy against Boston after extra-time in the Vase match but they are all young lads so they shouldn't be. But especially at home I want to see a response.
'You have got to earn the right to play in this league, they are all tough games, teams give 110pc and are physical.
'Obviously there were big expectations of us going into the league after coming second last year but it has not always been the case.
'Teams are a lot more physical in this league and some of the young lads found that hard to start with, but we have come to terms with that now I think.
'It was disappointing to see the unbeaten run end on Tuesday night but we've got to get back on track.'
