Have no regrets – that is the message from Gary Mills to his Corby Town side as they battle to avoid relegation from the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League.

Have no regrets – that is the message from Gary Mills to his Corby Town side as they battle to avoid relegation from the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League.

The Steelmen’s hopes took a hit when they were beaten 3-1 by Ashton United last weekend.

However, with their rivals at the bottom also losing the situation remains as it was.

Now they need to turn their attention to the challenge of overcoming play-off chasing Whitby Town this Saturday with the quest for points becoming ever-more crucial.

And Mills is urging his team to give it their all.

“We’ve got four league games left and we have to get some wins,” the Corby boss explained.

“We know that 40 points (their current tally) will not be enough to keep us up so we need to go out and get some more.

“Thankfully there is no damage done from the weekend.

“Because Sutton Coldfield lost it hasn’t changed anything at the bottom.

“And our mindset must not change either.

“We need to stay positive and not lose sight of the end goal.

“We have to remain calm, remain focused and give it everything for four games.

“I want the players to put everything they have into these last few games so they can look back at the end of

the season and have no regrets.

“Even if it’s not enough to keep us up, I want everyone to know they have done all they could.”

Mills also called on the Steel Park faithful to maintain their inspirational backing.

“This is a huge game coming up for us,” he added.

“It will be really tough because they are going for a play-off place.

“But we’ve been pretty good at home and we need to carry that on.

“It’s become a bit of fortress and hopefully we’ll have another hostile environment for Whitby to come into.

“The fans have been fantastic and our home support is key.

“We’ve got two home games left and I know they’ll get behind us.

“They will make sure things are right off the field and we just have to match that on the pitch.

“We need two huge efforts from everyone.”

The Steelmen currently sit level with Sutton Coldfield on 40 points while Frickley remain a point behind with all three having played 42 matches.

Sutton Coldfield this weekend play host to promotion-chasing Spennymoor Town while Frickley travel to basement side Skelmersdale United.
