Joint-boss Paul Cousins expects three more points for Wisbech Town today when they host Stewarts & Lloyds Corby.

The Fenmen are looking to extend their unbeaten United Counties League Premier Division run to four matches when they entertain mid-table S&L at the Elgood's Fenland Stadium.

Wisbech, seventh, were unable to carry on their good form in midweek because their home clash with high-flying Deeping Rangers was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch. And now Cousins is looking for his troops to make up for lost time this afternoon.

'It was disappointing not to play (on Tuesday) but the pitch was waterlogged and if we had of played we would have ruined it,' said Cousins.

'S&L are a typical UCL side who will be hard to beat but I've spoken to the Peterborough Northern Star manager about them.

'His side beat them 3-1 this week and he said we should have no problems.'

Cousins revealed that the Fenmen will be appealing the red card Steven Reid's received against Long Buckby last weekend. The midfielder was sent off after 24 minutes for what the referee deemed to be a deliberate elbow on Wes Emery. But a brace from Callum Reed plus goals from Callum Stocks and Tony Battersby were enough to help Wisbech to victory – despite playing for more than an hour with 10 men – to the delight of Cousins and his fellow manager Scott Johnson.
